Cameron has had a multidisciplinary research career covering biochemistry, molecular biology, histology, microscopy imaging (both optical and electron) and image analysis. Cameron managed the Centre for Advanced Microscopy at the Parkville branch of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research from 2008 until its closure in 2012. He then joined the Centre for Dynamic Imaging at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute further expanding his skill sets in whole animal imaging, and malaria research. In 2013 he took on the role of manager for the imaging and flow capability within the Drug Discovery Biology theme. Over the last 7 years the facility at MIPS has expanded to include new cutting edge and unique hardware such as FLIM, CARS, FCS and super resolution. Additionally image analysis has become a key part of all projects.
Cameron is a respected microscopist and image analyst that has been a part of many and varied projects from cells, mice, worms, fish and even crown of thorns starfish. Collaborations extend outside of Australia to the US and Europe. Cameron is often called on to present workshops on image analysis across Australia
