As an undergraduate at KCL, studied Chemistry and Physics followed by studies for PhD Chemistry (1961 - 1967). Post doctoral fellow at St. Thomas's Medical School (1967 - 1970). Took up an academic position at Essex University (1970 - 1987). Returned to KCL in 1987 as Professor of Medicinal Chemistry. The research focus of Professor Hider's research is centred on iron and gallium chemistry. The research group is involved in transnational research, having introduced deferiprone, CP94, CN128 iron maltol and galiprost into man. One current interest is the targeting of iron chelators to mitochondria.
