Welcome to the laboratory of Biomedical Applications of Nanotechnology at the University of Birmingham
I graduated from M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University (Russia) in 2013 and continued as a PhD student in Polymer Chemistry and Biochemistry with Prof. Nikolay Melik-Nubarov and Prof. Irina Grozdova in the same university. My research was focused on the design of polymeric nanoparticles capable of emitting light and generating singlet oxygen, and triggered by intracellular hydrogen peroxide. After receiving PhD degree in November 2017 I joined Medicinal Polymer Chemistry Lab at Aarhus University (Denmark) under the supervision of Prof. Alexander Zelikin where I worked on peptide-prodrug conjugates and smart hydrogels for on-demand drug release. In February 2019 I joined the group of Dr Francisco Fernandez-Trillo in School of Chemistry in University of Birmingham (UK) as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow. My current research is devoted to the control of physiology of Vibrio Cholerae via interaction of the bacteria with polymers and to identification of chemical cues underlying these interactions.
