Biographical Info

Dr. Hyder is director of high-field horizontal small-bore systems at Yale’s MRRC, one of the most reputed in vivo magnetic resonance centers in the world conducting translational in vivo neuroscience and metabolism research. He is also founder and director of Yale’s QNMR Core Center, the only NIH-supported programmatic effort at Yale on neuroimaging with magnetic resonance technologies. He received a bachelor’s degree in physical chemistry in 1990 from Wabash and a doctoral degree in biophysical chemistry from Yale in 1995. He has been a faculty at Yale since 1999 and currently holds dual professor appointments in Diagnostic Radiology and Biomedical Engineering. He is a founding member of Yale’s Department of Biomedical Engineering. His work has produced over a hundred peer-reviewed publications. He has written and edited books on functional brain imaging. He holds several magnetic resonance patents on molecular imaging. He has had continuous NIH support since becoming an investigator. He has renewed grants from different scientific funding agencies. He has received early career awards from various scientific societies and funding scientific agencies. He sits on editorial boards of several international scientific journals and he reviews for many scientific journals spanning several disciplines. He has delivered numerous invited presentations around the globe. He serves on advisory panels of several scientific funding agencies.
