Hamid R. Noori, mathematician and neuroscientist, received his PhD from the faculty of natural sciences of the University of Heidelberg (Germany) in 2008. Subsequently, he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing at the University of Heidelberg and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute at Princeton University. In 2013, he received his venia legendi from the medical faculty at Mannheim. He is currently the research group leader for in silico pharmacology at the Central Institute for Mental Health in Mannheim (Germany). He serves as the editor in chief of the Springer journal In Silico Pharmacology, and as a scientific consultant for the mathematical modeling of adult neurogenesis within the collaborative research center SFB 873 (German Research Foundation, DFG) for stem cell research.
His main research areas include mathematical modeling and simulation of neurobiological processes, computational pharmacology, non-linear analysis, hysteresis phenomena, and computational physics.
In particular, Noori and his colleagues at the Central Institute for Mental Health in Mannheim are working on alternative strategies for the quantitative classification of the neurochemical effects of psychiatric drugs that could change our view of the pharmacological treatment of mental disorders.
He is a member of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) and has been a reviewer for Computing Reviews since 2011.
