Kate Brown - Katharine Brown Research


I mostly conduct content analysis and transcription from all types of qualitative research, including face to face interviews, telephone interviews, group discussions and ad boards. I also provide a transcription service.

In addition, I attend central locations to conduct live analysis and attend project debriefs.

I am also able to provide full written reports and final presentation charts, or work with the client closely to do this together.

I can work completely independently or as part of the project team. I work from my home office but I am happy to travel to central locations and client offices.


I have a degree in physiology and pharmacology and 23 years experience of working in the pharmaceutical field.

I worked in pharmacovigilance at MHRA before pursuing a career at a medical market research agency where I was a project director working on both domestic and international projects. I became an independent consultant in October 2001 and have experience in all therapy areas, but particularly in oncology. I also have experience working in FMCG on a wide variety of topics including sweets, chocolates and hot drinks.
