He was an NIH Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Physiology, Yale University Medical School from 1971 to 1974.He has been a professor and Chairman of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Kentucky since 1996. In the past 17 years, Dr. Haley has emphasized studies on the biochemistry of Alzheimer's disease.  His research in the biochemical aberrancies in Alzheimer's disease also led to his identifying mercury toxicity as a major factor, perhaps even a causal factor for this disease. He was one of the first to propose that the organic-mercury preservative Thimerosal in vaccines was the most likely toxic agent involved in Gulf War Syndrome and autism related disorders. In the past few years, Dr. Haley has testified before numerous government agencies on the effects of mercury toxicity from dental amalgams and vaccines.
