Professor Bethan Peach (nee Lang) carried out her PhD research in the laboratory of Eric Barnard on the role of acetylcholine (ACh) receptors and after graduating, joined John Newsom-Davis myasthenia research group in Oxford until retirement in 2017. Her research at Oxford determined that Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) was also caused by antibodies, which led to the use of steroids and other immunosuppressant drugs and to a much improved diagnostic blood test.  Bethan is now a trustee of myaware and is currently chair of the medical/scientific committee. Married with two daughters, in her spare time she looks after her two grandchildren, multiple rabbits and chickens and pretends to enjoy watching her football team QPR.
