Dr. Elena is Board Certified in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine and has more than 8 years of experience in anti-aging and regenerative medicine and over 15 years of medical and clinical research training. She is medical scientist, consultant, educator, researcher, lecturer and author of several publications.
Elena spent a considerable amount of time developing expertise in the areas of anti-aging and regenerative medicine, woman's health, weight loss, nutrition, stem cell research, along with neurodegenerative and metabolic disorders.
She shares the realization that aging is a curable disease. There are ten known hallmarks that are driving aging: Stem Cell Exhaustion, Altered Intercellular Communication, Deregulated Nutrient-Sensing, Mitochondrial Dysfunction, Cellular Senescence, Genomic Instability, Telomere Attrition, Epigenetic Alterations and Loss of Proteostasis. By addressing each of those areas and by coordinating diverse genetically predetermined responses that together protect and repair the cells and tissues we will be able to influence the rate of aging.
Elena has an MD from the prestigious medical school of Bogomolets National Medical University in Kiev, Ukraine. She completed her residency in Allergy and Immunology at the Academy of Postdoctoral Medical Training in Kiev. She continued her medical research and earned a doctorate in Allergy and Immunology with a subspecialty in Clinical Cardiology with a particular focus on cell plasma membrane of immune cells, antioxidant defense and free radicals. After moving to the United States, Elena completed postdoctoral training at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill at Radiation Oncology Department, which was followed by two years at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital where she contributed to an understanding of free radical events and mitochondrial function in Cancer Cell Biology as well as low-dose-rate hypersensitivity and bystander effects. That followed by one year at Gray Cancer Institute, London, UK where she studied genomic instability and mitochondrial function and five years at Duke University Medical Center where she studied intercellular communication, intracellular protein traffic, bioactive lipids and cell plasma membrane in patients with genetic neurologic diseases. She is certified by Unites States Medical License Examination Committee and is board-certified in the clinical science of anti-aging and regenerative medicine by American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine.
Her work has been published in high impact peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of Cell Biology, Oncogene, Cancer Research, Cell Host and Microbe, Nutrition and Cancer, Pediatric Research and Journal of Immunology and Allergy.
Disclaimer: Dr. Rusyn is currently actively applying for medical residency in the State of California in order to complete her medical license requirements. She is not practicing physician and does not offer any services that can be considered as "practice of medicine". Your treating physician is one of our licensed and board-certified network providers.
