Alexander Alexandrovich Bogomolets (Russian: Алекса́ндр Алекса́ндрович Богомо́лец, Ukrainian: Олекса́ндр Олекса́ндрович Богомо́лець/Oleksandr Oleksandrovych Bohomolets; 24 May 1881 – 19 July 1946) was a Ukrainian pathophysiologist.
His father was the physician and revolutionary Alexander M. Bogomolets (1850–1935).
He was president of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and director of the Institute of Physiology in Kiev. His laboratories were located in Georgia, where he had a permanent research unit attached to the Academy of Sciences (1937). This was made possible by Stalin, who wanted members of the Experimental Institute to study the extension of life expectancy. He developed antireticular cytotoxic serum.
