Neil Greenspan, MD, PhD
Dr. Neil Greenspan
Professor Department of Pathology School of Medicine
Professor Division of General Medical Sciences School of Medicine
Dr. Neil Greenspan received his A.B., magna c*m laude, in Biochemical Sciences from Harvard College in 1975. He then earned M.D. and Ph.D. (Immunology) degrees at the University of Pennsylvania. From 1981 until 1986, Dr. Greenspan was a Resident in Laboratory Medicine (Clinical Pathology) at Barnes Hospital, and from 1982-1985 he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in Molecular Immunology at Washington University, both in St. Louis. In 1986, Dr. Greenspan became a faculty member at the CWRU School of Medicine. He is currently Professor of Pathology at CWRU and the Director of the Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics Laboratory at University Hospitals Case Medical Center.
My research interests include understanding, at a molecular level, immunological recognition, antibody function, vaccine efficacy, mechanisms of immunity to bacterial and viral pathogens, the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus, and applications of principles of evolution to immunology and related biomedical fields.
