Following completion of a dual major in biology and psychology and a certificate in neuroscience at Duke University, Haris Sair continued his medical training at Duke University’s School of Medicine, where he studied the use of functional brain imaging in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease under the tutelage of Jeffrey Petrella. Sair completed his residency training at Temple University and fellowship training at Massachusetts General Hospital before joining the faculty of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in 2010. Sair is internationally recognized for his research exploring the use of MRI-based functional connectivity of the brain and translating it to clinical use. More recently, he has explored the use of machine learning in advanced neuroimaging.

Sair has active collaborations with a wide network of physicians and scientists, exploring advanced imaging in areas such as preoperative brain mapping, traumatic brain injury, neurodegenerative disorders, and clinical prognosis. Together with Ferdinand Hui and Paul Yi, Sair co-founded the Radiology Artificial Intelligence Lab.
