1. Introduction

Alexander O. Shpakov is a Professor of Biochemistry at the I.M. Sechenov Institute of Evolutionary Physiology and Biochemistry (IEPB), Russian Academy of Sciences, in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. He was born in 1963 at Leningrad in Russia. He received his Master of Science degree in Bioorganic Chemistry in 1987 from the Leningrad State University, Russia, and his PhD degree in Biochemistry in 1996 from the I.M. Sechenov IEPB. Currently he heads the Laboratory of Molecular Endocrinology and Neurochemistry at the I.M. Sechenov IEPB. He is an author of more than 430 research papers and reviews in reputed international and Russian journals and has published 10 monographs and 19 book chapters. His current research interests include: (i) the study of functional state of hormonal signaling systems in the endocrine and metabolic diseases, (ii) the biochemistry and physiology of reproductive system and hypothalamo-pituitary-thyroid axis in norm and in the endocrine and metabolic diseases, (iii) the development of the peptide strategy based on GPCR-peptides and their lipophilic derivatives, (iv) the development of low-molecular weight regulators of the receptors of pituitary glycoprotein hormones; (v) the structural-functional organization and evolution of the signaling systems of lower eukaryotes and bacteria, and others.
