James Fearnley

Director of Apiceutical Research Centre. CEO Nature’s Laboratory Ltd Despite training as a lawyer James Fearnley has spent the last 30 years involved with researching and manufacturing natural medicines derived from both from the beehive and from plants. For the last 20 years he has focussed on trying to understand the remarkable properties of propolis, a resinous product used by the bee to keep the hive free from infection. Over this period he has carried out research at the universities of Oxford, Manchester, Strathclyde York and Bradford and has published a number of peer reviewed articles. He is author of Bee Propolis: Natural Healing from the Hive and Propolis in Oral Healthcare with Dr. Phil Wander. He is the founder and Director of ARC (Apiceutical Research Centre) an independent not for Profit Company devoted to researching and understanding both medicines from the beehive and sustainable beekeeping. The centre is negotiating with National Parks for permission to build a physical centre in the heart of the North York Moors National Park.
Dave Watson

Dr Dave Watson has worked in the fields of mass spectrometry and chromatography for nearly 40 years. He has applied these techniques to a wide range of problems in the fields of natural products analysis and clinical chemistry. In the last ten years he has focused on metabolomics and was the local organiser for the 2013 Metabolomics conference in Glasgow. He has worked on propolis for the last eleven years and is particularly interested in its activity against infectious diseases which are prevalent in the developing world.
