Dr Jackson Thomas (BPharm, MPharmSc, PhD) is a pharmacist, trialist, NHMRC-funded pharmaceutical scientist, and Associate Professor at the University of Canberra. Jackson also serves as a consultant for pharmaceutical manufacturers, biotech companies, and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Prior to his appointment at UC in 2013, he held academic/research positions at University of Tasmania and Charles Darwin University (2004-2012).
