Maxim Kurochkin

Professor: Dmitry Gorin

Maksim Kurochkin received the M.Sc. in Physics (2014) from Saratov State University, and PhD degree in Physical and Mathematical Sciences (2019) from Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, Russia. His research interests are biophysics and material science, which includes physical methods of addressing biologically active substances in living systems, image processing, multifunctional drug delivery systems and polymeric 3D micro-structured films fabrication.

At Skoltech Maxim will focus on the development and research of methods for targeted delivery of drugs encapsulated in magnetic microcapsules to target areas of the lymphatic system using electromagnetic tweezers.

Comprehensive physical-chemical method for localizing of therapeutic agents within the target lymph node using magnetic control systems and submicron carriers
