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.
