E M B A R G O E D until: Tuesday, July 11, 2006, 4 pm
The tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and its role in inflammation and cancer is the focus of the research of the Russian immunologist Professor Sergei Nedospasov and his collaboration with the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) Berlin-Buch and the Deutsche Rheuma-Forschungszentrum Berlin. This collaboration with two German research institutions has been made possible through the Helmholtz-Humboldt Award, which was presented to Professor Nedospasov on July 11, 2006 in Berlin. The Prize is given by the Helmholtz Association of National Research Centres, of which the MDC is a member, and the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung. Professor Nedospasov heads a research group at the Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and is Professor at the A.N. Belozersky Institute of Physico-Chemical Biology at Moscow State University.
Together with Professor Hendrikus Granzier from Washington State University in Pullman, USA who will come to Berlin in September of this year, the MDC will host two winners of the Helmholtz-Humboldt Award. At the MDC, Professor Nedospasov will collaborate with the immunologist and cancer researcher Professor Thomas Blankenstein. At the Deutsche Rheuma-Forschungszentrum, he is currently setting up his own research group.

Sergei Nedospasov was born in Moscow in 1952. He studied physics and biophysics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and received his doctorate in 1980. . Afterwards, the Soviet Union still existed, he went to pursue postgraduate studies at the Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research (ISREC) in Lausannne, returning to Moscow in 1983.
