Research Associate


MSc in biochemistry (specialization in virology) in Moscow State University;

PhD in molecular oncology (Cancer Research Center, Moscow);

Now I am working as a Research Associate in Department of Developmental Neurobiology (King's College London).

My current research interests lie in a field of post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression, its molecular mechanisms and role in cell differentiation and malignant transformation.
