Vladimir Skulachev: a biography
Doctor of biological Sciences Vladimir p. Skulachev – the person very known in the scientific world. He has achieved significant success in domestic biochemistry. In the mid-1970s, was elected a corresponding member of the USSR Academy of Sciences, and in the early 1990s he became an academician of the Academy of Sciences.
In recent years the academician has gained wide popularity among compatriots in connection with the discovery, on the threshold of which it stands. The fact that Vladimir Skulachev old age turned into the main object of his attention. Talking about this sensation: was allegedly invented by Vladimir Skulachev a cure for old age.
The future academician was born in February 1935 in the capital, in the family of Moscow intellectuals. His father was an architect. Parents instilled son a love of reading books in their home were many.
Not surprisingly, the 157-th Metropolitan school boyfriend graduated with a gold medal. For further education he chose the main University of the country – Moscow state University named after N. V. Lomonosov. Exact science has always been a priority for Vladimir. But when the question arose that it is necessary to choose one direction that will involve the whole future life, he chose biology and soil faculty.
In 1957 a graduate handed a diploma with honors. But the scientific atmosphere that prevailed at MSU, liked it so much yesterday that he decided to stay in school. Enrolled in graduate school, choosing a «native» Institute of biology and soil faculty.
At the Department of biochemistry of animals, a young graduate student he studied under the guidance of the undisputed in the scientific world authority – professors of Moscow state University, Sergei Evgenievich Severin and Vladimir Alexandrovich Engelhardt.
Today the work of the academician focused on research conducted by the Institute of physico-chemical biology named after A. N. Belozersky on the basis of the Moscow state University and at the faculty of bioengineering and bioinformatics of the University.
In 1965 the young scientist has received the proposal of academician Andrei Nikolaevich Belozersky hold the position of head of the Department of bioenergy at the newly opened lab that was doing research in the field of molecular biology and Bioorganic chemistry.
In 1973, after the death of academician Belozersky, Vladimir Petrovich was appointed Director of the laboratory. And in 1991, the laboratory, whose research success was not questioned, turned into a research Institute of physico-chemical biology named after A. N. Belozersky.
Vladimir Skulachev and today is the Director of the Institute. But in 2002 he was appointed Dean of the faculty of bioengineering and bioinformatics, Moscow state University.
Many years the academician working on a study of antioxidants – substances which can neutralize free radicals, «sostarivayut» the body of all living beings. In other words, Skulachev invented a cure for old age. And some success he has achieved.
The team of Vladimir Petrovich has developed a drug that can fight aging eyes. The drops are called «Sisomicin». The world’s first patented drug that can penetrate the mitochondria. In indications of drops of academician Skulachev indicates there is a disease called «dry eye». But as it turned out, with the help of these miracle drops are able to overcome almost all kinds of diseases of the eye: from the banal to dryness to glaucoma and cataracts.
The developer claims that «Sisomicin» is only the first step in the fight against aging. The fact that the development and research of drugs for the treatment of eye diseases takes less time than the preparations against diseases of other organs. But it will take quite some time, and will be developed medicines from aging of the whole organism. The academician claims that the price is quite «demokratycznej» and available to all. Moreover, these drugs will be used as a dietary Supplement.
Have to wait for that beautiful time, when all who do not wish to grow old, you can go to the drugstore and buy «the cure of old age, Vladimir Skulachev, to look young for as many years as you will not get bored to live in this beautiful world. In addition, the skeptics who call academic charlatan, loudly confounded.
Unfortunately, the personal life of Vladimir Skulachev classified as «top secret». Although, on the other hand, this is understandable, because the academician is not a star of show business.
It is known, that Vladimir Petrovich four children. Daughter Tatyana, the eldest of them. She was born in 1964. She is also researcher, but chose Philology and linguistics. Son Maxim, who was born in 1973, like his father, a molecular biologist.
In 1976, Skulachev born two sons, Constantine and innocent.
In his spare time Vladimir likes to go skiing or to play badminton. On the question of whether he is a believer, said that rather agnostic.
