Research Interests:

I study molecular mechanisms of the differences in response of cancerous cell lines to treatment with mitochondria-damaging chemotherapeutic drugs. I am trying to find diagnostic markers - specific somatic mutations, shared by different cell lines sensitive to mito-drugs, applying both bioinformatic methods and experimental validation.
