It would have been Yuriy Havrylyuk’s 60th birthday recently. He lived a short but full life and became a true example of a patriot who represented the Ukrainian medical and scientific community with dignity by his deeds, rather than words. Yuriy Havrylyuk was born on June 1, 1960 in Lviv. He graduated from the Secondary School with a gold medal. During 1977-1983, he studied at the Pediatric Faculty of Lviv State Medical Institute which he graduated with honors. During 1983-1986, Yuriy studied at the Institute of Medical Genetics in Moscow. In 1986, he defended his thesis «Medical and genetic counseling in case of mutagenic effects». Then, he worked at Lviv Research Institute of Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology (now the Institute of Hereditary Pathology) where he was employed as a geneticist at the Medical Genetics Center. In 1996, he defended his doctoral thesis «Genetic monitoring of the population in Ukrainian regions in the context of environmental pollution». In addition to science, Yuriy Havrylyuk took a very active part in public life: he was a member of the Presidium of the Ukrainian Scientific Society of Medical Geneticists, a member of the Ukrainian M. Vavilov Scientific Society of Geneticists and Breeders, Chairman of the Human Genetics Section of Lviv branch of the above society and the Ukrainian Medical Society, member of Taras Shevchenko Scientific Society.
