Mikhail’s research interest includes many things. Some of those things are: Biogerontology, which is the underlying mechanisms of aging, anti-aging drugs, cancer, and targeted cancer therapies that guard the healthy cells against being damaged.
Dr. Blagosklonny is the editor-in-chief of Oncotarget and Cell Cycle and the associate editor of Cancer Biology and Therapy. He is also in the Cell Death and Differentiation editorial board.His hypothesis regarding TOR Signaling potential role in cancer and aging is that the common cancer fighting drug called Rapamycin can be used to extend a person’s life. He is also one of the most passionate advocates for this drug in longevity research. In one of his research endeavors, he tested out a drug called Everolimus, which is a drug that is very comparable to Rapamycin. He found that this drug was actually shown to improve immunity in older humans. This was groundbreaking research and a huge win for Mikhail.
He has so many different types of research that he does. Some of those are: tumor suppressors, cell cycle, and mitosis. Along with all of this, he is also the author of Aging Hyperfunction Theory.
