Summary

Associate Professor at the Department of Molecular Medicine of University of South Florida, College of Medicine. Leading Scientist at the Institute for Biological Instrumentation, Russian Academy of Sciences.

Dr. Vladimir N. Uversky received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Physics from Leningrad State University in Russia in 1986. He then completed his Ph.D. degree in Physics and Mathematics (field of study -Biophysics) at the Moscow Institute of Technical Physics in 1991 and the Doctor of Sciences (D.Sc.) degree in Physics and Mathematics (field of study - Biophysics) at the Institute Experimental and Theoretical Biophysics of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1998.
Dr. Uversky is the author or co-author of more than 550 peer-reviewed publications (cited more than 28,000 times), 65 book chapters, the editor of 20 scientific books and 5 book series, and more than 15 journals. His major research interests are related to protein structure, folding, misfolding and non-folding.

Our scientific interests are broadly defined as everything related to protein folding, misfolding and non-folding. However, the passion is definitely the field of protein non-folding , which is related to the discovery of intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs), analysis of their abundance in nature, characterization of their exceptional structural and functional plasticity, understanding of their vital roles in various biological processes, and establishing their involvement in the pathogenesis of multiple human diseases. These and related aspects of IDPs are analyzed by a combination of a wide spectrum of computational, bioinformatics, and experimental approaches of modern protein biophysics. Due to the high abundance of IDPs in various proteomes, the exceptional structural and functional plasticity of these proteins, and their intimate relations to the maladies' pathogenesis, it is almost impossible to find an area of protein science where IDPs would not play a noticeable role.
