He then undertook a PhD in the Cardiovascular Division at the University of Manchester, which investigated the interplay between adipose tissue and small resistance arteries in obesity and hypertension. This was followed by a post-doctoral appointment and BHF Travelling Fellowship at the University of Vermont with Professor Mark Nelson, before being appointed Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester.
Dr Greenstein has published his work in journals such as Circulation, Hypertension and the journal of Hypertension in addition to presenting workshops and new data on the microcirculation at major international conferences. His work is funded in its entirety by the British Heart Foundation, where he is an Intermediate Fellow. His research programme investigates the mechanisms by which adipose tissue influences vascular function and how this is dysregulated in obesity. He also works as a consultant physician, with responsibility for general medicine, geriatrics and hypertension.
