Anatoli Brouchkov (Russian Cyrillic: Анатолий Брушков; b. April 18, 1957) is a Belarusian-born geocryologist who studies permafrost in the Russian Arctic, including studies of the survival of micro-organisms in permafrost and the impacts of climate change on permafrost. Brouchkov has been noted for his claims to have performed a gerontological experiment by self-administering through injection an inactive culture of a 3.5 million-year-old bacteria, Bacillus cereus strain F, which was extracted from permafrost samples taken in 2009 at Mammoth Mountain in Central Yakutia, Eastern Siberia.
