My subspecialty - electron and light microscopy, so I have worked and are working in various fields requiring knowledge of the cell structure. I graduated from Novosibirsk State University in 1974 with a degree in "physiology", the theme of the thesis - the study of the parietal cells of ground squirrel in the active period and during deep hibernation. PhD thesis developed this theme, and the degree was obtained in 1980 in Moscow State University, while the work was performed in Novosibirsk University. Then I has passed to work in the SRC Vector (Koltsovo, Russia), where I worked on pathogenesis of various viral infections, including Ebola and Marburg viruses. In 1998 I defended Dr. Sci. degree in two specialties: virology and cytology, embryology and histology. In 2005 I obtained Professor title (Virology). In 2009 I moved to Institute of Chemical Biology and Fundamental Medicine to create Microscopy Group. Currently I have projects to study exosomes, nanoparticles, bacteriophages, microbial cells, oncolytic viruses and many small works of visualization objects in electron microscopy. I have 4 PhD students now. During 9 years I give lectures in cell biology for students of Novosibirsk University (chairs of biophysics and molecular biology). So, I had and have very busy, but interesting life. Despite of this, I have two daughters, 30 and 35 yeasr old and only one husband :-)).
