HeadPrecarpathian National UniversityUkraine

Dr. Volodymyr I. Lushchak graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University (Soviet Union) in 1982. In 1986 he defended Ph.D. and in 2002 D.Sc. dissertations, and in 2004 obtained full professor title. In 1987-1998 he worked in Southern Seas Biology Institute of Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, and in 1998 joined Vassyl Stefanyk Precarpathian National University in Ivano-Frankivsk (Ukraine), where currently he is a head of Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology. He also worked at Universities of Canada, Brazil, United Kingdom, Finland, Poland, Sweden and Germany. The scientific interests of Dr. Lushchak are related to effects of environmental conditions and molecular aspects of adaptive responses in bacteria, fungi, plants and animals. Although interested in general aspects of metabolism regulation, his interests are mainly focused on the homeostasis of reactive species of oxygen, nitrogen and carbon.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Volodymyr Lushchak

Since the discovery of free radicals in biological systems researchers have been highly interested in their interaction with biological molecules. Denoted in 1980, and due to fruitful results and ideas, oxidative stress is now appreciated by both basic and applied scientists as an enhanced steady state level of reactive oxygen species with wide range of biological effects. This book covers a wide range of aspects and issues related to the field of oxidative stress. The association between generation and elimination of reactive species and effects of oxidative stress are also addressed, as well as summaries of recent works on the signaling role of reactive species in eukaryotic organisms. The readers will gain an overview of our current understanding of homeostasis of reactive species and cellular processes they are involved in, as well as useful resources for further reading.
