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.
