Education: RGMU, M.D. (physician-biochemist);  Gamaleya Research Center of Microbiology and Epidemiology, Ph.D. in Immunology, Moscow; summer semesters at Harvard School of Public Health; postdoc experience: UCI, Caltech, MD Andersen Cancer Center, USA

Research Focus:

I joined Nazarbayev University after many years at BCH and Harvard University as a Director of Flow and Imaging Cytometry Resource, HMS faculty and a faculty member of Harvard Microbiological Initiative. The strongest part of my research program lies in its interdisciplinary nature. In over more than thirty years in academia I was deeply involved in research and education, and developed an expertise in a variety of research fields. Research in my laboratory focuses on two synergistic areas: development of new fluorescence-based techniques to visualize and study cells and complex cellular systems: from extracellular vesicles up to cell communities, and applying these tools and molecular methods to address biological questions.

Research interests: Eclectic interdisciplinary mix of topics in microbiology and cellular biology. Extracellular vesicles. Imaging and Spectral Flow cytometry.

Books:”Imaging Flow Cytometry” – 2016, Humana Press, Springer-Nature; “Cellular Heterogeneity”-Humana Press, Springer-Nature-2018.

Recent projects:

■ Noninvasive monitoring of glioma development with focused ultrasound and extracellular vesicles (in collaboration with BWH, Harvard Medical School; funded by NIH, USA)

■ Studying activity of peripheral blood monocytes and adiponectin receptors expression in association with plasma adiponectin in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (in collaboration with NLA)

■  The early detection of coagulation disbalances in COVID-19 infection using microfluidics chip for extracellular vesicles (in collaboration with Department of Physics, SSH)

■  Development of imaging flow cytometry-based methods to study phytoplankton ecosystems and toxic algae (in collaboration with University of Aarhus, Denmark; Hungarian Academy of Sciences; partly funded by European AQUACOSM grants)

Graduate Courses: BIOL550/750 Molecular and Structural Biology of Cell in Health and Disease; BIOL 591/791 Cellular Biophysics; BIOL600 Graduate Research Seminar; Undergraduate courses: BIOL333 Environmental Biology
