Eprintsev Alexander Trofimovich, born 24 January, 1954 in the city of Rossosh, Rossoshansky District, Voronezh Oblast, Russia. Graduated from Voronezh State University, Faculty of Biology and Soil Science (at the present time – Faculty of Medicine and Biology), with a specialty in Biology, and specialization in Plant Physiology and Biochemistry, in the city of Voronezh, Voronezh Oblast, Russia (1977). Candidate (PhD, 1982) and Doctor (DSc, 1995) of Biological Sciences in Plant Physiology. DSc thesis: «Malatdegidrogenaznaya i Akonitaznaya Fermentnye Sistemy Vysshikh Rasteniy: Fiziologo-Biokhimicheskaya Kharakteristika, Regulyatsiya i Rol’ v Adaptatsii k Faktoram Vneshney Sredy» (Malate Dehydrogenase and Aconitase Enzyme Systems of Higher Plants: Physiological and Biochemical Characteristics, Regulation and Role in Adaptation to Environmental Factors), Voronezh, Voronezh St. Univ., 1995 (in Russian). Professor in Plant Physiology and Biochemistry (1996), the Soros Associate Professor (1996, 1997), Soros Professor (2000, 2001), the Honored Scientist of the Russian Federation (2010). Head for the Department of Biochemistry and Physiology of Cell, Faculty of Medicine and Biology, Voronezh State University, in the city of Voronezh, Voronezh Oblast, Russia (since 1997 to present time). The founder of new scientific direction – the metabolic mechanisms of adaptive response of the organism. Examined the role of the glyoxylate cycle and the citric acid cycle in the adaptation of plants, animals and micro-organisms to the changing conditions of internal and external environment, revealed a universal role in this process glyoxylate way. Research interests in identification of the role of the isoenzymes in the switching of metabolic fluxes, causing the body's adaptation to extreme factors. It has been shown that one of the effective mechanisms of adaptive reactions of cellular metabolism is the regulation of gene expression of enzymes of the Krebs cycle and the glyoxylate way. PI and Coordinator for a numerous international research projects related to biochemistry and physiology of plants and animals. Supervised 26 PhD students. Author and co-author more than 430 scientific publications, including 10 books.
