Head, Department of Biophysics, Dubna University

E.A. Krasavin, b. 1942, doctor by education, began his scientific career in 1968 when he entered a postgraduate programme at the Institute of Medical and Biological Problems (IMBP), the USSR Ministry of Health, in the specialty Radiobiology. In 1971 ahead of time he defended a thesis for the academic degree of Candidate of Medical Sciences, which was concerned with the modification of the biological effect of accelerated heavy ions. Up to 1980, E.A. Krasavin worked at IMBP; in 1980, he was invited to JINR to manage research into the radiobiology of heavy charged particles. In 1985, he defended a thesis for the academic degree of Doctor of Biological Sciences. The thesis topic was Mechanisms Defining Difference in Biological Effectiveness of Radiation with Different Physical Characteristics. In 1990, E. A. Krasavin was conferred the title of Professor. Also in 1989, the Department of Biophysics was established at the Laboratory of Nuclear Problems, JINR, under his leadership. In 1995, the Department was transformed into the Department of Radiation and Radiobiological Research, JINR. In 2005, on E.A. Krasavin's initiative, a new Laboratory the eighth one was established at JINR for the first time in 25 years: the Laboratory of Radiation Biology (equal to an institute according to the ranking by the Russian Academy of Sciences). E.A. Krasavin authored more than 250 scientific papers and two monographs on the radiobiology of accelerated heavy ions. Under his supervision, three Candidate's (Ph.D.) and 14 Doctor's (the advanced doctoral degree) theses were defended. Since 1998, Prof. E.A. Krasavin has been Head of the Department of Biophysics, which was established on his initiative at Dubna University. The Department turns out specialists in radiation biology; its graduates work successfully in Russia, Europe, and the U.S.

Gennady Nikolaevich TIMOSHENKO

Deputy Director for Science, Laboratory of Radiation Biology
Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor.

G.N. Timoshenko graduated from Moscow Engineering Physics Institute in 1971 and has been working since then at JINR. He specializes in radiation protection physics and dosimetry and has significant experience in the organization of radiation monitoring of accelerators. He performed a great volume of experimental studies of ionizing radiation fields at JINR's accelerators (in particular, secondary radiation generated around thick targets irradiated by high-energy particle beams and scattered radiation beyond accelerator shielding). G.N. Timoshenko proposed various new techniques and a number of instruments for radiation measurements. He also takes part in other scientific projects, in particular, in the Moon and Mars surface studies by nuclear spectroscopy techniques and in radioactive waste transmutation research. In 1986, G.N. Timoshenko defended a Candidate's (Ph.D.) thesis in experimental physics; in 2005, a Doctor's (the advanced doctoral degree) thesis in the topic Nucleon Radiometry in Radiation Fields Generated by Heavy Charged Particle Accelerators. In 1986, he participated in the Chernobyl accident elimination. In 1996, he was appointed Scientific Secretary of the Department of Radiation and Radiobiological Research, JINR; since 2005, he has been Deputy Director of the Laboratory of Radiation Biology, JINR. G.N. Timoshenko authored 80 scientific publications. He is a Professor at Dubna University.

Atanaska Khristova YAGOVA

Deputy Director for Science, Laboratory of Radiation Biology
Candidate of Medical Sciences

A.Kh. Yagova, a citizen of Bulgaria, a doctor by education, was born on 1 January 1948 in Sofia. In 1973, she graduated from Mechnikov State Medical Academy in St. Petersburg (Russia, then the Soviet Union). Since 1975, she has been working at the National Center for Radiobiology and Radiation Protection (NCRRP) in Sofia, Bulgaria. In 1979, A.Kh. Yagova defended a Candidate of Medical Sciences thesis on the mutagenic and teratogenic effects of tritium (tritium water) in rats. Until 1991, she worked as a scientist at the Radiation Genetics Department of the NCRRP and was qualified in the specialty of radiobiology. In 1992 2010, she headed the Radiation Epidemiology Department at the NCRRP and was qualified in the specialty of radiation hygiene. In 2010, A.Kh. Yagova was assigned to work at the LRB, JINR. Her scientific interests include research on the regularities in the biological effect of ionizing radiation; the effect of a number of radionuclides on somatic and generative cells of mammals; chromosome aberrations in peripheral human blood lymphocytes and their biological consequences; and the incidence rate of oncological diseases in the nuclear industry and medical personnel and in the population of some regions of Bulgaria after the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant disaster. A.Kh. Yagova authored 59 scientific publications. Under her supervision, a Candidate's dissertation in nuclear epidemiology was defended. She taught courses of radiobiology and radiation hygiene at the Medical College and Medical University in Sofia, Bulgaria.
