Vladimir Binhi, a physicist known for his work on electro- and magnetobiology, magnetic processes in molecular systems, and magnetic measurements. Binhi has intensively researched this area for about 30 years. Binhi has published over 60 works in peer-reviewed journals and a few books. His monograph “Magnetobiology” (Academic Press, 2002), with a foreword by Nobel Laureate A.M. Prokhorov, is devoted to classical and quantum physics of magnetobiology. Binhi graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology as a specialist in electronic processes in 1977. He then received his Ph.D. from the P.N. Lebedev Physics Institute of the USSR Academy of Sciences and D.Sc. degree in physics/mathematics from Moscow State University for his theoretical works in electromagnetic biophysics. Prof. Binhi now heads a biophysics lab [www.gpi.ru/eng/staff_s.php?eng=1&id=740] that studies primary physical mechanisms of magnetoreception.
