Awarded military orders and medals.
After the war on. G. Gazenko in 1946-1947 has received special training at the Military Medical Academy (r. Leningrad) at the Department of Physiology, Laboratory of Aviation Medicine, where, under the direct supervision of eminent physiologists - Academician Colonel General L. Orbeli and Professor Major General M. Brestkin studied the problem of high-altitude physiology and the state of higher nervous activity in hypoxia. In 1947 he was appointed to the Institute of Aviation Medicine of the Ministry of Defense of the USSR and went all the way from the researcher, head of the laboratory and head of the department to deputy chief of the Institute for Science.
Experience physiologist and physician assisted About. G. Gazenko in addressing issues such aircraft as work crews under adverse climatic conditions. So when it started active development of our aviation Arctic and arid regions of the country, . it as a flagship medical doctor and head of the research team between 1948-1950 took part in high-latitude air expeditions Air Force "North Pole-2, . 3, . 4, . repeatedly worked on drifting stations, . islands and the coast of the Arctic Ocean, . as well as in the Karakum desert and other difficult-to-service airmen ground,
. In 1951-1952 years participated in the fighting in North Korea.
Since 1955,. G. Gazenko focused its efforts on research in the field of space biology and medicine, becoming one of the ideologists, leaders and artists active research programs on biological artificial earth satellites. Results of biological and physiological studies of living organisms in space flight and ground-based laboratory experiments with a simulation of a number of factors of space flight possible to prove the possibility of human space flight, . and when preparations for the flight SW,
. A. Gagarin On. G. Gazenko took direct part in it.
Since 1969, the decision of the CPSU Central Committee and the Council of Ministers on. G. Gazenko attached to the 3 rd General Directorate of the Ministry of Health as Director of the Institute of Biomedical Problems, and served in that capacity until 1988.
In this position, fully manifested his great scientific experience, erudition and organizational skills. The main scientific work of G. Gazenko in this period were devoted to the fundamental problems of space biology and medicine. Studies reactions of the human organism to spaceflight conditions, and disclosure mechanisms for biological effects of weightlessness on living organisms are allowed to justify the principles and methods of protection of rights of action of adverse factors of flight, . a system of activities to maintain health and performance of space crews in flight and return to the conditions of Earth's gravity, . and a system of medical care of astronauts and preventive procedures, . allowing them to maintain health and safety,
Since 1978, O. G. Gazenko working on the rationale and implementation of complex physiological, hygienic and psychological measures to ensure implementation of long-term space flights.
