College House, University of Exeter, St Luke's Campus, Heavitree Road, Exeter, EX1 2LU, UK

Overview

As Facilities Coordinator at the MGNC Cameron is responsible for the management of the day to day activities of the neuroimaging centre, which contains a 3T MRI scanner and PET-CT scanner for research and medical use. His roles include: coordinating and managing scanner bookings, setting up new projects, creating and reviewing health and safety documentation, coordinating maintenance and servicing, finance and resource management, and contributing to the future progression of the facility. Cameron is also appointed as a Radiation Protection Supervisor for the MGNC.

Cameron joined the University of Exeter in 2014 as a PhD Researcher in Professor Tamara Galloway’s ecotoxicology research group. His PhD investigated the impacts of pharmaceuticals released from wastewater on marine invertebrates, and how that impact is influenced by environmental change. Following this, in 2018, Cameron joined Professor Gaspar Jekely’s neuroscience research group as a Postdoctoral Research Associate and the Animal Facility Manager for the Marine Invertebrate Culture Unit (MICU). He oversaw the establishment of the facility as a sector-leading animal facility globally, and acted as a consultant for numerous animal facilities worldwide, alongside leading a multinational invertebrate aquaculture focus group. In 2021 Cameron moved to his current role as Facilities Coordinator for the Mireille Gillings Neuroimaging Centre in the College of Medicine and Health, University of Exeter.
