Labor omnia vincit                                

"Thought is the labor of the intellect, reverie is its pleasure." - Victor Hugo

"The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function." - F. Scott Fitzgerald

"Smart people make good choices. They dig science and say 'no' to the invasion of sovereign nations for the pleasure of corporations." - Henry Rollins

"There is no such thing as patriotic art and patriotic science. Both art and science belong, like all things great and good, to the whole world, and can be furthered only by a free interchange of ideas among contemporaries, with continual reference to the heritage of the past as it is known to us." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"When work is a pleasure, life is a joy! When work is a duty, life is slavery." - Maksim Gorky

"I do and I understand." - Confucius.     "To do is to be." - Plato.     "To be is to do." - Immanuel Kant

"Science progresses in jumps, depending on advances made by methodology." - Ivan Petrovich Pavlov 

Using advanced methods, Babenko et colaborants dig science all over the world at their pleasure, deciphering molecular bases, principal physio-pathological mechanisms and pharmacodynamics of metabolism-sensitive conductors, to conquer diabetes, cardiovascular, neurological et al morbis and be in a healthier multipolar world

Prof. Evgeny Vladimirovich SHLYAKHTO, MD, PhD, a colleague of Dr. Babenko at then First State (now Federal) Pavlov Medical University Lab for Molecular Cardiology (created by them in 1994 upon receiving a blessing from the RAMS Member Vladimir Andreevich ALMAZOV, MD, PhD, who has recently passed away), a tireless builder, and finally Director General, of the Lab-including Almazov National Medical Research Center, now a Member of RAS, the Chief Cardiologist of Saint-Petersburg and North-West Federal Region, and the Russian Society of Cardiology President, whom Dr. Babenko hopes continue cooperating with again to create something next great for the National and International level Medical Research;

     

Dr. Guy VASSORT, DSc, Directeur Emeritus of the INSERM Unite Physiopathologie Cardiovasculaire, Member of Physiology and Neuroscience Section of Academia Europaea, a globally thinking, miserable Presidents-disliking Frenchman, admired by Babenko and hundreds of other ex-collaborators from all over the world he traveled well, who is now retired in the beautiful ancient Montpellier on Cote d'Azure, where 'Les Charmants Gars' - charmed by then their Assistant de Recherches lloná Babenko to be captured as photo-pictured above - became not only colleagues and coauthors, but also close friends;
 

  
Dr. Joseph Bryan, Ph.D., not a typical American Joe, who quit a Medical School to dig science, openly opposed Vietnam War as every other American Intervention, and traveled far East to learn a lot, the 1996 DeBakey Prize Winner, the ex-Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology, whom Dr. Babenko was thrilled to work with for over a decade at Baylor in the World's Biggest Medical Center until the two faculties resigned during the Bush IInd Term (yes, they opposed the endless criminal Iraq War supported by the Baylor's Administartion benefiting from donations of Petrodollars made in Iraq) and moved to Pacific NW Diabetes Research Institute in Washington, naively hoping that the Blue State-supported Obama will stop that war and many other horrible things started by his predecessors, and will markedly increase Federal funding of peaceful research in supporting him 'Democratic' States, instead of funding next Pentagon-wanted neo-colonial Interventions, CIA-wanted Drones/NSA-wanted Global Surveillance Programs, NATO-wanted Coup d'état in Ukraine and so on, who after struggling with the next nonprofit administration has reached his big dream goal of retiring on a peaceful Pacific NW island;

 
   
Dr. Philippe FROGUEL, M.D., Ph.D., Prof. and Chair in Genomic Medicine of the Department of Genomics of Common Disease at Imperial College London, Director of the Queen Mary and Westfield College Genomic Center, as well as of CNRS UMR-8199 Genomics of Metabolic Diseases within the co-founded-by-him European Genomic Institute for Diabetes (EGID), Lille 2 University and Pasteur Institute in Lille, the Head of the Department of Human Genetics at Institut de Biologie de Lille, the Scientific Director of the Qatar Biomedical Research Institute, Visiting Professor at the European University CypRus, Member of the Academy of Medical Sciences (UK), a Nobel Winner-trained to work with other best in their fields, e.g. Dr. Martine Vaxillaire, DPharm, PhD, and therefore one of the World's Highest-Impact-Factor-Reaching Authors, whom Dr. Babenko is proud to call "A Superb Collaborator";


Dr. Babenko will not forget his ex-Bosses, whether they cared about him and all other Faculties or just about $ome,

 

"The Father of Endocrinology" (according to the American-speaking erudite George The Second), who is a Member of the NAS and IM, a founder and/or Board Member of countless biopharmaceutical companies, LLCs, et cetera, et cetera, doing well under either color President;


 and the much richer ex-Boss and coauthor of Dr. Babenko, the past Chief of P. A. Kupriyanov Cardiovascular Surgery Clinic of S. M. Kirov Military Medical Academy, its ex-President, and the ex-Minister of Health & Medical Industry of the Russian Federation, a Member of the Presidium of RAMS, Associate Member of RAS, Member of the Ukrainian and some other post-Soviet and Foreign Academies of Medical Sciences, of just Sciences as well, and of Arts too, the Founding President of the Federal National Medical and Surgical Center named after the truly Famous Surgeon Pirogov, a Retired General-Colonel of Medical Service of the Russian Federation, the 1995 Special International DeBakey Prize Recipient who insisted on decorating DeBakey of BCM with the highest Medal originally given to the Best Performing Military Surgeon while DeBakey of BCM was advising "the most powerful man the planet" controlling a more alcoholic New Leader of Russia in need of a cardiac surgery under supervision of an American surgeon, who gave Yuri not Dolgorukiy anything he wanted including a Honored Physician and Science Worker of the Russian Federation, Laureate of the State Prize of the Russian Federation, Chief Surgeon of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, Representative of the Russian Federation in the International Committee of Military Medicine plus an Accomplished Professor of the U.S. University of Federal Services who hardly speaks any foreign language, puts his name on countless papers he never looks at, has no relation to the truly Famous UkSSR Writer Taras Grigorievich SHEVCHENKO, and, hopefully, after being Presidentially decorated, will finally retire to spend even more time posing as a deeply religious man, since he never learned from his former Boss and Dr. Babenko's Academic Adviser what Academician I. P. Pavlov - who actually studied at a Seminary before choosing to serve Science instead of God, at Dr. Babenko's Alma Matres - said: "Признавать существование бога – это предрассудок, абсурд, признак умственной отсталости... Религия нужна слабым; сильным она ни к чему... Моя вера — это вера в то, что счастье человечеству дает прогресс науки..." and that the next thing he must learn is that the best interpretation of Labor omnia vincit is "Терпение и труд все(х) перетрут".
