Pete Lally is a Magnetic Resonance (MR) physicist in Bioengineering, and both a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow and Edmond and Lily Safra Fellow.

He obtained his PhD at Imperial College London, developing MR spectroscopy techniques for application in the neonatal brain in the initial weeks following perinatal hypoxic-ischaemic injury.

He is now developing MRI techniques for rapid, high-resolution brain imaging, with a particular focus on neurodegenerative disease.
