There, she also acted as Assistant Dean for Regional Affairs at the University of Washington School of Medicine. An accomplished and active scientist with expertise in molecular genetics, Dr. Hyman holds the appointment of Professor of Microbiology at Boston University School of Medicine. Dr. Hyman earned her undergraduate degree at the State University of New York at Albany, followed by a master’s and doctoral degree at Brandeis University.
