Herbert Jelinek graduated in Human Genetics (Honours) from UNSW, Sydney and received a GradDip(Neurosci) from ANU (Canberra) followed by a PhD (University of Sydney ). His research is in diabetes and diabetic complications focusing on strategies for automated identification of cognitive, cardiac, peripheral vascular and retinal complications using biosignal and image processing. He has established a one stop screening unit for diabetes and cardiovascular disease at Charles Sturt University, Albury.
Currently Dr Jelinek has an adjunct position as clinical associate professor at the Australian School of Advanced Medicine, Macquarie University and The Rural Clinical School, University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia as well as being an honorary senior research fellow with the Centre for Informatics and Optimization at Federation University, Ballarat, Australia.
Dr Jelinek has been teaching for over 15 years in Anatomy, Physiology, Pharmacology, Neuroscience, Chronic Disease and Molecular Biology. He is a member of the Physiotherapy and Speech Pathology Course Development Committees and continues to develop Anatomy, Physiology, Biology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience subjects for the Allied Health Courses offered by School of Community Health. Dr Jelinek works with both internal as well as distance education.
Dr Jelinek has been involved in diabetes and its complications research since 2002, which has as its main investigating change in cognitive function, cardiac, renal and nervous system genetics, physiology and biochemistry. He is an expert in nonlinear analysis of 2D images and biosignal processing. He has been involved in diabetes complications screening for over 10 years. He has contributed to the development of automated diabetic retinopathy screening tools, ECG analysis applications as well as web-based image analysis tools (Fractop V3). He is involved in developing engineering solutions in cardiac and stroke rehabilitation, as well as in rural and remote diabetes complications screening using engineering technology.

Dr Jelinek primarily contributes to providing a diabetes and cardiovascular health screening research program for rural communities. He offers an all-in-one, one-stop diabetes screening opportunity to the Border (Albury-Wodonga) community He is currently working in the UAE investigating depression, diabetes and cardiovascular disease in Emirati and Bedouin populations.
