  • Boris Ivan Balinsky (23 September 1905 Kyiv, Russian Empire – 1 September 1997, Johannesburg, South Africa) was a Ukrainian and South African biologist, embryologist, entomologist, professor of Kiev University and University of the Witwatersrand. Pioneer researcher in the field of experimental embryology, electron microscopy, developmental biology. He was author of popular textbook in embryology "An Introduction to Embryology". Born Ukrainian, student of Ivan Schmalhausen, he was one of the first to experimentally induce organogenesis in amphibian embryos. Balinsky was full university professor and deputy director in Institute of Biology in Kyiv only in his 28, becoming recognized expert in fish and amphibian development. Being victim of Soviet repressions, he remained under German occupation during World War II and fled to Posnan, Poland and later Munich, Germany, Poland. Balinsky briefly worked in Scotland in Conrad Hal Waddington laboratory on mice embryology. Finally, he got to South Africa to become one of South African experimental bioscience founders. Boris Balinsky also invested in entomology with newly described species of Plecoptera, Odonata and moths from Pyralidae family, mainly from Caucasus and South Africa. (en)
