Dmitri V. Krysko graduated with the greatest distinction from the Saratov State Medical University, Saratov, Russia, in 1998. In 2000, he moved to Belgium, where, in 2006, he obtained the Ph.D. degree in medical and health sciences from the Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium. In 2006, Dr. Krysko became a Laureate of the Annual Belgian Society for Microscopy Award in Life Sciences for the Outstanding Ph.D. Thesis. Krysko then obtained a postdoctoral scholarship from the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO), Belgium. He is currently working as a Senior Postdoc Scientist at the Molecular Signalling and Cell Death Unit at the Department for Molecular Biomedical Research, VIB-Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium. Moreover, Professor Krysko is leading a subgroup investigating how dying cells (apoptotic, necrotic, and autophagic) are interacting with innate and adaptive immune system by means of damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs). In addition, Krysko serves as an Editorial Board Member of Apoptosis, an international journal on programmed cell death. Krysko, furthermore, served as a Conquest Editor of a special issue of Apoptosis entitled Clearance of Dead Cells: Mechanisms, Immune Responses and Implication in the Development of Diseases (2010; volume 15; pp. 995–1164) and as a Coeditor of a book entitled Phagocytosis of Dying Cells: From Molecular Mechanisms to Human Diseases (Springer, 2009). He also published more than 40 articles in peer-reviewed international journals including Nature Cancer Reviews, Immunity, Trends in Immunology, and Trends in Molecular Medicine.
