Vice President Business and Product Development
Let me introduce myself for those that don’t know me yet. I’m Matt Pratt-Hyatt and I’m the new Vice President for Product and Business Development at Real Time Labs (RTL). Let me say, I am excited about this new opportunity, but I will get into that in a minute. I have been in the toxin field for about 12 years now, and I have been in functional/integrative/alternative medicine for about six years. I received my PhD in 2008 from the University of Michigan and then did additional training in the labs of Paul Hollenberg and Curtis Klaassen, whom I consider titans in their fields.
Ever since high school when I took genetics, I have been fascinated with the idea of personalized medicine. Since everyone is unique, we should be able to tailor treatments to meet the unique needs of our patients, and this has been my goal for the last 20 years. I now take the combined power of genetics, metabolomics, and small molecule detection to help provide patients with care that is truly personalized to their own health.
I am extremely excited to be a part of RTL. For the last 15 years, they have been making huge pushes to improve the lives of those affected by toxic mold exposure. They have a passion for knowledge and the truth, which matches my own, and for years I have admired their scientific skills demonstrated in their research papers. I hope to continue this tradition of providing academic findings to the community through our research. I will be taking over the research projects at RTL and I hope to hear from the practitioner community about what areas we should be focusing on.
What should you expect from us at RTL now that I am on board? Well, we are going to shake things up. Expect to see blog posts from me here once a month, as well as webinars occurring about every other month. These webinars will be provided by myself, Dr. Hooper, as well as other expert guest speakers. Beginning next year, we will be providing training events around the country to help practitioners learn more about using our tests in their practices. We are also going to start shifting, or rather expanding our focus. In the past, RTL has been mainly focused on mold exposure, however, we will be growing our offerings to include diagnostic assessments for a variety of chronic illnesses. In this vein, I have established a research team at RTL and we hope to have new tests coming out next year and for many years thereafter.
RTL will continue to provide great testing with quick turnaround times. We will also continue to provide consultations with patients and practitioners. I will be starting to provide consultations with practitioners beginning next week. I have been consulting with practitioners for the last four years and I really love the interactions that these opportunities present, so please call us and set up an appointment. I will also be traveling around the country to multiple conferences, speaking both at the podium and with attendees at RTL’s booth. Please stop by and say hello – I’d love to chat. Like I said, I am excited for this new phase in my life, and I hope to talk with you all soon.
