About University of Oxford
The University of Oxford (informally Oxford University or simply Oxford) is a collegiate research university located in Oxford, England. While having no known date of foundation, there is evidence of teaching as far back as 1096, making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's second-oldest surviving university.

I earned my degree in Genetics at Kemerovo State University, Kemerovo, Russia
I worked in Research Institute for Complex Issues of Cardiovascular Diseases, Kemerovo, Russia
My current place of work: Department of Oncology, University of Oxford, Oxford, England
My research interests include but not limited to:
1) What is the impact of extracellular matrix on metastatic dissemination of cancer cells? How do tumor cells interact with the host vasculature during metastasis?
2) What is the nature of calcifying nanoparticles, also known as nanobacteria? What are the mechanisms of pathological calcification caused by nanobacteria in the human body?
3) What is the role of inherited genome variation in risk of diseases? Which single nucleotide polymorphisms determine individual susceptibility to cancer or cardiovascular diseases?
I am based in the Analysis Group at the Oxford Centre for Functional MRI of the Brain (FMRIB), supported by a Medical Research Council fellowship. I hold an honorary contract at the UCL Institute of Neurology, where I collaborate with the Methods Group of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging (WTCN/FIL) and the Dementia Research Centre (DRC). My main interests are structural and functional MRI, dementia and neurodegenerative disease, mathematical and computational modelling, multivariate statistical analysis and machine learning.
In addition to the journal and conference paper reviewing shown here, I have reviewed abstracts for OHBM and the BNA. I have reviewed grants for the UK Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and the French national research agency (ANR). I served on the editorial board of NeuroImage from 2011 to 2013. I would particularly welcome invitations from PLoS, eLife, PeerJ, Royal Society Open Science, and other forward-thinking journals.
Dr H Rogier van Doorn is a Clinical Microbiologist from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He has worked as a clinical researcher and group head of the Emerging Infections group at the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam between 2007 and 2015, leading a multidisciplinary group of around 20 postdoctoral scientists, PhD students, research assistants and clinical research staff. Rogier became director of the OUCRU unit in Hanoi in 2015 where he leads a programme on influenza in the community and all aspects of antimicrobial resistance, from laboratory diagnostics and sequencing to national policies and legislation.
Martin Hodson is a plant scientist and environmental biologist, and a former Principal Lecturer, and now Visiting Researcher at Oxford Brookes University. He is also Associate Member of the Institute of Human Sciences at the University of Oxford and Operations Director for the John Ray Initiative. Martin was the tour scientist for the Hope for Planet Earth tours, and writes and speaks widely on environmental issues. He has over 100 publications, mostly in international science journals. His recent books are Cherishing the Earth (with Margot Hodson, 2008), Functional Biology of Plants (with John Bryant, 2012), The Ethics of Climatic Scepticism (with Margot Hodson, 2015), A Christian Guide to Environmental Issues (with Margot Hodson, 2015) and An Introduction to Environmental Ethics (with Margot Hodson, 2017).
My research focus is on the cerebral cortical development. It seeks to decipher how cerebral cortical neural cell fates are determined (with special attention in the earliest generated cells in the subplate and in the large pyramidal cells of layer 5), and how development of cortical functional specialisation (arealization) is determined by genetic and environmental factors. The arealization of the mammalian cortex is controlled by a combination of intrinsic factors that are expressed within or near the cortex, and external signals, some of which are mediated through thalamic input. Members of my research group study the generation of cortical neurons and development of the cortical connectivity in this context.
