In 1995 Dr. Blum retired from the University of Texas Health Science Center giving up tenure to enter the world of business and biotechnology. In the second year, acting as manager of 1899 Limited Liability Corporation, his first weight management product grossed in excess of 60 million retail. His company Cyberpharm has launched a weight loss system with Rexall/Showcase which was launched early 1999. Dr. Blum continues to publish research articles, writes books (twelve), lectures, and is actively applying for numerous patents in the field of molecular genetics & nutrition. Dr. Blum is very active as Scientific Director of the Path Medical Foundation and former co-founder and Vice President of the American College of Addictionology and Compulsive Disorders. Dr. Blum is co-founder and Chairman& CSO of Impact Genomics and Managing Partner of IGENE, LLC. He is currently Chief Scientific Officer of G&G HealthCare Services, Inc. and Genomics HealthCare, LLC.  His concept of Reward Deficiency Syndrome is being embraced by world leaders in science and is part of the DSM –V, and the DRD2 gene discovery has been confirmed in over 4,000 publications from laboratories all over the world. He serves as Editor –in-Chief Omics Journal of Genetic Syndromes & Gene Therapy, Journal of Addiction Research & Therapy and Genetic Diseases & Genetic Reports, and is currently serving on twelve other prestigious journal’s editorial Boards. He has recently accepted the position of Chief Scientific Officer of Journal operations, Aperito, Publishing House.  Currently he has been named Volunteer Full Professor of the Department of Psychiatry & McKnight Brain Institute University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, Florida and Adjunct Research Professor, Human Integrated Services Unit University of Vermont Center for Clinical & Translational Science, College of Medicine, Burlington, VT.

Research Interest: Dr. Ge’s research focuses on protection of ischemic myocardium against ischemia and reperfusion injury. This includes the application of volatile anesthetics, adenosine receptor agonists, and ischemic preconditioning, the phenomenon in which myocardium exposed to brief, repeated periods of sublethal ischemia becomes resistant to the deleterious effects of ischemia or reperfusion. Recent evidence from this lab indicates thatgenetic modulation of GTP cyclohydrolase 1 to increase cardiac tetrahydrobiopterin and nitric oxide production can protect myocardium from ischemia and reperfusion injuryand preserve the ability of ischemic preconditioning to elicit cardioprotection that is impaired by hyperglycemia. Further investigations are being actively conducted, including the mechanisms underlying myocardial protection by overexpression of GTP cyclohydrolase 1 gene in the presence of hyperglycemia and diabetes and the potential of GTP cyclohydrolase 1 overexpression in reducing maladaptive myocardial remodeling followinginfarction in diabetic and nondiabetic myocardium.
