Laboratory of Optical Theranostics
Year of birth
Academic degree
PhD in Physics and Mathematics

Head of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University (Russia)

General information

Leading scientist's research interests: optical theranostics, biophysics.

Quote by the head of the laboratory: "Inventions of the Laboratory in theranostics directly answer the main challenge of the modern times – oncological diseases. To fulfill hopes connected with new nanomaterials as a means of targeted delivery of pharmaceuticals we need to enhance technologies of their production and assembly into hybrid complexes that can perform various therapeutic and diagnostic tasks".
