I have finished my BSc in Physiology and Pharmacology at the University of Westminster (UK) and my MSc in Pharmacogenetics and Stratified Medicine at the University College London (UK). I have received my PhD in Allergology and Immunology at the Lomonosov Moscow State University (Russia). My PhD project received funding from Russian Foundation for Basic Research as the best fundamental project. My PhD project aimed at exploring immunomodulatory effects of heat shock proteins (HSPs) in lymphoma and finding HSP signatures in liquid biopsies of cancer patients. During my PhD I have published 8 articles and two book chapters in the field of immunology as a first author.
I joined the Grey lab in the Department of Biology at the University of York in July 2023. My primary interests are oncohematology and tumor immunology/immunotherapy. My project in the lab is focused on an understanding the fundamental differences in the biology of healthy and malignant hematopoietic stem cells and finding novel targets for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia patients.
