Keely Named Chair of Cell and Regenerative Biology
Keely is now a professor of cell and regenerative biology, director of the Molecular Pharmacology Graduate Program and co-leader of the Tumor Microenvironment Program in the UW Carbone Cancer Center.
Keely received her BS and PhD degrees from the University of Minnesota. She then completed postdoctoral fellowships at Washington University in St. Louis and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (UNC).
During the former fellowship, she was a Lucille P. Markey Fellow in the Special Emphasis Pathway in Human Pathobiology, which was designed to emphasize clinical relevance in the training of research scientists.
After a few years on the faculty at the University of North Carolina, Keely was recruited to the School of Medicine and Public Health as an assistant professor of pharmacology in 1999.
She developed a highly productive independent research program and built bridges across the campus, with leadership roles in the UW Carbone Cancer Center and an affiliate appointment in the Department of Bioengineering. Her national service activities include appointments on many federal review committees and study sections and editorial board membership on Biology Open.
Her honors include the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Award, the American Association Cancer Research Career Development Award and the Shaw Scientist Award.
