Profile

I am a biochemist and biological mass spectrometrist with in-depth expertise in proteomics and bioanalytical science. I was originally educated in medicine and biochemistry in Russia, and then received further industrial and academic training in mass spectrometry and proteomics in Canada and Germany. My views on applied proteomics science were greatly influenced by experiences I gained working with outstanding researchers in Prof. Matthias Mann’s lab at Max Planck Institute in Munich – one of the world’s leading proteomics labs where I played a part in development of the FASP sample processing technology, the current benchmark tool in the bottom-up proteomics area, with more than 3300 citations. My research is primarily focused on development and application of advanced mass spectrometry-based tools in clinical proteomics. One of such tools, Suspension Trapping (STrap) sample preparation method, was successfully commercialized and has been gaining popularity and acceptance in many labs worldwide. It is my goal to bring the unique power of mass spectrometry-based proteomics into translational medical research.
