Andrei G. Pakhomov received his M.S. degree in animal and human physiology from Moscow State University in 1982, and a Ph.D. in radiation biology from the Medical Radiology Research Center in Obninsk, Russia, in 1989.
Upon receiving a Resident Research Associateship Award from the National Research Council in 1994, he moved to the US to explore bioeffects of extremely high-peak, low-average power microwave pulses at Brooks City-Base in San Antonio, TX. Currently he is a Research Associate Professor with the Frank Reidy Research Center for Bioelectrics of Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA). His current research is focused on cell membrane permeabilization by nanosecond-duration electric pulses, including biophysical mechanisms of pore formation and resealing, nanopore conductive properties, physiological consequences of nanoelectroporation, and its applications in biology and medicine. This research is supported by two active RO1 grants from NIH. Dr. Pakhomov is the principal author of over 100 publications and presentations, and since 2004 he has been an Associate Editor of Bioelectromagnetics.
