Leonid Margolis's Biography

Leonid Margolis, Head, Section of Intercellular Interactions, Eunice Kennedy-Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, NIH

Leonid Margolis Ph.D. DSc. graduated from Lomonosov University, Moscow with degrees in mathematics and biology. He received a Ph.D. in Oncology and an advanced degree of Doctor of Science in Biophysics. In 1991, he was elected a member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences. Dr. Margolis worked as a Visiting Professor at the University of San Diego, University of Stuttgart, and Kings College, London. In 1994 he was selected to be a Fogarty Scholar-in-Residence at NIH. He joined NICHD in 1995 and is Chief of the Section of Intercellular Interactions, within the Program in Physical Biology. He developed a system of ex vivo human lymphoid tissues through which he and others investigated critical mechanisms of tissue pathogenesis of HIV-1 and other viruses under controlled laboratory conditions. The experimental tissue systems developed by Dr. Margolis and his team are widely used as platforms for the study of HIV pathogenesis and for testing antivirals. Currently, his research is focused on inter-viral interactions in human tissues, the transmission of HIV-1 and herpesviruses, and the development of new antivirals, in particular microbicides. Dr. Margolis has received several NIH Director’s Awards, is involved in various international collaborative activities, and is an Adjunct Scientist of MSU and the Ilia University of the Republic of Georgia.

Extracellular vesicles play an important role in human immuno-modulation mediated by cytokines both in normal condition and in pathologies. We found that both myocardial infarction and in HIV-1 infection extracellular vesicles are associated with immune activation, an important driver of the disease.
