Nick Brown
Innovation & Technology Architect
AstraZeneca
Nick joined AstraZeneca in 2000, working within drug project teams developing software to analyse experimental microarray studies with thousands of data points. In 2004, he became a team leader in Advanced Science & Technology Labs, managing large computational clusters (100TB+) and designing automated image algorithms to screen millions of high-throughput screening images per day. His passion for handling Big Data grew further in 2007 when he helped develop a new department, New Opportunities, focusing on identifying new disease areas for AstraZeneca to pursue, through drug repositioning, in-licensing and acquisitions. Here Nick worked closely with external partners to develop business intelligence applications through designing an internal search based platform with >60 million scientific documents. Most recently Nick was hired as an innovation & technology architect, working with external biotechs, startups and research labs to bring new IT breakthroughs into AstraZeneca. He is currently leading a project to revolutionise search in R&D.
