Uzbekistan’s science has suffered a grave loss, after major scientist and member of Uzbekistan’s Academy of Sciences Anna Glushenkova died aged 90.
Glushenkova was born on 1 August 1926 in Russia’s Vologograd Oblast. After graduating from the Central Asian Industrial Institute (now the Tashkent State Technical University) in 1948, she completed her research degree and later defended her candidate and doctoral degrees. In 2000 she was elected a member of Uzbekistan’s Academy of Sciences.
A talented scientist, Glushenkova has, in her near 70-year career, worked as head of chair at the Tashkent Polytechnic Institute (the technical university), research fellow, head of laboratory, director of the Institute of Plant Chemistry, and member of the Academy’s presidium. She made a huge contribution to research into the chemistry and technology of natural compounds, while mentoring new generations of scientists.
Her discoveries have been put to use in the country’s economy, especially in the cotton industry.
Her works in cotton fibre and seed processing into consumer goods and medicine have helped support the country’s economic growth.
A renowned scientist, Glushenkova has penned over 400 scientific articles, books, and monographs on the chemistry and technology of natural compounds.
Having made such a contribution, Glushenkova was awarded the title of ‘Honoured Scientist of the Republic of Uzbekistan’ and order ‘Mehnat shuhrati’.
The memory about Anna Glushenkova, an outstanding scientist, caring mentor and humble person will forever remain in our hearts.
