Professor Tadeusz Malinski, Ph.D.; Dr.h.c.m.

Marvin & Ann Dilley White Chair and Distinguished Professor of Ohio University, USA

Dr. Malinski is the Marvin & Ann Dilley White Chair and Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Sciences. Professor Malinski is a world-renowned scientist and inventor. Born in Srem, Poland, he received his MS from Adam Mickiewicz University of Poznan, and went on to receive his Ph.D. from the Poznan University of Technology. After that he was a visiting scholar at the University of Michigan and a professor at the University of Houston and Oakland University. His research is interdisciplinary in the areas of biochemistry, biotechnology, and is one of the pioneers of a new field of medicine – nanomedicine. He was first in the world to measure, with nanosensors, nitric oxide (which is a vital molecule in regulating the cardiovascular system and the brain) concentration in single cells and neurons.

His ground-breaking discovery of the regulatory role of nitric oxide in the beating heart and the mechanism of dysfunction of nitric oxide synthase are historical contributions to world science. The dysfunction of nitric oxide synthase is a common denominator of several diseases of modern civilization heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, atherosclerosis, aging, obesity, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Lou Gehrig’s disease and stroke. Professor T. Malinski developed new systems for early diagnosis of cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, a new system of heart preservation for transplantation, and biological modifications of prosthetic systems. Professor Malinski’s work appears in nearly 400 publications and has been cited more than 11,000 times. The H-factor (Hirsch index score) is more than 50.

He has received approximately 35 Awards and Distinctions among others: 5 Doctor Honoris Causa awards, Maria Curie Medal, the Grande Medaille d’Or (Grand Gold Medal) in medicine from the Society of Arts-Sciences-Letters (Paris, France), and the International College of Cardiology's Albrecht Fleckenstein Award for research in cardiology. He was alsonominated for the Albert Einstein Medal of Science.
