Biography, scientific achievements

A. Moskalev graduated from the Syktyvkar State University. He studied at the Department of Human and Animal Physiology of the Chemical-Biological Faculty. In 2001, A. Moskalev defended his PhD dissertation in speciality "Radiobiology" at the Lomonosov Moscow State University. At the same place, he defended a doctor of biological sciences dissertation in the area of radiobilogy.
Dr. Alexey Moskalev is working in the area of genetics of aging, focusing on the effect of low doze ionizing radiation on lifespan and aging of Drosophila strains with defects in apoptosis, DNA repair and defense genes. Specialist in the field of genetics of longevity and aging. He studies regulation mechanisms of the rate of aging, longevity and stress resistance in animal models (DNA repairation, heat shock proteins, NF-kB, Tor- and PI3K-signaling cascade, apoptosis). Geroprotective properties of PI3K, TOR, NF-kBHis inhibitors were identified in his works using fruit flies Drosophila as a model. Alexey participated in the work of identifying mechanisms of exceptional longevity of Myotis brandtii bats. He was a contributor in creating a database of biomarkers of aging Digital Ageing Atlas. Provides evidence for the hypothesis that low doze ionizing irradiation during early development led to selective elimination (by apoptosis) of weakened cells in several tissues that in turn delayed aging during the later stages of life. We also characterized the remote effects of low doze irradiation on mice (apoptosis, genetics instability, senescence, lifespan). Several years ago, we initiated studies on the role of DNA repair, epigenetic regulation, xenobiotic detoxification, and cytokines on lifespan using Drosophila as a model system. As a part of a group of authors sequenced the genome and transcriptome of smallest lived mammal - a Brandt's bat. My lab is supported by grants from the Russian Basic Research Foundation and Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and previously received support, in the form of three grants, from President of Russian Federation in the program that funded leading young scientists. I am a Vice-President of the Syktyvkar Branch of Russian Gerontology Society, President of Komi branch of Vavilov Society of Geneticists and Breeders, member of the editorial boards of Aging (Impact Journals), Biogerontology (Springer), Frontiers in Genetics of Aging (Nature Publishing Group), Aging and disease, Genes&Cells, SM Journal of Food and Nutritional Disorders (SM Journals). Co-chair of the International Symposiums “Genetics of Aging and Longevity” and “«Biomedical Innovation For Healthy Longevity»”.
He is the author of more than 100 publications in the area of ecological genetics and radiation ecology.
