Biography

Craig McBeth is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow within the school of Pharmacy at the University of Nottingham under the supervision of Associate Professor Frankie Rawson. His current research focusses on the development and implementation of bioelectronic medicine/ therapeutics as means to treat disease.

Craig received a BSc (hons) degree in Biomedical sciences from Leeds Beckett University in 2013, he later worked as a biomedical support worker for the NHS and as a Microbial Analyst for ALS prior to commencing his PhD. His PhD focussed on the development of electrochemical sensors for the determination of biomarkers found in oxidative stress within a cell culture environment under the supervision of Dr Duncan Sharp and Dr Andrew Paterson at Leeds Beckett University.

Craig went on to become a CRUK funded Research Fellow at The University of Warwick, where under the supervision of Orkun Soyer, explored and electrochemically interrogated electron transfer mechanics in cancer cells to reverse/ manipulate Warburg metabolism. This research demonstrated electron transfer could be exploited through tandem redox events and controlled by electrochemical means, resulting in changes to lactate production from cancer cells.

After his time at Warwick, Craig undertook a postdoc position at Heriot-Watt University within the school of Biological Chemistry, Biophysics and Bioengineering where he researched the influence of various nanomaterials on different cell types for the development of a tiered-testing strategy for the GRACIOUS framework, a European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, under the supervision of Professor Vicki Stone; Craig Joined the University of Nottingham in 2021.

Expertise Summary

Dr McBeth's research focusses on multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to explore the interfacing of electronic stimuli with biological phenomena. He has therefore developed knowledge and skills in a variety of disciplines, such as electrochemistry, material science, additive manufacturing, cell metabolism, biosensors, molecular biology, biotechnology, biochemistry, and bioelectronics.
