Utkur Mirsaidov holds a PhD in Physics from the University of Texas at Austin. Author of 13 scientific publications in biophysics. Dr. Mirsaidov served as Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Delivered invited lectures and talks at major scientific conferences in biophysics. His research interests include plasmid construction (design of biological networks, restriction, ligation, cloning, gel extraction), PCR, handling bacteria and cells, live cell microscopy, fabrication of synthetic nanopores, design of systems for cantilever-based magnetometry and magnetic resonance imaging, and design of fiber-optic interferometer.
Sergey Polyakov, PhD
Sergey Polyakov holds a PhD in Space Technology and a MS in Engineering Physics.
Fluent in 6 languages, both spoken and written. Author of more than 50 scientific publications in space technology, life support systems, chemical engineering,
and environmental science. Reviewer for the U.S. Civilian Research and Development Foundation (CRDF) and scholarly journals.
He is best known for his R&D in space technology and chemical engineering including the
theoretical and experimental studies of the performance of life support systems (LSS)
for Soviet interplanetary spaceships and the MIR and ALPHA orbital stations using a ground-based Martian expedition
real-scaled simulator in the Institute for Biomedical Problems (Russian Space Agency Center). Developed an integrated approach
to the design of air revitalization and water reclamation/conditioning system from human wastes on the basis of
energy-efficient membrane and depth-filtration methods (membrane evaporation, ultra/micro filtration, reverse osmosis).
