Dr. Gudkov is focusing on developing and applying new technologies for functional gene discovery, which will lead to designing new therapeutic approaches to cancer treatment. Dr. Blagosklonny, well-known for his expertise in cancer and aging research. He has published dozens of experimental and theoretical papers that encompassed two important subjects: selective killing cancer cells with deregulated cell cycle or drug resistance by exploiting their resistance and the hyperfunction (or quasi-programmed) theory of aging. In its turn, this theory helped to rediscover Rapamycin as a well-tolerated anti-aging drug.
