Valery A. Petrenko
A. Petrenko, Professor in the Department of Pathobiology at
Auburn University; graduated
Moscow State University,
U.S.S.R (1972); received PhD and D.Sc. degrees in chemistry from the
Zelinski Institute of Organic
Chemistry (1976) and Moscow State University, U.S.S.R (1988), Honor Ranks of Senior Scientist in Bioorganic Chemistry (1984) and Professor in Molecular Biology
(1992) from the Supreme Attestation Committee of the U.S.S.R. His Ph.D. research
focused on the synthesis of O-specific antigens of Salmonella, and D.Sc.
directed engineering of DNA and proteins. In
1977 he moved to Novosibirsk and worked as Junior and Senior Scientist
(1977-1982), Laboratory Head (1982-1985), Associate Director for Research (1985-1989), Director of Institute,
Vice President for Research and Professor (1989-1993) in
(Novosibirsk, Russia). In 1993 he joined the
faculty of University of
Missouri-Columbia as Visiting Professor and Research Professor, and in
2000 - Auburn University as Professor and Graduate Faculty (2001). In
Auburn Dr. Petrenko established a
research program focused on development of diagnostic and therapeutic probes using
phage display and phage nanobiotechnology. Dr. Petrenko is recipient (PI) of
grants from the Army Research
Institute of Health,
Calvert Research LLC,
and Auburn University, and CoPI in several collaborative grants. He is recipient of the Pfizer Animal Health Awards
for Research Excellence (2006, 2011), Auburn University's Scholarship Incentive
Award (2014), Auburn President's Outstanding Collaborative Units Award in
Pharmaceutical Engineering. He is
National Academy of Inventors Chapter (2013),
Auburn University Research Initiative in Cancer (AURIC), National Cancer
Institute (NCI) Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer (2009) and Phi Zeta Honor Society of
Veterinary Medicine, included in
"Who's Who in Medicine and Healthcare", "Who's Who in America" 2011 (65th Edition),
is Who in the World" (15th Edition). and "Who's Who in Science and
Engineering" 2011-2012 (11th Edition).
- Targeted drug/gene delivery
- Diagnosis of infectious diseases and cancer
- Monitoring and detection of biological threats
To attack these
problems, Professor Petrenko employs methods of phage display and phage nanobiotechnology
developed by his group.
The phage model is a gift from Dr.
Gregory P. Kishchenko.
