I became interested in medicine, because I was inspired by the Russian movie The Open Book, describing the life of Russian microbiologist, Zina Ermolyeva, who was a “mother of Soviet antibiotics.”
Cancer is one of the biggest threats affecting people’s physical, emotional and social life. I would like to help people to live longer with good quality of life.
I specialize in bone marrow transplantation and have previously been involved in research studying new, less toxic conditioning regiments for bone marrow transplants.
I personally believe that cancer could be eradicated through manipulation with immunological memory and/or correction of damaged repertoire of immunocompetent cells. I also hope to see if oncolytic virus therapy that utilizes genetically engineered viruses will help us to fight cancer.
Outside of work, I enjoy traveling.
