Professional interests/research projects:

The study of alternative means of combating pathogenic microorganisms to antibiotics based on extracts from the fat of the Black Lion fly larvae. small molecules isolated from natural plants of the Altai Territory, as well as from spirulina). Study of the effect of metabolic stress and autophagy on the decrease in the neurotoxicity of human Aβ1-42 amyloid in the Caenorhabditis elegans model of Alzheimer's disease. Search for new modulators of growth and development of agricultural plants (development of essays and proof of biological activity on model and agricultural plants). Development of a medical product based on spirulina, which is active against psoriasis.
