Dr Evgeny Petrov is currently a Senior Researcher at National Research Tomsk State University, Russia, where his research is focused on using xenon in dermatology and cosmetology and development of transdermal therapeutic systems using xenon. He received his Masters and PhD form Siberian State Medical University (Department of Biophysics, Tomsk, Russia), where he studied how intracellular secondary messengers mediate regulatory mechanisms of epithelium-derived relaxation in tracheal smooth muscles. He has been holding a Medical Scientist position at Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute (Mechanosensory Biophysics Laboratory), where he has been studying the effects of static magnetic field, high hydrostatic pressure on artificial membranes and bacterial mechanosensitive ion channels. Dr Petrov has been a Research Officer at University of Queensland (School of Biomedical Sciences) and The University of Western Australia and a Postdoc Fellowship at the University of California at Davis (Center for Neuroscience, Department of Otolaryngology, USA). He has numerous publications as first author and co-author in prestigious peer reviewed journals. He as well is an invited reviewer at iConcept Press, has held a Biophysical Society, Australian Society for Biophysics membership.
Evgeny Petrov Research Interests are Electrophysiology, ion channels reconstitution, artificial biomembranes, membrane biophysics, patch-clamp techniques, xenon in experimental dermatology
