Alexander E. Berezin received the MD degree from State Medical University, Zaporozhye, Ukraine, in 1992. PhD degree in field of Heart Failure was earned in State Medical University, Zaporozhye, Ukraine in 1994. He is currently Professor of Medicine, Chief of Cardiology Unit of Internal Medicine Department at State Medical University, Zaporozhye, Ukraine. He became a Member (M) the Ukrainian Cardiology Association in 1997; M of the Ukrainian Heart Failure Association in 2000; M of Heart Failure Association of the ESC in 2004; M of European Acute Cardiovascular Care Association in 2010; M of W.G. on Atherosclerosis and Vascular Biology of the ESC in 2010; M of European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions in 2012; M of European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation in 2012, M of W.G. on Hypertension & the Heart of the ESC in 2012. From 2002 to 2012, he was Associate Professor at the Internal Medicine Department at State Medical University, Ukraine. His research interest includes the fundamental study of biological markers of cardiovascular diseases, the implementation of visualization procedures and percutaneous cardiovascular interventions, the development of cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation, especially in the field affected heart failure and coronary artery disease, as well as regenerative medicine. Based on this research and fellowship training he has received several awards and honors, such as: Award of The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine (2002), Honor of The Ukrainian Cardiology Association (2004).
