About Dr. Hellen Greenblatt
Dr. Greenblatt was awarded a dual PhD in Microbiology [the study of microscopic organisms] and Immunology [the study of the immune system] from the State University of New York, Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn N.Y. (This school, founded before the Brooklyn Bridge was built, was revolutionary in taking medicine out of the lecture halls and bringing it directly to the patient. It is still one of the nation’s leading urban medical centers and has a Nobel Prize Winner in Medicine as a member of its faculty.)
Dr. Hellen, as many call her, has lectured at major medical centers both in the States and overseas. She has received funding from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institute of Health (NIH) to study immune responses to infectious organisms. Dr. Hellen has conducted research in the area of viruses, bacteria, and parasites, that cause health issues for humans and companion animals. She has held research and management positions such as Chief Science Officer, Director, President, and Vice President for a variety of biomedically-oriented companies. Her research teams have been responsible for developing diagnostic tests for detecting HIV and other infections in mothers and newborns and these assays were used both domestically and world-wide to initiate or change the course of treatment.
