ACADEMIC LEAD BIOGRAPHY
Tony Gee is Professor of PET and Radiochemistry in the Division of Imaging Sciences at King's College London and a visiting Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Imperial College London. He obtained a BSc(Hons) in Chemistry at the University of Sussex (1985), and his PhD in Radiopharmaceutical Organic Chemistry at Uppsala University, Sweden (1991). Since then he has worked as the Director of PET Chemistry at the Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals Clinical PET centre, UMDS, London, and the Aarhus University Hospital PET Centre in Aarhus Denmark, before moving to GlaxoSmithKline to spearhead the use of PET imaging in drug discovery and development before moving to his current position at King's College London.

Testimonials
Here is what some of the students said about the last course:

  • Course well organised, modules cover different topics that are useful for people with different backgrounds
  • Found the course to be very well balanced between talks, workshops and breaks
  • Definitely would recommend it to jump start a career in PET. Plus speakers quality it top notch
  • Everything was perfect
  • Everything was very well planned out the quality of the course were very informative, very nice and interesting course.
  • High calibre speakers ,all the presentations easily understandable even when not from the field nice and warm welcome from the organisers, easy interactions with the speakers and other attendees
  • Good series of lectures that flow through the process.
  • Excellent presentations, lovely people, nice environment to meet fellow researchers and practical workshops extremely useful, and nice overview of all aspects of PET research, ideal for people who focus on one domain (radiochemistry, methodology, biology, clinics) to acquire fundamentally useful knowledge from other domains to do good PET research.
  • Gives a very good general and some detailed overview of PET it gives me to exact amount of detail to use it in my line of work
  • Probably perfect for chemists.
  • The course was very interesting and well thought out to give an overview from start to finish of PET, and the course booklet is a useful reference for continuing reading and learning
  • Great course, nice overview of PET in general.
  • The course is very useful to learn how to synthesise radiolabelled compounds and how these compounds are used in medical applications, how the pet machines work and how they are composed
  • It was also good to meet others in a similar situation and get to know them I would suggest it to a colleague.
  • I found it really informative and useful I'm very happy for attending this course.
  • It's very useful and well organised.
  • Good if they have little background knowledge in PET
  • I met a lot of available and well prepared people very thorough overview of basics good overview of every step of pet physics, modelling.
  • Very interesting course. It’s different to remember everything but we learnt a lot it was very good course covering the whole area of PET from chemistry to physics to physiology
  • Thank you
  • Great job and very nice people
  • Paul Marsden was excellent
  • The course covered a wide range of topics in field of PET chemistry
  • Very comprehensive, good overview in all relevant fields: physics, chemistry, biology and medicine Tony Gee, Rafa and Nisha's lectures
  • Understanding of how ligands work A full overview from start to finish It's a long road to develop new tracers
  • Well organised, friendly people, helpful people. I've enjoyed these days.
  • Thanks to everybody for this opportunity
