Sergey Nikolaevich Cherenkevich (b. 20.07, 1942, v. Polynichitsy, Baranovichi district, Brest region), a scientist in the field of cell biophysics, cell engineering, cell informatics. Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (2009; corresponding member since 2004), Doctor of Biological Sciences (1989), Professor (1990). Excellence in Education of the Republic of Belarus (1999).
Works in the field of cell biophysics, cell engineering, cell informatics, neuroinformatics. He proposed and proved a new scientific concept on the participation of intracellular redox factors in maintaining cell homeostasis. Theoretically and experimentally substantiated the new parameters for the quantitative description of the physicochemical parameters of the redox state of the cell - the effective redox potential and redox buffer capacity. He formulated and substantiated a number of new scientific provisions of cellular informatics, including the provision on the signaling role of hydrogen peroxide. He developed a number of principles for creating new computing devices such as neuroprocessors using ensembles of living neurons and semiconductor electronic devices. Established a new law of learning biological neural networks. Investigated the mechanisms of cell functioning in changing physicochemical conditions, including under extreme environmental conditions. Developed a number of methods for diagnosing diseases and testing pharmacological drugs.
Author of more than 550 scientific papers, including 5 monographs and 5 textbooks, 26 patents and copyright certificates.
State Prize of the Republic of Belarus in 2000 for the series of works "Biophysical mechanisms of the functional response of cells".
Awarded with a medal.
