Blagosklonny has a distinguished career in the field of oncology. Over the years, he has been researching about therapies for aging and cancer. Mikhail has developed a keen interest in finding cures that can kill infected cancer cells without interfering with the normal cells. One of his research zeroed in on the possible role of TOR signaling in cancer and aging. He is one of the proponents of Rapamycin, a drug that is capable of treating cancer. Rapamycin inhibits MTOR. This way, it prolongs the life span of an individual. In cancer, over-activation of MTOR signaling enhances the initiation and development of tumors. Mikhail found out that MTOR activity is deregulated in many types of cancer. Rapamycin was found to increase lifespan in mice. Mikhail believes that cancer patients should use that the drug to prolong their lives as it destroys cancer cells. Mikhail Blagosklonny is the brain behind the aging hyper-function theory that focuses on chemotherapeutic engineering. He has published over 270 papers in peer-reviewed journals, with more than 25,000 citations. Mikhail is the editor-in-chief of various widely read journals, including Cell Cycle, Oncotarget, Aging and Oncoscience. In addition, he works as an associate editor for Cancer Biology & Therapy. Mikhail has seen providing Cell Death & Differentiation with innovative ideas by virtue of sitting on its editorial board. His involvement in the field of cancer and aging has made him one of the renowned oncology scientists in the world. Over the years, he has exhibited a strong love for humanity and a deep vision to create a world free of diseases. Visit ResearchGate.Net to learn more about Mikhail’s latest work.
