Pavel Nesterenko received MSc in Petrochemistry and Organic Catalysis (1979), PhD (1984) and DSc (1999) in Analytical Chemistry degrees in Department of Chemistry, Lomonosov Moscow State University (Moscow, Russian Federation). In January 1983, took up the position of Researcher at the Division of Neuropharmacology of the Central Research Laboratory of Ministry Public Health of USSR in Moscow, where started his specialization in the field of bioseparations. This research was continued after transfer of the Division of Neuropharmacology into All Union Institute of General and Forensic Psychiatry in 1986. In 1987 joined with research team as researcher at All-Union Institute of Genetics and Selection of Industrial Microorganisms where focused attention of chromatographic analysis (HPLC, TLC, paper chromatography, derivatization methods) of intermediates and products of amino acid biosynthesis in cultural liquids as well as investigation of mechanisms of their production. In May 1988 he got position of Senior Researcher in Analytical Chemistry at Department of Chemistry M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow. After getting Dr.Sci. degree in 1999 held positions of Leading Researcher (2001) and Professor (2003) in the same research area. During this time visited few universities for long-term research projects. In 2006 was awarded Quantum Leap Professorship at Australian Centre for Research on Separation Science, at the University of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia. Currently, Prof. Nesterenko holds a strategic position of New Stars Professor at the same university. Adjunct professor of Dublin City University, Ireland since 2005, Honorary Research Fellow of the University of Plymouth, UK since 2003.
