Education
Ph.D., 1993 Engelhardt Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Moscow, Russian Academy of Sciences
Research Interests
Our lab studies the mechanism of protein function at the atomic resolution level utilizing X-ray crystallography and biochemical approaches. The main focus is recombination mediator proteins (RMPs), which are essential for genome stability and DNA repair in all organisms.
