Fahmeed Hyder is the Director of Yale University's Core Center for QNMR (http://qnmr.yale.edu). He is also the Technical Director of high field animal systems at Yale University's MRRC (http://mrrc.yale.edu), one of the most reputed in vivo magnetic resonance centers in the world with several horizontal wide-bore and high-field magnets for translational in vivo research in animals and humans. He received his bachelor's degree in physical chemistry in 1990 from Wabash College and his doctoral degree in biophysical chemistry from Yale University in 1995. He has been a Faculty Member at Yale University since 1998 and he currently holds dual appointments in diagnostic radiology and biomedical engineering as an Associate Professor without term. Bioimaging provides an unprecedented opportunity to translate discoveries from basic science research to human health care by improving diagnostics. The primary focus of Dr. Hyder's laboratory is to use various bioimaging techniques, specifically magnetic resonance, to visualize molecular processes of the functioning brain. His research interests span several areas in brain imaging: quantitative neuroimaging, neurometabolic and neurovascular coupling, oxygen consumption and transport, as well as translation of smart contrast agents. His laboratory combines magnetic resonance, electrophysiology, and optical imaging techniques. His work has produced nearly 100 publications in international peer-reviewed journals. He has also written and edited books on functional brain imaging. Dr. Hyder has served on numerous scientific advisory committees (at NIH, NSF, AHA). He serves on the Editorial Boards of several international journals and is programmatically active in ISMRM, ISCBFM, ISN, and ISOTT. He has received distinctions as a young scientist from ISMRM, ISCBFM, and ISOTT. Dr. Hyder received early faculty awards from both NIH and NSF. His laboratory has been continuously supported by NIH for more than a decade.
