Dr Andrew Cameron completed his undergraduate degree in 2006 at the University of Queensland, double majoring in Chemical and Biological Engineering. After graduating with First Class Honours, he then received an Australian Postgraduate Award and went on to complete a PhD in Tissue Engineering at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology. Whilst in the final stages of his PhD, Andrew received a Commercialisation Training Scheme Grant that enabled him to complete a Graduate Certificate in Research Commercialisation. Upon completing his PhD in 2012, Andrew took up a postdoctoral role in the Tissue Engineering Research Group in RCSI, under the supervision of Prof. Fergal O’Brien. Here he was responsible for driving the development of a thin-film, collagen-based material for corneal regeneration. In 2016, Andrew commenced a Fellowship in the BioInnovate Ireland programme at NUI Galway, spending time in the University Hospital Galway and the Mayo Clinic (Rochester) and looking at medical device innovation to address unmet cardiovascular clinical needs. He joined the Duffy Kelly Labs in 2017 and worked as a Commercialisation Lead on translational research projects within the labs.

Andrew is now a Principal Investigator working on his own innovative project. He is developing a technology called "Tight Alright", a pressure bandage for the treatment of venous leg ulcers. The project is funded by Enterprise Ireland's Commercialisation Fund. "We are developing a novel adjustable compression device that measures and monitors sub-bandage pressure for the treatment of venous leg ulcers (VLUs) - Tight Alright. The major clinical advatages of our technology over current technologies is the ability to accurately measure the sub-bandage pressure (providing safety/efficacy) and continuously monitor over this time. Ultimately, the Tight Alright device could help to improve healing outcomes by enabling concordance between patients and caregivers and ensuring the provision of evidence-based therapy."
