    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?

    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.
