Olga Sergeeva

Senior Research Scientist
Center of Life Sciences

Olga graduated from Chemistry Department, Moscow State University in 2008 and defended PhD thesis in bioorganic chemistry at the Moscow State University in 2012.

During her postgraduate studies, Olga worked in the Max Plank Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Gottingen, Germany. In 2014-2015 Olga as a Skoltech research scientist visited Koch Institute for integrative cancer research, MIT in Boston, USA.

Olga received several scientific awards and research grants, and published a number of papers in peer-reviewed journals.
