Aleksander Vasilievich Pronin was born in Moscow in 1953. In 1976, he completed a higher education program in the specialty of in the specialty of Human and Animal Biologist and Physiologist in the Lomonosov Moscow State University.
Since 1976 he has been working at the NF Gamaleya NITsEM of the Ministry of Health of Russia, he grew from Senior Laboratory Assistant to Deputy Director for Scientific Work. Since 1988 he is the Head of the Laboratory of Natural Immunity.
From August 2012 to February 2014, he held the position of Deputy Director of the Department of Analysis, Forecast of Healthcare Development and Medical Science.
In 1981 he defended his Ph.D. thesis on the topic: "Functional activity of immunocompetent cells in experimental infection with Mycoplasma arthritidis in rats", specializing in allergology and immunology (14.00.36), and in 1991 he defended his doctoral thesis on the topic: "Mitogenic factors of microorganisms and their role in the development of anti-infectious immunity "in the same specialty. In December 2001 A.V. Pronin was awarded the title of "Professor".
The area of his research interests is related to the problem of immunology of human and animal infectious diseases such as mycoplasmosis, legionellosis, brucellosis, listeriosis, bordetellosis, influenza, etc., and in the recent years he focuses on the development of new anti-infection immune response modifiers based on polyprenols and germanium organic compounds, studying their action mechanisms and development of the methodology for environmental well-being assessment.
With the direct participation of A.V. Pronin 10 new immunomodulating, antiviral, lipid-lowering drugs have been developed, they were tried in the non-clinical studies. One of them (Forteprene) in 2014 completed the 3rd phase of clinical stidy in medicine, the rest are widely used in veterinary medicine or are undergoing clinical studies.
A.V. Pronin is a co-author of over 300 scientific papers, 18 patents for inventions (7 of them are international). The patents relate to agents for the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases, correction of various pathological conditions using antiviral and immunomodulatory agents based on polyprenols, organogermanium compounds and a complex preparation including immunomodulating and biostimulating components, as well as agents for the prevention and treatment of dyslipidemias.
A.V. Pronin is acting as the Chairman of the "Theoretical and Applied Infectious Immunology" task group, for a long time he worked in the Commission on Immunobiological and Bacterial Preparations of the Pharmacopoeial Committee, he is a member of the Interdepartmental Scientific Council, Academic Council of the Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology, Deputy Chairman of the Specialized Academic Council for the Defense of Candidate and Doctoral Theses at the Gamaleya Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology. 6 dissertations (5 candidate and 1 doctoral papers) were defended with A.V. Pronin acting as scientific adviser.
