Maria Konovalenko, M.Sc.
is a molecular biophysicist and program coordinator for the
Science for Life Extension Foundation.
The main goal of the Science for Life Extension Foundation is to make radical life extension a global initiative. They integrate efforts in order to increase funding for research in regenerative medicine, gerontology, genetics, neuroscience, systems biology, and related sciences aimed at studying the mechanisms of aging and searching for methods to increase human longevity.
Maria authored Discovery in Salamanders Could Lead to Human Limb Regeneration, True DIY Biology: Man Designs and Produces Own Aortic Implant, Freezing without cryoprotectants, Artificial retinas see well enough to balance a pencil, Japanese firm develops robotic exoskeleton suit that helps people walk, The main result of the year The first regenerative medicine surgery in Russia, Stem cells used to grow functioning human intestine, Here is the Research Needed to Combat Aging, Stem cell therapy holds promise for epileptics, and Researchers jumpstart nerve fibers to reverse stroke damage.
Maria earned her Master’s degree in Molecular Biological Physics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 2009.
