Boyd Haley, PhD served as a medic in the U.S. Army and obtained his PhD in chemistry/biochemistry at Washington State University. He was an NIH Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Physiology, Yale University Medical School. His first academic appointment was at the University of Wyoming in 1974 where he was promoted to full professor in 1983. In 1985 he was hired by the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center with academic appointments as professor in the College of Pharmacy in the Division of Medicinal Chemistry and in the Department of Biochemistry. He was appointed to be chair and professor of chemistry/biochemistry in the Department of Chemistry from 1996 to 2005. He retired from the University of Kentucky in July 2008. He has lectured throughout the world and testified before congressional committees and the Institute of Medicine regarding various aspects of mercury toxicity and neurological diseases.

Present talks include mercury depletion of molybdenum which leads to the inhibition of sulfite conversion to sulfate which leads to lower mylenization of the central nervous system in autism and other neurological illnesses; oxidative stress as a common occurrence in autism including aspects concerning causation and dietary treatment; and low glutathione levels in people of all ages as a major risk factor for many viral infections including influenza.
