To investigate non-canonical mechanisms in nervous system development and study the molecular and genetic basis of the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases.
Studying the role of neural crest cells and glial stem cells in the morphogenesis of embryonic tissues in transgenic animal models (Danio rerio, Mus Musculus).
Studying the mechanisms of natural (adaptive) transformation of embryonic stem and pluripotent cells into neurons of various ergicity and glial cells in vivo and in vitro.
Studying the role of glia and neurons of the peripheral nervous system in the occurrence and progression of neurodegenerative diseases as well as in the development of carcinogenesis.
Molecular hierarchy of neural crest cells and their involvement in the development of embryonic abnormalities
New potentials of embryonic Schwann cells in the development of cell therapy methods for tissue morphogenesis disorders
Role of mature glial cells in axon regeneration: signaling molecules and receptors
