Sergey V. Dorozhkin received his MSc in chemical engineering with honors in 1984 from the Moscow Institute of Chemical Technology, Moscow, Russia, and his PhD in chemistry in 1992 from the Research Institute of Fertilizers, Moscow, Russia. From 1992 to 1994 he worked as a senior researcher at the same institute, and from 1994 to 1996 he worked as a biotechnologist at a Swiss-Russia joint venture. From 1996 to 2004 he held five postdoctoral positions in France, Portugal, Germany and Canada where he worked on various aspects of calcium orthophosphates.
Dr. Sergey V. Dorozhkin has authored more than seventy research papers, about thirty reviews, twenty book chapters and four monographs.
