Stephen J Beebe received a BS in Zoology from Ohio University Athens 1970 and a PhD 1982 in medical sciences pharmacologyand biochemistry from the Medical College of Ohio, Toledo. He did postdoctoral studies 1982–1987 in the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute,Vanderbilt Nashville, Tenn, before serving as a Fulbright Scholar and Norwegian Marshall Scholar in Institute for Medical Biochemistry 300 S. J. Beebe and K. H. Schoenbach 2005:4 2005 and the National Hospital in Oslo Norway (1987–1988). Dr. Beebe has received various honors including Outstanding Senior Visiting Scientist from the Norwegian Cancer Society while in Bergen Norway (1997–1999), the Iwao Yasuda Award by the Society for Physical Regulation in Biology and Medicine, and the Martin Black Award from the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine.
His research has focused on signal transduction mechanisms and structure-function studies of protein kinases using multiple disciplinary approaches utilizing pharmacology, biochemistry, physiology,molecular and cellular biology, and physics. Recently, he has helped develop the potential use of high-intensity nanosecond pulsed electric fields as a novel stimulus to regulate intracellular signal transduction.
