M.D., PhD student

Hello there! My name is Oleksandr and you’re on my website now. Three keywords about me: primate, nonconformist, believer in ability of homo sapiens to overcome any difficulties.

I’ve graduated from Odessa National Medical University and now I am working as a PhD student / Predoctoral Fellow. I am affiliated with such amazing institutions as Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Rare and Undiagnosed Diseases, CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and Medical University of Vienna.

After graduation I worked in a private human reproduction center: initially in the IVF lab, then I joined the management team of the center.

After it I earned an experience in Odesa Specialized Center for Medical Genetics. Genetics itself and genetic diseases are the topics of interest to me.

Together with my colleagues in Ukraine, I am working on the project Genomics UA
