Biography

Prof. Yuri L. Lyubchenko received his PhD in Molecular Biophysics from the Moscow Institute Physics and Technology (Russia) during the period of 1969-1971. He also received D. Sc. degree in Molecular Biology from Institute of Molecular Genetics (Moscow, Russia) in 1989. Currently, he is Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE. Research of Lyubchenko focuses on understanding fundamental mechanisms underlying health and disease, which are key to developing new and more effective diagnostics and medications. This primarily basic research allows him not only identify new drug targets for small molecule drugs, it also leads to development of the tools and methods to discover novel approaches for diagnostic, treatment and disease prevention and to more rapidly determine their efficacy at the molecular level.
