Lantsov’s lat- est studies dealt with molecular genetic diagnosis of malignant tumors and viral infections. His achieve- ments in these ﬁelds were awarded with Honorable Sci- ence Prize of the Government of Leningrad oblast. More than 20 years ago, Lantsov founded the Labo- ratory of Molecular Genetics of the Department of Radiation Biophysics of the St. Petersburg Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Russian academy of Sciences, which he headed until the last years of his life. Lantsov’s numerous followers and students are work- ing in many research institutions in Russia and abroad. Lantsov played the major role in founding, in collabo- ration with St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, Bio- physics Research and Education Center.
