On November 4, 2016, at the age of 87, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences S.M. Klimenko passed away after a serious long illness.
Sergei Minovich Klimenko was a well-known scientist in the field of virology, the author of over 200 scientific papers, a number of patents and monographs, was born in 1929 in Moscow.
Scientific research of S.M. Klimenko was devoted to ultrastructural studies of viruses pathogenic for humans and the analysis of their reproduction in infected cells and tissues. His studies on the problems of the structural organization of virions of a number of arboviruses, influenza and parainfluenza viruses, human immunodeficiency viruses, as well as bacteriophages and nucleic acids laid the foundation for a new direction, which can be called the molecular-structural characteristic of virions. The results of these studies have been published in two monographs and numerous articles. At the same time, S.M. Klimenko carefully studied the morphogenesis of these viruses, i.e. the processes of entry, the stages of development of virions in the cell up to the exit of virions from the collapsing cells into the surrounding space. Sergey Minovich is the creator of the laboratory of the structure and morphogenesis of viruses and the founder of the scientific school, which has been active in the Russian Federation for over 50 years, and some of its representatives have also worked abroad. 11 candidate and three doctoral dissertations were defended under his scientific supervision. S.M. Klimenko worked for many years in laboratories in the USA, France, Switzerland and actively contacted leading foreign experts - Nobel Prize laureates W. Stanley, D. Gaidushek, J. Pallade, Professor V. Bernard.
S.M. Klimenko’s scientific activity began at the 2nd Medical Institute (Faculty of General Medicine), where he entered in 1947. At the Department of Pathological Physiology, he studied the effect of prolonged use of penicillin on the secretion of gastric juice. Data on the increase in gastric acidity were reported at the 2nd All-Union Conference of Student Societies (Moscow, 1952). Having defended his Ph.D. thesis under the supervision of Academician V.D. Timakov, Sergei Minovich went to work at the D.I. Ivanovsky Institute of Virology. And so began the 58-year scientific activity of this researcher within the walls of this institute. In 1959, he headed the work on electron microscopy, moving to the laboratory of viral morphogenesis. In 1970 he defended his doctoral dissertation, and from 1987 to 2010 he headed the Department of Molecular Virology and held the position of Deputy Director of the Institute for Research. In 1992, the scientific activity of S.M. Klimenko was awarded the RAMS prize named after D.I. Ivanovsky. In 1999, as part of a team of authors headed by Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences D.K.Lvov, S.M. Klimenko was awarded the State Prize of the Russian Federation for his work on the study of arboviruses.
Sergey Minovich was a member of the Editorial Boards of the "Problems of Virology" and "Bulletin of Experimental Biology and Medicine" journals and for a long time was a member of the Expert Council of the Higher Attestation Commission on Epidemiology, Microbiology and Virology.
Sergei Minovich Klimenko was a benevolent, attentive and responsive person who enjoyed the well-deserved recognition in the scientific world and sincere love of the Institute's staff.
