Thane Campbell

Thane Campbell holds a PhD in Optical Immunology for combining biochemistry, live cell imaging and neural networks to predict immune responses, with GlaxoSmithKline. His research supported PROTEUS, a 3-university, interdisciplinary collaboration to build a fiber microscope for imaging inside human lungs. Thane learned about science venture design at Deep Science Ventures, where cohorts of scientists use first principles to explore the “impossible” challenges that lead to sector-dominating technologies. At Edinburgh Innovations he helped to rapidly establish Scotland’s first Agri-tech venture builder, DSV FAST, and his work to encourage research commercialization won the BBSRC Recognizing Excellence in Knowledge Transfer Award.
