Kondratyev Heads CSR Review Group
Dr. Alexei Kondratyev has been named new new chief of the Center for Scientific Review’s integrative, functional and cognitive neuroscience integrated review group. He has served as scientific review officer for CSR’s chronic dysfunction and integrative neurodegeneration study section.
Kondratyev will oversee 10 study sections that review NIH grant applications that cover a broad range of neuroscience research to advance knowledge of how the nervous system is organized and functions at an integrative, systems level.
He received his Ph.D. in chemistry from the Institute of Molecular Biology in Moscow and did postdoctoral training first at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and then in the department of radiation medicine, Georgetown University Medical Center.
Kondratyev later joined the faculty of Georgetown University, where he served as associate professor of pediatrics and pharmacology and headed the Laboratory of Pediatric Epilepsy Research.
His research focused on the molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration and neuroprotection, neuronal DNA damage and repair, neurotrophic factors, animal models of acute neuronal injury and the developmental effects of antiepileptic drugs.
