8-10 April, 2020 | Moscow
Cell-based Research in Neuroscience
Welcome to the 3rd International CTERP Conference. The aim of this Conference is to meet and share experience, discuss advance achievements in cell-based research in cellular neuroscience, new solutions in developing, producing and implementing in practical medicine novel cell therapy approaches.

Novel neurotechnologies open new perspectives to cure cerebrosis basing on principles of personalized and regenerative medicine. These approaches, advances and challenges of translational activities will be discussed on the round table closing the conference.

Held in Moscow, Russia

  • In 1980 he defended his Ph.D. thesis, in 1990 he obtained his doctoral thesis
  • Since 1998, Professor. He is in charge of the Laboratory of Molecular Mechanisms of Immunity of the Institute of Molecular Biology, Russian Academy of Sciences. V. A. Engelhardt.

Russian biologist, an expert in molecular biology and genetics, immunology and biotechnology. One of the top 100 most cited Russian scientists.

He organized educational programs in Moscow on oncoimmunology and molecular immunology.
Made a major contribution to the development of domestic molecular biology, immunology and biomedicine. He and his school carried out pioneering work on the biology of cytokines, created unique animal models of human diseases, investigated the mechanisms of pathogenesis of a number of diseases at the molecular level, developed new approaches to biotherapy, including the creation of prototypes for new drugs.

In the 80 years, SA Nedospasov and colleagues were the first to molecularly clone the genes of the tumor necrosis factor family of cytokines, which are the mediators of immune processes. Based on these molecular clones, cytokine production strains have been created in our country, including TNF and human lymphotoxin, and then a panel of monoclonal antibodies that neutralize their activity. SA Nedospasov and colleagues created a unique panel of mouse lines with controlled deactivation of TNF, lymphotoxin and other mediators important for the development of the immune system. In these animals it became possible to model various human diseases - from autoimmune and infectious to oncological, to study the association of microbiota with inflammation, and also to practice biotherapy.

Published more than 200 articles, including in the leading international journals: Science, Nature, Immunity, Blood.

Member of the editorial boards of international and domestic journals: European Journal of Immunology, Journal of Inflammation, Immunology Letters, Molecular Biology, Russian Immunological Journal, Medical Immunology, Cytology.

Scientific interests:
  • mechanisms of innate immunity
  • physiology of cytokines
  • genetic knockout in mice and mouse models of human diseases
  • cancer antigens.

  • Investigator Award of the Institute of Cancer Research (USA, 1991)
  • Prize of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences (Germany, 2000)
  • The Helmholtz-Humboldt Prize (2005)
  • Elected a member of the European Academy (2010), the European Academy of Oncoimmunology (2012)
  • II Mechnikov Prize (2011) - For the cycle of scientific works "Molecular-cellular mechanisms of organization of human and mouse lymphoid organs" (jointly with AA Yarilin).
  • The State Prize of the Russian Federation (2015) - for a series of fundamental and applied works on the study of molecular mediators of immunity, including works on the creation of unique biomedical models.
  • Honorary Doctor of UNN. NN Lobachevsky (2016).
