Dr. Boris Farber, Vice President European Academy of Natural Sciences, Chairman of USA division of European Academy of Natural Sciences, CEO of: Farber’s Center for Academic Success, Inc.; Noigel, LLC.; TRIZ Biopharma International, LLC, QuaziVita International Corp., has just recently been selected as Top Biotechnologist of the Year and Top Educator of the Year for 2018, by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP), for his outstanding leadership and commitment to the field.
While inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor in itself, only a few members in each discipline are chosen for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, longevity in the field, other affiliations and contributions to their communities. All honorees are invited to attend the IAOTP’s annual award gala at the end of this year for a night to honor their achievements.
The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami stated that “Choosing Dr. Farber for this award was an easy decision for our panel to make.He is brilliant, his list of accomplishments and accolades are beyond impressive, he is active in numerous organizations and affiliations, he was exactly what we were looking for.We know we will be seeing more outstanding things from this man and hope to spend time with him at the gala.”
In his youth Dr. Farber set five goals for himself: 1. To get a deep knowledge and well-rounded education, 2. To study biomechanics, 3. To study optics, 4. To study Leonardo Da Vinci’s scientific legacy, 5. Specifically to study the relationship between various fields of Da Vinci’s science and his art.
These goals were shaped as a result of two important events in his childhood. The first was a present Dr. Farber received from his parents (his father was an inventor and a Green Beret officer, and his mother was a pharmacologist) for his 10th birthday, a collection of books and coins dedicated to Leonardo Da Vinci. The second event occurred when he was 11. His father introduced him to a new philosophy of system thinking called TRIZ (Theory of Inventive Problem Solving), and a year later, his father introduced him to Genrich Altshuller, the creator of TRIZ. These events inspired Dr. Farber to want to understanding the legacy of Leonardo Da Vinci from another perspective. Namely, to develop a system using TRIZ to create inventions and projects and understand the legacy of Leonardo da Vinci from a TRIZ, Anticipatory Failure Determination and SWOT Analysis perspective.
In studying Da Vinci’s legacy a few facts stood out to Dr. Farber. First, Da Vinci displayed top skills in an unfathomable number of diverse areas. Mankind has never seen such a prolific individual across such a vast array of fields. Second, Da Vinci, in addition to great scientific brilliance, was one of the greatest artists the world has ever known. As Da Vinci himself said “The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.” The last fact that stood out to Dr. Farber was Da Vinci’s discovery of the wave nature of light. Specifically, Leonardo studied interference and diffraction in optics many centuries before these were discovered by the broader scientific community.
It was impossible to understand Da Vinci’s legacy without first obtaining diverse knowledge in different fields, so Dr. Farber created a plan to gain a well-rounded education in a number of subjects, including but not limited to: painting, biomechanics, and optics. As a result of his interest and hard work, Farber studied independently and received a high school degree diploma externally, after finishing eighth grade. Since then he has studied in 17 different institutions and post graduate schools. Some of his majors were Bioengineering, Biomechanics and Biotechnology. Dr. Farber received a Postdoctoral Degree in Bioengineering and Applied Mathematics at the Central Research Institute of Prosthetics and Orthotics.In 1987 Dr. Farber earned his Ph.D. in Bioengineering and Robotics at the Moscow State University of Instrument Engineering and Computer Science, and a Ph.D in Biomedical Engineering at the Central Research Institute of Prosthetics and Orthotics in Moscow.He received his Dr. Science Degree in Biotechnology and Biological/Medical Systems Control at Peter the Great, St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in 1992 and then received a Professor Diploma in Biomechanics in 1994 and a Professor Diploma European Academy of Sciences in 2017. Dr. Farber also obtained a strong background in Electronics and Semiconductors from The Technical College of Electronic Devices in 1971. He also studied Mechanical Engineering in 1976 at the State Technical University, Applied Mathematics in 1979 at Moscow State University, and Applied Dynamics in 1983 at Institute of Constructions. Some additional areas include Applied Mathematics and Programming (Institute of Radio Electronics and Automatics), Advanced Programming, (Institute of Programming), Applied Homotoxicology (Academy of Homotoxicology), and International Patent Law (Academy of Intellectual Property, 1981).
Dr. Farber is the author of fundamental works in bioengineering, biotechnology, mathematical modeling, prosthetics, orthotics, biomechanics, bionics, movement control, kinesiology, electrostimulation, scoliosis, myoelectric control, ergonomics, rocket-space industry, technologies for post-stroke and post-heart attack treatments, artificial intelligence in expert systems, cancer and atherosclerosis diagnostics, pharmacological biotechnology and nanotechnology. His four-volume books titled "Theoretical Aspects of Motion Control and Electro-stimulation" became bestsellers for professionals in this domain. His latest article “Creation of New Medical Drugs Based on TRIZ and Computer Mathematical Modeling” won an international competition at the European Academy of Natural Sciences 2019 ().
