"There is no such thing as patriotic art and patriotic science.

'Using advanced methods, Babenko et colaborants dig science all over the globe at their pleasure, deciphering molecular bases, principal physiopathological mechanisms and pharmacodynamics of metabolism-sensitive conductors, to be in a healthier multipolar world without diabetes, cardiovascular, neurological et al morbis.' -

Dr. Evgeny Vladimirovich SHLYAKHTO, M.D., Ph.D., 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 Professor Vladimir Andreevich ALMAZOV, M.D., D.Sc. and Professor V.O. Samoilov), who subsequently became Director General of the Lab-including Almazov National Medical Research Center, a Member of RAS, the Chief Cardiologist of Saint-Petersburg and North-West Federal Region, and the Presidnt of the Russian Society of Cardiology, whom Dr. Babenko would always be be glad to cooperate with and create something next great for the National and International 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 hundreds of his ex-collaborators from all over the world he traveled well, who is now retired and lives in beautiful ancient Avignon and Montpellier on Cote d'Azure, where "Les Charmants Gars" (according to then their Assistant de Recherches lloná Babenko who had captured the image above) became not only colleagues and coauthors, but also real 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 (both have 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, at least in supporting him Blue States, instead of enabling CIA Assassination Drones, NSA Global Surveillance Programs, NATO-supported Coup d'état in Ukraine, and so on - where, after struggling to get his NIH R01 Grant renewed at the mismanaged nonprofit institute, he has reached his big dream goal of retiring on a peaceful Pacific NW island;

Babenko et al will not forget their ex-Bosses, whether they cared about all their faculties or just about $ome, including

 

"The Father of Endocrinology" (according to one American Erudite, a.k.a. George The IInd) who is a Member of NAS and IM, a Founder and/or Board Member of multiple Biopharmaceutical Companies, LLCs, et cetera, et cetera,


 and the much richer ex-"Boss" and co-author 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 and 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 Sciences, Medical Sciences, Arts too, the Founding President of the Federal National Medical and Surgical Center named after Pirogov (bona fide "Surgeon from God"), a retired Colonel-General of Medical Service, the 1995 Special International DeBakey Prize Recipient who insisted on decorating DeBakey of BCM with the Medal, originally given to the Best Performing Military Surgeon in the Russian Empire, while DeBakey of BCM was advising "the most powerful man" addicted to a few things, including alcohol, in America, then controlling the more alcoholic "leader [of New Russia]" in need of a cardiac surgery under supervision of American Agents who gave the inter-mediating Shevchenko anything he wanted, including a Honorary Physician & Science Worker Title, the State Prize, the Chief Surgeon of the Ministry of Health, a Representative of the Russian Federation in the International Committee of Military Medicine, an Accomplished Professor of the U.S. University of Federal Services, hardly speaking any foreign language, while putting his name on countless papers he never writes, unlike the literally prolific UkSSR Writer Shevchenko [Taras Grigorievich], and who, hopefully, will retire peacefully to spend his time posing as a Religious Man instead of learning what one Noble Man, not just a Nobelman, Academician Pavlov, Ivan Petrovich who actually graduated from a seminary before choosing to serve science instead of god, 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..."
