About our sector

In the Evolutionary Cytogerontoly Sector studies of aging mechanisms on various cultured cells (normal and transformed, animal and plant ones) are carried out. Besides, using the test-systems elaborated in the sector (the "stationary phase aging" model, the cell kinetics model, colony-forming ability evaluation) prospective pro- and anti-aging factors of various origin are investigated. Much attention is being paid to the computer simulation of the cell aging. The Evolutionary Cytogerontology Sector cooperates closely with many departments of the School of Biology (embryology, biochemistry, bioorganic chemistry, etc.) as well as with the Research Institute of Physicochemical Biology of MSU.

The Sector is headed by Alexander N. Khokhlov, PhD, DBSci
