Curriculum Vitae of Professor Igor Resnick, MD, PhD
Born on the 15th of May 1952 in the city of Odessa, Ukraine. Graduated with honors from the Medical Institute of Docenk, Odessa in 1975. Worked in the Institute of pediatrics in the Academy of Medical Sciences of the Soviet Union (Moscow) from 1976 to 1993. Obtained a specialty in pediatrics in 1978. Defended a thesis for a PhD in 1988.
Responsible for the Department of Immunology at the scientific institute of Pediatric Hematology, oncology and immunology at Moscow from 1993 to 2003 and a consultant in the aforementioned department since. As of 2009 – a member of the International Council in the same institution. A Pediatrics Professor in the state University of Moscow from 1995-2992.

Moved to Israel in 1999 to work in the University Medical Center Hadassah. Senior associate in the Bone marrow transplantation and cancer immunotherapy department. Following additional specializations, he became a certified pediatrics expert (2000) and alergology and immunology expert (2006) in Israel in 2000. An associate professor since 2007 and an academic professor since 2011 in the Hebrew university in Jerusalem, Israel. A honorary guest lecturer in several Italian Universities.
Specialized in various neonatology and pediatrict, immunology and bone marrow transplantation courses in children in the Instituto Materno Infantile and Hospita Fatetebenefratelli, Palermo, Italy (1992-1993), Cpedali Civili, Breschia, Italy (1997) and the Harvard Medical School, Centre of Blood Research and Children's Hospital, Boston, USA (1995), participated in scientific immunological research at INSERM U430, Paris, France (1996).
Responsible for his own scientific laboratory in the Hebrew University in Jerusalem since 2007, Supervisor of over 20 students and researches from Israel, India and Russia.  Member of the scientific board and reviewer of several scientific journals.
Author and co-author of over 350 scientific works, 200 of which – full-text articles. His main interest lie in the field of Biology and more precisely in the clinic implementation of the transplantation of haematopoetic and mesenchyme stem cells, several rare genetic diseases, notably primary immune deficiencies, microsomes during distant intercellular communication (in vitro and during biological models), stem-cell restauration in brain injuries (trauma, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, neurodegenerative disorders)(mechanisms and clinical implementation), mechanisms of acceptance (rejection).
