Dr. Noreen Hynes has over 30 years of medical and public health experience in both international and domestic settings. Her career has encompassed basic and applied research, epidemiology, public health, clinical medicine, and the regulatory aspects of medical countermeasures for emerging infectious diseases.

Dr. Hynes has been affiliated with The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and the Schools of Medicine and Public Health University since 1997. She is currently an Associate Professor of Medicine (part time) in the School of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases and is jointly appointed in the School of Public Health in the Department of International Health. Since retiring from a 30-year career with the U.S. government in 2007, Dr. Hynes has served as the director of the new Geographic Medicine Center in the Division of Infectious Diseases in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, as the Medical Director of the Johns Hopkins Tropical & Travel Medicine Service, and as the Baltimore Site Director for the CDC-sponsored GeoSentinel Surveillance System.

Dr. Hynes' research interests focus on infectious diseases at the clinical-public health interface in resource constrained settings in both tropical and temperate regions.
