Dr Zelman is a renowned Russian-American scientist and one of the pioneers of Neuroanesthesia. He obtained his medical degree from the Novosibirsk State Medical Institute in 1959 and has practiced medicine ever since. While a young physician, he successfully defended the Candidate of Sciences thesis at the Institute of Experimental Biology and Medicine (now Academician E.N. Meshalkin Research Institute of Circulation Pathology), where he continued his research career in 1961-1965. During those years, Dr Zelman became interested in anesthesiology and got closely involved in the development of new strategies of brain protection during open-heart surgeries. In 1965, Dr Zelman took the position of Senior Research Associate with the Laboratory of Anesthesiology at the Department of Pediatric Diseases of the Central Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education, Moscow. Four years later, he became the head of the research program on developing brain protection protocols, joint project of the N. N.
