He received his M.Sc. from Moscow Institute of Non-ferrous Metals and Gold (1954), and his Ph.D. from the same institute in 1958. From 1958 to 1965 he worked as Director in the Central-Asian Geological Station of the Institute of Ore Deposits Geology of the USSR Academy of Sciences. In 1965 he was appointed Deputy Chief of the Research Organization Department in the USSR Ministry of Geology and in 1972 Chief of the Research Organization Department in the USSR Ministry of Geology. From 1983 to 1987 he worked as the first vice-rector of Academy of National Economy of the USSR Council of Ministers. In 1987 he was elected the President of the Kirghiz Academy of Sciences. He was appointed the Deputy chairman of the USSR Council of Ministers, chairman of the USSR State Committee for Science and Technology in 1989, and since 1991 he has been the Vice-president of the Russian Academy of Sciences. N. P. Laverov is the author and co-author of more than 250 scientific publications including twenty monographs. Many of his works have been published in Germany, the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, Cuba, China, and other countries. He is the well-known leader of the scientific school of Russian geologists. A new approach to radiogeological studies was pioneered and headed by N. P. Laverov in 1990. The fundamental principle of these studies lies in the use of protective properties of the geological environment to prevent pollution of the ecosphere by radionuclides. The studies embraced the general problem of radioactive waste disposal in the Earth’s crust.
