Valery Petrenko's Biography

Valery Petrenko, Professor, Auburn University

Valery A. Petrenko, Professor in Auburn University; graduated from Moscow State University, U.S.S.R (1972); received PhD and D.Sc. degrees in chemistry from the Zelinski Institute of Organic Chemistry (1976) and Moscow State University (1988), Ranks of Senior Scientist (1984) and Professor in Bioorganic Chemistry and Molecular Biology (1992). He served as Senior Scientist (1977-1982), Laboratory Head (1982-1985), Associate Director of Research, Institute Director (1985-1989), Vice President of Research and Professor (1989-1993) in the Association “Vector” (Novosibirsk, Russia). In 1993 he joined the faculty of University of Missouri-Columbia as Visiting and Research Professor, and in 2000—the faculty of Auburn University as Professor. He is recipient (PI) of grants from the ARO, DARPA, NIH-NCI, Calvert Research, LLC, and AURIC. He is recipient of the Pfizer Animal Health Awards for Research Excellence (2006, 2011), Auburn University's Scholarship Incentive Award (2014), Auburn President's Outstanding Collaborative Units Award in Pharmaceutical Engineering (2014). He is member of National Academy of Inventors Chapter (2013), Auburn University Research Initiative in Cancer (AURIC), National Cancer Institute (NCI) Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer (2009) and Phi Zeta Honor Society of Veterinary Medicine. He published more than 146 peer reviewed journal articles, 4 book chapters and a book. His research interests include monitoring and detection of biological threats, diagnosis of infectious and cancer diseases and tumor targeting.

Development of phage engineering technology led to construction of a novel type of phage display libraries—collections of nanofiber materials with diverse molecular landscapes accommodated on the surface of phage particles. These new nanomaterials, called “landscape phage,” serve as a huge resource of diagnostic/detection probes and versatile construction materials for preparation of phage-functionalized biosensors. Landscape-phage-derived probes interact with biological threat agents and generate detectable signals as a part of robust and inexpensive molecular recognition interfaces introduced in mobile detection devices. The use of landscape-phage-based interfaces may greatly improve the sensitivity, selectivity, robustness, and longevity of these devices. My talk aims to attract the attention of chemical scientists and bioengineers seeking to develop functionalized materials and use them in different areas of bioscience, medicine, and engineering.
