Head of the laboratory of genetics of aging and longevity in MIPT
Alexey is a specialist in the field of genetics of longevity and aging. He studies regulation mechanisms of the rate of aging, longevity and stress resistance in animal models (DNA repairation, heat shock proteins, NF-kB, Tor- and PI3K-signaling cascade, apoptosis). Geroprotective properties of PI3K, TOR, NF-kBHis inhibitors were identified in his works using fruit flies Drosophila as a model. Alexey participated in the work of identifying mechanisms of exceptional longevity of Myotis brandtii bats. He was a contributor in creating a database of biomarkers of aging Digital Ageing Atlas.LinkedIn page
He is the CEO and co-founder of Insilico Medicine, Inc a Baltimore-based company utilizing big data analysis and deep learning for aging research and drug discovery. He also heads the International Aging Research Portfolio (IARP) knowledge management system for aging research and serves as the CSO of the Biogerontology Research Foundation in the UK.
Prior to Insilico Medicine, he co-founded the First Oncology Research and Advisory Center (FORAC), served as the director of ATI Technologies (Nasdaq: AMD) and as the director of GTCBio. He is also the head of research at NeuroG Neuroinformatics, a neuroinformatics company developing algorithms for cost-effective EEG devices to recognize imagined visual images and delay the onset of age-related neurodegenerative diseases.
Dr. Zhavoronkov is the author of over forty peer-reviewed scientific as well as popular papers and books on the many aspects of biogerontology, aging research and aging economics including “The Ageless Generation: how biomedical advances will transform the global economy” published by Palgrave Macmillan.
He holds two bachelor degrees from Queen's University, a masters in biotechnology from Johns Hopkins University and a PhD in physics and mathematics from the Moscow State University and is the adjunct professor at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.LinkedIn page
Junior Research Associate, PhD student in Laboratory of Genetics of Aging and Longevity (MIPT, Russia)
Svetlana has a master’s degree in molecular genetics, research the changes of stress gene expression in response to different stresses and different doses of stress in order to obtain the confirmation of the non-specific stress response theory and the role of stress in aging and hormesis. Other interests include analysis of geroprotective properties of various substances and participation in creation an interactive encyclopedia of aging.
