Mikhail Blagosklonny is a well-known name in the medical field for the contribution that he has had to the field of oncology. By profession, he is a scientist and researcher who has been working in the field of oncology since the start of his career. He began working there soon out of medical school. His first job as a researcher was working for a company known as Ordway. Ordway was an organization that provided researchers with the resources to be able to find more viable treatments for cancer. Since this was exactly the field that Mikhail Blagosklonny was interested in, he shined brilliantly and made quite a few remarkable discoveries during his time there. His research there has been implemented by doctors all over the world. He has given hope to thousands of people who now have a better course of treatment for their cancers. If there is anyone who knows the field of oncology well enough, it has to be Mikhail Blagosklonny.
Mikhail Blagosklonny has always seen the teaching profession as a way to help society and science. While he was working at Ordway, he also started giving lectures on oncology at the New York Medical College. He was seen as one of the most brilliant teachers there. He imparted his knowledge to numerous students who came there to enter the field of oncology and make a difference to people’s lives. His teachings inspired his students to enter into research to help find a cancer cure for a disease that causes so many people to lose their lives.Mikhail Blagosklonny has always been inclined to research and started being interested in oncology very early on in his life. Halfway through his career, Mikhail Blagosklonny made an astonishing discovery that cemented his name in the medical field. While he was researching on the treatments that doctors were at the time giving patients, he came across a chemical called Rapamycin.
This was one of the main ingredients in the medications that doctors were giving people with cancer. His research pointed towards the fact that Rapamycin could be used to increase the life expectancy of people. This was seen as revolutionary because of how little progress was being made in that sector. He then decided to focus on this to give life to a whole new field within the medical and research profession. His research has made way for other researchers, pointing them in a direction that could help potentially one day help improve the life expectancy of people through a simple drug.Even though he stumbled upon something great outside the world of oncology, he has not stopped researching about oncology. Today, he no longer teaches at the New York Medical College, but is, in fact, the head of the oncological department at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute. He is considered to be one of the most revered teachers at the institute and imparts his knowledge and experiences to the students who come there to be oncologists and maybe even oncological researchers.
