About David Paul Smith
I am is a National Teaching Fellow and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. My innovative practice has been awarded the Royal Society of Biology HE Educator of the Year award 2019 and recognised by my students with the Sheffield Hallam University Inspirational Teaching Award for the last ten years. I actively collaborate to develop and disseminate his own and others teaching practices, working both within his university and across the sector in learning, teaching and assessment groups. Through these activities, I build technology-enhanced learning methods for student engagement in both the classroom and laboratory. Pedagogical publications are centred on student interaction and engagement. My biological research interests combine protein chemistry, cell culture and mass spectrometry to investigate the molecular basis of Parkinson's disease and cancer spheroid models. Studies focus on developing 3D cell culture models and investigating these through proteomics, metabolomics, and imaging technologies.
