John Kealy, PhD

Chief Scientific Officer / Head of Ulysses Maynooth

John graduated with a B.A. Mod in Neuroscience from Trinity College Dublin and completed a Ph.D on the neurophysiology of learning and memory at the Department of Psychology, National University of Ireland, Maynooth. Since then, his postdoctoral experience has largely been built around the intersection between behaviour, metabolism, and the cerebral vasculature in order to create meaningful, translational neuroscience research. John’s scientific interests revolve around the effects of genetic, pharmacological, and metabolic interventions both on normal brain function and in animal models of complex neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders – with a focus on disorders such as schizophrenia, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease and delirium.
