Konstantine Agladze

Head of Biophysics of Excitable System Lab

Education
MIPT graduate of 1978, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (1983).
Professional experience
Head of Laboratory. Longtime staff member of the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow Oblast, Pushchino). Worked abroad since 2000 in a number of leading scientific research institutions in the USA and Japan (Florida State University, USA; University of North Texas Health Science Center, USA; Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, USA; George Washington University, USA; Kyoto University, Japan). Head of Laboratory at the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (Kyoto University, Japan) since 2008.
Academic Interests
K. Agladze's main scientific works deal with the biophysics of excitable media, as well as the theoretical and the experimental substantiation of low-voltage defibrillation. K. Agladze's works were the first to employ Belousov–Zhabotinsky reaction as a "chemical computer" and demonstrate the wave environment to be fitting for the purposes of image processing and optimization purposes. K. Agladze also heads the MIPT Nano-construction of Membrane Protein Complexes for Cellular Physiology Control Laboratory, which mainly specializes in cardiac tissue engineering research. One of the winners of the Russian Government's first Megagrant Tender in 2010. Author of more than 80 publications in peer-reviewed journals, including Nature and Science.
