Dr. Andrew Shaw

Lecturer in Clinical Biochemistry

School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences

Maudland Building, MB138


Subject Areas: Biosciences

My research interests focus on the biochemical mechanism of diseases such as cardiovascular disease, neurodegeneration, and cancer. Specifically, I am interested in the interplay between NO-redox balance, bioenergetics, and metabolism in the mitochondria.

Full Profile


  • Ph.D. Biomedical Science, University of Aberdeen, 2014
  • M.Sc. Environmental & Biochemical Toxicology, Lancaster University, 2008
  • B.Sc. (Hons) Ecology, University of Stirling, 2004

Research Activities

I work alongside Professor Frank Martin, using spectroscopic techniques to analyse biofluids and tissue in various projects.

I am also currently interested in the role of NO-redox balance in glioma and maintain close collaborative links with Channon/Crabtree groups in Oxford.
