General information

Leading scientist's research interests: neurobiology, evolution, biodiversity, genetics, nanotechnologies, microanalytical chemistry, comparative physiology.

Quote by the head of the laboratory: "Diversity of life is millions of unique experiments run by the nature over three and a half billion years of biological evolution. It is unique findings of the Nature and a curious gift of the Nature to humans including prototypes of new medications and possibility of creation new form and bioengineering and regenerative medicine. But this unique heritage can be irretrievably lost. And the saddest thing is that we, our children grandchildren will not even known what we will have lost!"
