Prof Dave Barratt
Professor of Analytical Bioscience
Dave obtained a BSc (Hons) in Physiology and Biochemistry from the University of London (1976) and a PhD from the University of Birmingham (1981).
After 4 years working in the pharmaceutical industry in drug metabolism/drug analysis research (Glaxo, SK&F) and a 4 year worldwide travelling break, he moved to Nottingham in 1989 as a research fellow. Dave was appointed to a lectureship at Nottingham in 1992, promoted to Senior Lecturer in 1998 and to Associate Professor and Reader in 2004.
He is a research leader and founder of the Centre for Analytical Bioscience (CAB) which focuses on the development of innovative analytical methods to measure biological events in complex biological systems. CAB is a multidisciplinary research group involved in a wide range of collaborative projects where challenging or novel approaches to bioanalysis are required.
Dave received the Nurofen Pain Relief Project Award (1991), a national award sponsored by Boots plc in open competition for the best published paper on pain relief.
