Personal profile

Professor Pogorelov received a Diploma in Biomedical Engineering from Bauman Moscow State Technical University in 1995, an M.S. in Mathematics in 1996, and a Ph.D. in Chemical Physics in 2006 (with Zan Luthey-Schulten), both from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. From 2006 to 2009 he was a postdoctoral research associate in Chemistry Department (with Todd Martinez) and from 2009 to 2012 he was a postdoctoral research associate at the Beckman Institute (with Emad Tajkhorshid) and a Research Scientist at the School of Chemical Sciences. In 2012 he was appointed a Research Assistant Professor and a Senior Research Scientist in charge of scientific computing, where he advises and collaborates with the School’s researchers in the areas of advanced computational chemistry.

Professional Information

Physical Chemistry of Complex Cellular Environments

We are physicists, chemists, biologists, and computer scientists, who address pressing questions in molecular biology of the cell signaling  in health and disease. We develop computational methods and workflows by combining frameworks of molecular dynamics, quantum chemistry, and molecular evolution with multi-resolution experimental data. Current emphasis is on functional lipids in membrane-associated phenomena, protein folding and interactions in complex environments, and plasma membrane cell signaling.
