With the great pleasure we would like to communicate that Prof. Suresh I.S Rattan from Aarhus University has been awarded  a Visiting Professorship at Institute of Biotechnology, Rzeszow University.

Prof. Suresh I Rattan is a famous cell biologist and a biogerontologist.

Prof. Suresh Rattan's major intellectual contribution in gerontology is the formulation of the concepts of essential lifespan and virtual gerontogenes regarding the nature of genes involved in ageing that real gerontogenes do not exist. Additionally, in the area of ageing modulation, Suresh Rattan is credited with the sole inventorship for discovering the anti-ageing effects of kinetin and zeatin in human skin cells; and these compounds are being used in several skin-care cosmetics throughout the world, for example Valeant product Kinerase. His areas of expertise include ageing, anti-ageing and healthy ageing of human cells, specially fibroblasts, keratinocytes, osteoblasts, and bone marrow stem cells. His current research focuses on the beneficial effects of mild stress, Hormesis, and discovering hormetins (a new category of natural and synthetic compounds which bring about their beneficial effects through hormesis) for slowing down ageing and improving the quality of life in old age. The first skincare product to come out of the theory of hormesis is the Vaxin for Youth from Givenchy. He has also put forward the terms for the science and study of hormesis, and "hormetin" for any condition that can bring about hormesis "hormetics".

He is the founding Editor-in-Chief of Biogerontology, a leading peer reviewed journal in the field of ageing. His name has been included in Marquis Who's Who in the World (from 1993); Marquis Who's Who in Medicine and Healthcare (from 1998); and International Directory of Distinguished Leadership (from 1998). He was a member of the World Economic Forum's Global Agenda Council on Gerontology (2008–2009).

He is an author of over 230 research papers, review articles, book chapters. His h-index is 51 with over 8700 citations. He is  an author /co-author of 14 patents granted in USA, Argentina, Japan, New Zealand and many other countries.

He is also an author of three popular science and general educational books for children: E=GMC2 formlen for evig ungdom (E =GMC2, the formula for eternal youth – a popular science book in Danish for school and college students, with accompanying CD ROM; Malling Beck Publishers, Copenhagen); awarded the Education Prize 2003, from the Danish Education Ministry. “Where’s Baba Gone?” a story-based book on the science and philosophy of life, ageing and death, in Punjabi and English; Published in India; 1997, 2002, 2009; in English 1999, 2002, 2011; in Hindi (2012); in Polish 2009 (Dokąd Odchodzisz? translated by Monika Kowaleczko-Szumowska) as an EU-supported project on Science and Humanities, (ACUME2); in Romanian in Romanian (UNDE SA-DUS BABA; 2012) and ALDER (AGE) – in Danish, for general public (2017).

 

During his stay at University of Rzeszów, Prof Suresh I Rattan will conduct seminars and workshop with biotechnology students on Medical biotechnology and Biogerontology: Mechanisms and Interventions as well as perform some research experiments with Department of Genetics team.
