Academician Aleksey Abrikosov was a Russian/Soviet pathologist and a member of the Soviet Academy of Sciences (since 1939) and the Soviet Academy of Medical Sciences (since 1944).
Abrikosov published works on the subject of the pathological morphology of tuberculosis and tumors, including the neuroectodermal tumor. This was described by Abrikosov as "myoblastomyoma." Based upon his work, this type of tumor was named "Abrikosov's tumor". He was the author of a multi-volume handbook in special pathology.
On the morning of January 23, 1924, Abrikosov was given the task of embalming Lenin's body to keep it intact until his burial. The body is still on permanent display in the Lenin Mausoleum in Moscow.
In the early 1950s, he was subjected to repression. In 1951, Aleksey Abrikosov and his wife were barred from working in the Kremlin hospital in connection with the so called "doctors'saboteurs conspiracy plot."
In 1944-1951 he was the director of the Institute of Normal and Pathological Morphology of the USSR Academy of Medical Sciences.
On July 1, 1955 the Second Clinical Lane in Moscow was renamed to Abrikosovskiy Lane in honor of Academician Alexei Abrikosov and in 1960 his bust was erected in front of the Autopsy department of 1st Moscow Medical Institute.(Bio by Tati and Eric Anderson)
