Evgeny Dmitrievich Beloenko (09.11.1947, Murmansk – 08.12.2006), a scientist in the field of traumatology and orthopedics, arthrology and biotribology. Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (2003; corresponding member since 2000). Doctor of Medical Sciences (1992), Professor (2001). Honored Doctor of the Republic of Belarus (1998).
The main scientific works of fundamental and applied importance are devoted to the substantiation and development of new methods of diagnosis and surgical treatment (arthroscopic microsurgery, joint replacement, osteosynthesis, reconstructive surgery) of rheumatic orthopedic diseases, fractures and sports injury of the joints, research into the mechanisms and nature of low friction of articular cartilage. Established a previously unknown property of the synovial environment to ensure high antifriction of cartilage in the joints due to the liquid-crystalline state of the synovial fluid and the presence of mesogenic cholesterol compounds in it. Developed new drugs - modifiers of the properties of synovial fluid, technologies for producing liquid crystal biosubstantsii for their manufacture, methods of therapy of articular pathology with their use, tribometric equipment and methods for studying natural and artificial lubricating media, antifriction polymeric materials for medicine.
Author of more than 200 scientific papers, including 2 monographs, 21 inventions.
