Dr Steven Kealey


After gaining his MSci in Chemistry at Imperial College London, Steve completed a PhD in carbon-11 radiochemistry under the supervision of Prof Nick Long FRSC. Since then he has worked as a postdoctoral researcher in PET imaging at the University of Bath, Imperial College London and as a research Fellow at King’s College London under the mentorship of Profs Shitij Kapur and Tony Gee. Throughout his career he has worked closely with researchers at the Imanova Centre for Imaging Sciences (and previously the GSK Clinical Imaging Centre) at Hammersmith Hospital on the development of novel PET imaging agents for the study of neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders.

Steve joined the MICL in 2015 to develop novel radiotracers to image CNS progenitor cells, to further our understanding of the regenerative processes in multiple sclerosis. His work is co-supervised by Prof Robin Franklin at the Cambridge MRC-Wellcome Trust Stem Cell Institute. Outside of work his hobbies include home winemaking, cycling and pottering about with his two children.
