Mikhail Blagosklonny mainly majors on cancer and aging as a scientist. He studies revolved around internal medicine. At the Ph.D. level, cardiology and medicine were also his primary areas of focus at First Pavlov State Medical University located at St Petersburg. At the New York medical college he served as a professor, a position he exited to join Ordway research institute up to 2009. He later joined Roswell park cancer research institute.
Graft rejection is always prevented by a drug the name Rapamycin. The drug has several other uses such as lung disease treatment. The drug also goes by a common name of Rapamune. It is also capable of treating cancer. Mikhail Blagosklonny who focuses mostly on cancer has always put stress on the use of this drug to tone the aging process and low human to live longer. One of the reasons for him being vocal about this drug is because it can suppress immunity preventing graft rejection during organ transplant while still exhibiting low toxicity levels hence not affecting the kidney. Another advantage is that the drug treats hemolytic- uremic- syndrome where it can prevent the new kidney from also getting infected as opposed to taking calcium inhibitors.

Other treatment application of this drug includes cancer treatment with its capability to boost the immune response against the growing cancer cells. It also promotes regression of tumors. That is why the drug is widely used to fight cancer in patients with transplanted organs. Mikhail Blagosklonny has concentrated research on how the drug can be used to prolong human life with his tests subjects being mice. By using the drug on old mice, he has been able to prove that the drug improves the ability of the mice to fight tuberculosis. The drugs test on elderly humans has also shown that it enhances the immune system. Dr. Mikhail Blagosklonny though cannot currently conclude that Rapamycin prolongs human life until further tests are completed.
Mikhail Blagosklonny is not just a professor but also a philanthropist, and that’s why he focuses on enhancing human life by researching the best possible treatment methods. His interests, of course, are on the field of cancer and human aging. He wants to understand why aging is always accompanied by cancer. He has made sure to put an effort on researching on this field to enhance the field of oncology. Other than just investigating Mikhail Blagosklonny is also raising the next generation of researchers in the field of oncology by impacting knowledge on them.
Mikhail Blagosklonny decision to research on cancer and aging has attracted attention worldwide. He wants to find ways of treating cancer efficiently while still making it cheap for an average person. He looks forward to discovering ways in which cancer cells can be destroyed without interference with the healthy body cells which are usually necessary for the recovering patient. Mikhail Blagosklonny has done a tremendous job in this area of research, and he hopes the results of the study will be a source of inspiration to all researchers around the world to carry the mantle and complete his work.
