To ELENA ANDREEVNA'S ANNIVERSARY ROOT (to the 75 anniversary since birth)

In December, 2004 the scientist with a world name, to the founder of new scientific discipline - immunophysiology, to the head of Department of the general pathology and a pathophysiology of Research institute of experimental medicine of the Russian Academy of Medical Science, the academician of the Russian Academy of Medical Science, the doctor of medical sciences, to professor Elena Andreevna Korneva was 75 years old.

All creative activity of E.A. Korneva, since 1953, is connected with Institute of experimental medicine of the Russian Academy of Medical Science. Still in the sixties E.A. Korneva began the researches in the field of physiology of the immune system. It for the first time raised and studied a question of value of certain structures of a brain in regulation of functions of the immune system. The data obtained by E.A. Korneva were recognized as opening by the State Committee for opening and inventions. The set of the received results and also the concept of the organization of a multilevel system of neuro and humoral regulation of immunological processes offered E.A. Korneva in a complete organism were a basis for creation of the new, perspective scientific direction - immunophysiology (neuroimmunomodulations, psychoneuroimmunology) which recognized leader was E.A. Box Neva.

Transformation of this scientific direction into the new, intensively developing scientific discipline also is in many respects connected with a name of E.A. Korneva. Its monograph "Neurohumoral Providing Immune Homeostasis" (1978) generalizing results of the conducted researches in 1985 was transferred to the USA. With an entry in the USA of the book "Founders of Psychoneuroimmunology" (1986) E.A. Korneva was officially recognized as one of founders of this scientific discipline.

In 1986 E.A. Korneva was elected the corresponding member, and in 1997 - the full member of the Russian Academy of Medical Science.

E.A. Korneva is one of the largest organizers of science in our country. Since 1989 E.A. Korneva is the Chairman of the commission of Immunofiziologiya at Scientific Council of the Russian Academy of Medical Science on experimental and applied physiology.

In 2004 for outstanding merits in the field of a research of interaction of neuroendocrine and immune systems of an organism, work on the organization and promoting of science of E.A. Kornev it is awarded the gold medal of Presidium of the All-Russian scientific organization of immunologists.

Having gained wide international recognition as one of pioneers of researches in the field of physiology of the immune system, being one of founders of the International Scientific Organization across Neuroimmunomodulyation, E A. Korneva was repeatedly elected the Vice president of this Society and is the member of council of his directors. In 1993 - 1996 - she is a member of presidium of the International Society of Psychoneuroimmunology and the Honorary Director of Fund for Psychoneuroimmunology (USA). For many years E.A. Korneva was an associate editor of the international magazine "Brain, Behavior and Immunity" C of 1990 - the member of editorial board of the International magazine Neuroimmunomodulyation. E.A. Korneva is a member of editorial board of the Meditsinskaya Immunologiya magazine.

Within 20 years Elena Andreevna is the permanent chairman of the board of the St. Petersburg office of the All-Russian scientific organization of immunologists. Thanks to its energy and persistence the meetings of society are held monthly, at them the most burning issues of fundamental and applied immunology are discussed, graduate students make the first scientific reports, leading experts share the impressions about trips to the international immunological forums.

E.A. Korneva actively is engaged in pedagogical activity. For the first time in the country in 1987 it began to give a course of lectures on neuroimmunomodulation in St. Petersburg State University. Under its edition in 1993 there was the first-ever guide Immunofiziologiya.

The domestic school of sciences of immunophysiologists created by E.A. Korneva, is recognized as in ours a camp, and abroad. Her numerous pupils are employees and heads of large domestic and foreign Scientific Centers now.

Modern development of the line of scientific research of E.A. Korneva is characterized by more and more in-depth study of cellular and molecular mechanisms of regulation, violations and corrections of protective functions of an organism already at the receptor and alarm and genetic level of realization of neuro and immune interactions.

E.A. Korneva is an author more than 400 scientific works, including 6 monographs. E.A. The box Neva is the professional of the top skills who is causing deep respect of scientific community and being an example for imitation the growing-up scientific youth.

The editorial board of the Meditsinskaya Immunologiya magazine wishes to Elena Andreevna Korneva a lot more years of health and continuation of fruitful and bright scientific activity.
