Maxim Yu. Khlopov is the Director of Virtual Institute of Astroparticle physics, France, President of Center for Cosmoparticle physics "Cosmion" and Full Professor at National Research Nuclear University MEPHI (Moscow Engineering and Physics Institute). On finishing secondary school with gold medal reward in 1968 entered Moscow Physical Technical Institute (MPhTI). In 1974 graduated with honours from MPhTI (Diploma of Engineer-Physicist of 30.06.1974, Moscow, duly certified English copy is available) and entered MPhTI post graduate courses, which finished in 1977 by successful presentation of thesis of candidate of physical and mathematical sciences on physical and astrophysical effects of weak interactions and got Diploma of Candidate of Science (of 15.03.1978, Moscow; USSR/Russia equivalent of PhD, duly certified English copy is available. Khlopov occupied the 2-year MIUR (Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research) position of the Full professor in the Physics Department of Rome University "La Sapienza" and charged his Research project "Cosmoparticle physics of cosmic rays and CMB". He gave courses of lectures «Introduction to cosmoparticle physics» and «Physics of primordial Universe» for PhD students of Rome Universities. Khlopov occupied visiting positions in INFN Section Lecce (Italy), Centre of Studies at very Low temperatures (CRTBT, Grenoble, France), Laboratory of Subnuclear Physics and Cosmology (LPSC, Grenoble, France). Since 2007, retaining his MEPhI and Cosmion positions he is in charge of the project of Virtual Institute of Astroparticle physics, based on APC laboratory CNRS, France. Khlopov is the author of 24 books, textbooks and chapters in books. They include the Monographs “Cosmoparticle physics”, World Scientific, 1999 ,"Cosmological Pattern of Microphysics in Inflationary Universe", Kluwer Academic Publishers and "Basics of Cosmoparticle Physics", URSS, Moscow, 2004.
