Brian McCann, Gene Therapy Administrator

Brian joined Eye Research Team Oxford in May 2017, after completing forty two years with the Ministry of Defence, nineteen years of which were as a serving soldier in the Royal Engineers. A motivated, adaptable and professional individual, who’s character has been shaped by his time in the Army, he has most recently filled the role of a Customer Service Manager for Oxfordshire, supporting the MOD’s IT & communications provision and support department, acting as the interface between the MOD customer base and the third party IT and communication suppliers. His move to the NHS has been a complete change from anything he has experienced previously, but he is enjoying working in the highly motivated Gene Therapy team and adapting to the challenge of a completely new environment. In his newly created role, Brian provides a wide and varied range of administrative support, from assisting in the setting up of new trials, through the day to day running of the trials, providing contact with trial participants, maintaining the associated documentation and study files, and with supporting the many audits that accompany any trial.
