PORTRAITS – Personalities of Romanian science and culture: Petru Derevenco – the man and his work

Authors: Călin Gabriel Şarlă1, Daniela Ciobanu2


 Romanian physiology had a lot of recovery to do in the field of characterizing the physiology of stress and the therapy of its manifestations, and Dr. Petre Derevenco managed to establish national and international relations which opened collaboration channels in the closed communism period. 

Despite his distinguished and discrete personality, who preferred an internalized attitude, his work as a doctor and a re­searcher built the scaffolding for a public figure of national and international reference.
