Currently, Mikhail Blagosklonny is a professor of Oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Cancer has been seen to be the leading cause of death in all continents. This concept has attracted scientists from all walks of life to try and solve this problem by finding a cancer elusive treatment. As a scientist of Oncology, Mikhail Blagosklonny studies Cancer and Aging as he attempts to find a treatment for these two concepts. He has made numerous contributions towards finding an elusive treatment considering he is a specialist in treatment therapies and cancer biology. With his extensive research and academic background, Mikhail contributions in fighting cancer have some potential of being perfected to bring about cancer and aging treatment.

Mikhail Blagosklonny is responsible for authoring more than a hundred articles on the subjects of aging and cancer. He has also co-authored various research reviews and book chapters on both molecular and cellular biology of cancer cells considering their apoptosis, autophagy, and cycle. From his works cited he proposes the use of rapamycin, with the help of TOR signaling, to help in prolonging cell life in the human body. This is achieved through delaying autophagy, inhibiting apoptosis and promoting protein synthesis. He continues to argue that with the help of the TOR signaling regulation, cancer can be treated.
According to him, he believes it is possible to control aging and cancer, and he will one day be in a position of doing so. Check his LinkedIn profile to learn more.
