Dr. Elliot Brown graduated as a medical doctor in 2018 from the University of Birmingham Medical School, whilst also completing a Bachelor of Medical Science degree in 2017, contributing to the research and development of a novel anti-angiogenesis cancer vaccine. Currently he works at the Luton & Dunstable University Hospital and aims to pursue a career in anaesthetics and intensive care.
Elliot has a long-standing interest in the areas of aerospace medicine and space life sciences. In 2016 he undertook research at the Microgravity Centre in PUCRS, Porto Alegre, Brazil, focused on a new method of conducting CPR in hypogravity, and the use of lower body positive pressure to model the metabolic effect of walking on Mars. He presented the latter research at the 2017 Aerospace Medicine Association Annual Scientific Meeting in Denver, Colorado. Also, in 2017, Elliot completed a Space Physiology Course promoted by the European Space Agency.
He has a keen interest in medical education and is completing a PGCERT in Simulation Education at the University of Hertfordshire. Through his clinical, educational and research roles, Elliot is keen to contribute to the aerospace medical field. He is particularly interested in how space life science research can be translated into clinical practice.
