Andrei asserts that Blagosklonny has played an instrumental role in developing new anti-cancer strategies and innovative cancer therapies. The institution seeks to share ideas and approaches that can be used to protect normal cells from chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Mikhail is credited for authoring the hyper-function theory of aging and anti-cancer approaches known as cell-cyclotheraphy and chemotherapeutic engineering. The scientist firmly believes that cancer can be cured. To this end, he has been a staunch supporter of Rapamycin, a potential cancer-curing drug. Rapamycin is known to extend the life of cancer patients.
The professor is an alumnus of the First Pavloc State Medical University where he graduated with his MD in Internal Medicine. In addition, Mikhail Blagosklonny returned to the same institution to pursue his PhD in Experimental Medicine and Cardiology. In 2002, the scholar was appointed to serve as the associate professor of medicine at the renowned Valhalla-based New York Medical College. At Ordway Research Institute, Blagosklonny worked as the chief scientist. By virtue of working for different leading institutions, Mikhail has gained extensive experience and knowledge on various fronts. To this end, he has been able to provide transformative leadership at the Roswell Park Institute. Follow Mikhail on Loop
