Arcady Putilov is an expert on scientific study of rhythmic phenomena in living nature and individual variation in the fields of chronophysiology, psychology, and psychiatry. After graduating from the State University of Tomsk in 1976 (MD in zoology),
he received his first PhD (Doctoral Candidate) from the Institute of Physiology in 1985 (in animal and human physiology), and his second PhD (Doctor of Science) from the Medical University of Tomsk in 1999 (in normal physiology). Since 1976, he was affiliated
with the Institute of Physiology. In 1995, he moved to the Institute for General Pathology and Human Ecology, Novosibirsk, and, in 1995-1999, he was also affiliated with the International Scientific Center ARKTIKA (the Far-East Branch of the Russian Academy
of Sciences, Magadan, and the University of Alaska, Anchorage). Currently, Dr. Putilov 's academic positions include chief researcher at the Research Institute for Molecular Biology and Biophysics of the Federal Research Centre for Fundamental and Translational
Medicine, head of independent research group for Mathematical Modeling of Biomedical Systems (MMBMS). His experimental studies are regularly supported by research grants from the Russian Foundation for Basic Science and the Russian Foundation for Humanities.
The results of his early scientific studies on various rhythmic phenomena were summarized in the monograph Systemforming Function of Synchronization in the Living Nature (Science: Novosibirsk, 1987 [in Russian]). The results of his more recent research on
structuring individual variation were reviewed in the monograph Geometry of Individual Variation in Personality and Sleep-Wake Adaptability (Nova Science Pub Inc: New York, 4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 63 libraries worldwide).
His several works appealing to lay audience of Russian-speaking readers include a book "Larks", "Owls" and Other… (1997, 1st ed., 2003, 2nd ed., and 2005, 3rd ed.) and historical essays Evolution of psychology: history of basic psychological and biological
theories in the mirror of evolutionary psychology (2013) and History and state-of-the-art review of experimental research on biological rhythms: From observations of leaf movements to forced desynchrony studies (2016). Dr. Putilov is the first and/or corresponding
author of 95% of several dozen research papers on chronobiology, somnology, personality, and biological psychiatry published in peer reviewed international journals (Frontiers in Physiology, Chronobiology International, Biological Rhythm Research, Somnologie,
Sleep Science, Sleep and Biological Rhythms, Nature and Science of Sleep, Neuropsychopharmacology, Clinical Neuroscience, Clinical EEG and Neuroscience, Physiology and Behavior, Personality and Individual Differences, Journal of Individual Differences, International
Journal of Psychophysiology, Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, Journal of Psychophysiology, World Journal of Biological Psychiatry, Psychiatry Research, International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health, Psychopathology, etc.). Since 1991,
Dr. Putilov has served as a member of editorial board of Biological Rhythm Research (Journal of Interdisciplinary Cycle Research in years 1970 – 1993) to be appointed in year 2016 for a position of co-editor of this journal. In more recent years, he
joined the editorial boards of several online journals as an editor (including Review Editor for Fractal Physiology section of Frontiers in Physiology, Consulting Editor for Nature and Science of Sleep, Section Editor-in-Chief for Clock&Sleep, etc.). Moreover,
he was Lead Guest Editor for Sleep Disorders (2011-2013) and Guest Editor for Current Aging Science (2014-2016). He also serves as a member of editorial board and/or peer reviewer for more than 50 other international journals. Dr. Putilov is experienced in
giving lectures for academic, student and lay audiences. Since 1993, he has lectured at the Humanitarian Academy of Siberia, the Classical Institute, and the Novosibirsk State University (Novosibirsk). In 2002-2004 he organized a series of the International
Siberian Indian Summer Schools on Human Ethology. In 2001-2003, his work on a textbook on evolutionary psychology was supported by a grant from Russian Foundation for Humanities (Human zoological psychology: Mind of men and women in the mirror of evolution).
In 2016, he served as an invited lecturer at the 9th International Workshop for Young Scientists Sleep - a window to the world of wakefulness (Moscow State University, Moscow). Dr. Putilov participated in presenting innovative technologies exposed by the Russian
Ministry for Science and Education at Internationale Funkausstellung (Berlin, 2001) and Hanover Messe (Hannover, 2007). He was included in Who Is Who in Russian Science and profiled in Marquis Who's Who in the World and The Achievements of Chronobiology and
Chronomedicine (Yerevan: Noyan Tapan, 2002, p. 215).
