The article is dedicated to the outstanding Russian scientist A.J. Friedenstein, a founder of the hematopoietic organs' stroma doctrine, a discoverer of mesenchymal stem cells (multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells, MMSC), an initiator of the tests to determine the «verity» of stem stromal cells. Discoveries of the scientist and scientific school he created are used both in the research and clinical practice all over the world.