Using TRIZ and his vast education, he is credited with more than 700 technologies, inventions, scientific articles and books in various fields including: logistics, automotive; construction; dynamic testing, agriculture, logistics, test methods; seismic exploration; training; electronics, applied optics; car industry, ignition systems, multi-axis trucks, ergonomics, magnetic fluid control, education, operators’ control, sport, medicine, bioengineering, orthopedics, biomechanics, prosthetics, and bioelectrical control. Additionally, he has inventions in medical systems, and vibrotactile receptor systems.His inventions have been used not only on Earth for patient rehabilitation after strokes, but also in in space flights and orbital space stations.
Based on TRIZ and theory of evolution, he has been developing self-adjusted and self-organized dynamical systems in many areas of his research starting in 1971 with Semiconductors, then dynamic layered system in 1973. In 1984 he developed inventions in dynamic multiaxial vehicles. Furthermore, he created the world’s first group of self-adjusted dynamical mechanisms for Bioengineering in 1979. Dr. Farber also developed self-adjusted dynamical rheological elements based on magnetic liquid for prosthetics and for training devices in 1983. Starting from 1984, he published development forecasts for Prosthetics and Orthotics based on The Laws of System Evolution, which were used for creating a line of pioneer self-adjusted prosthetics and orthotics. He invented the first adaptive dynamic self-adjusting rational systems in bioengineering that are patented and commercially available in the rocket and space industry. Dr. Farber’s inventions have helped hundreds of thousands of patients in rehabilitation with spinal problems (including a new proprietary method of treating scoliosis), lower and upper limbs prosthetics and orthotics and improved their lifestyle.
As the Director of Science at the Central Research Institute of Prosthetics, the largest institute in the world in this field, Dr. Farber made the next logical step by applying this approach of self-adjusted and self-organized dynamical system for developing different aspects in the medical field. Dr. Farber and associates started research in self-adjusted and self-organized dynamical drugs in 1993. As a result, a new group of 21 medical drugs was discovered, including the first dynamic drugs in the World. These drugs are quasi-living, self-adjusted, self-organizing dynamic medicinal and diagnostic medicines, which represent a revolutionary jump from static medicines to dynamic drugs with variable structure and synergy. These drugs system have the ability to adjust to the body of each individual, and to adapt to its system of receptors. As a result, the effectiveness of such drugs increases and the action spectrum extends substantially. The implementation of this approach has shown tremendous results. For instance: a dynamic antiviral veterinary drug was produced showing wide action spectrum and efficacy. Another example is hemostatic "Gemma" successfully applied in practice on the battlefield and saved hundreds of lives. His group continues to research dynamic anti-cancer drugs, antiviral drugs, synergistic quasi-living antibiotics, and anti-atherosclerosis drugs. They are also developing quasi-living medicines for diabetes, insulin, vaccines, and wound healing. They have developed a method of reducing polymyxin nephrotoxicity. He is one of the fundamental discovery authors of “The phenomenon of virulence factors and toxin formation loss in bacteria during the stimulation of CAMP accumulation inside cells.”
Dr. Farber’s research and inventions are based on a strong scientific-mathematical foundation. For instance, he created a set of advanced mathematical models including: a mathematical model of anthropomorphic robots for optimization for patients with artificial limbs, based on a system of Lagrange differential equations; mathematical models of human gait, based on Kelvin-Voigt rheological elements and systems of differential equations; mathematical models for the analysis and synthesis of spatial mechanisms; discrete mathematics models for synthesis elements of anthropomorphic systems; mathematical model for Pacinian vibro-receptors; blood cell morphometric method lymphocyte regression model for cancer diagnostics; combinatorial mathematical model for optimization self-organization and adaptation of molecular robots, etc.
Based on a strong scientific-mathematical foundation, his team designed unique software applications including: Expert Systems for Biomechanical Measurement and Prosthetics and Orthotics Prescription, based on Artificial Intelligence; Interactive Anthropomorphic Models with viscoelastic elements; and Lagrange anthropomorphic robots. His pioneer magnetorheological fluid appliances are implemented in a new generation of computer control prosthetics and muscle training machine based on myoelectric control. His inventions are widely used and have brought tremendous economic and social benefits.
Dr. Farber’s impressive repertoire of prior roles has included working as a Scientist, Chair of Department of Artificial Limbs, and as a Director of Science at the Central Research Institute of Prosthetics, the largest research institute of prosthetics in the world. The first myoelectric prosthesis hand in the world was created at the Institute and the Institute received the Order of the Red Banner, one of the highest awards from the government as a result. With over 4 decades of professional experience as a seasoned and trusted Scientist, Educator, Biotechnologist, and Entrepreneur, Dr. Farber has certainly proven himself as an accomplished professional and expert in the field who has worn many hats.
In order to develop such diverse Bioengineering, Bio and Nano Technologies research projects, he and his team created several companies including: Noigel, LLC, (inverse of Legion), Farber’s Center, TRIZ Biopharma International, QuaziVita International.
