A very prominent personality in the field of Oncology, Mikhail Blagosklonny is one of the foremost scientists at New York’s Roswell Park Cancer Institute who specializes in the science of aging and cancer. Some of the significant contributions he has made as a student of cancer research include best methods and therapies for eliminating cancer, and the spread of tumors, the development of an efficient drug for cancer called rapamycin and the curtailing of the aging process or extension of life. The discoveries he has so far made were hardly being spoken of in the past. The distinguished doctor attained his M.D. degree in internal medicine from the First Pavlov State Medical University in St. Petersburg, Russia from where he also acquired a Ph.D. in cardiology and experimental medicine.
The work Mikhail Blagosklonny has done in various fields can be found all over the internet, but specifically on the Aging publication which is a highly regarded newsletter about the process of getting old or aging. He is the Chief Editor for the magazine apart from being a leader contributor to other journals like Oncotarget which is a free online that releases a lot of valuable information weekly about various subjects such as advances in the field of oncology and insights about peer review mechanisms, and general scientific news. He also features in Cell Cycle which deals with cell characteristic at the level of molecules. View Mikhail’s profile on Google Scholar
He was born and brought up in the same surroundings where he learned, and that is why his achievements in the medical field are quite remarkable. In all the institutions he attended, he consistently and continually demonstrated a sense of dedication that made him an exceptional learner. His interest in research work has caused him become a leading personality in the field of cancer studies and oncology. In an article which he released in 2015, the professor of oncology sets the record straight about various misconceptions and misunderstandings about the aging process as a result of the random build-up of decaying molecules. Through extensive research, he can prove that some procedures can be used to slow down getting old if the steps he has discovered and provided are followed.
There are several false theories about the body’s hyperfunctions, and the belief by many scientists that the aging process is a natural culmination of the body’s growth might not be right. There are many alternative medical practices such as the use of rapamycin which Dr. Mikhail believes can be used to extend the life of a body. The application of rapalogs can also increase the lifespan of someone, and prevent the prevalence of diseases associated with old age. The method is known as the model of TOR-centric because it targets the Rapamycin or TOR that slows down the aging speed. Many newsletters about the aging science have christened the method as the fountain of youth despite the fact that only a few years ago the use of TOR-centric medicine was viewed negatively because of lack of any concrete scientific evidence about its efficacy. All over the world, three other sources for the model are being discussed related to longevity promoting genes, the impact of diseases on aging, and cellular factors.
