Alexei Ivanovich Abrikosov

Alexei Ivanovich Abrikosov ( _ru. Алексе́й Ива́нович Абрико́сов) (January 18, 1875 – April 9, 1955) was a Russian/Soviet pathologist, full member of the Soviet Academy of Sciences (since 1939) and Soviet Academy of Medical Sciences (since 1944), Hero of Socialist Labor (1945).

He is the father to Alexei Alexeyevich Abrikosov, a Soviet/Russian theoretical physicist and a co-recipient of the 2003 Nobel Prize in Physics.

Abrikosov is thought to be one of the prototypes of Professor Persikov, the principal character of the story Fatal Eggs by Mikhail Bulgakov (in Russian, "abrikos" means "apricot", "persik" means "peach").

On the morning of January 23, 1924, Abrikosov was given a task to embalm Lenin's body to keep it intact until the burial. The body is still on permanent display in the Lenin Mausoleum in Moscow.
