Irina Grigoryan (Russia) ::: Article

Molecular geneticist. In 1989 graduated from the Moscow State University, Department of Biology, majoring in embryology. In 1992 obtained her PhD degree on avian retroviri in the Laboratory of Molecular Genetics of the State Cancer Research Center, Moscow. The dissertation theme: "Specific Features of Bird Virus Development in Different Tissues". From 1992 to 1994 worked in France. In 1995 moved to USA, where she studied experimentally regulation of different genes including the gene p53, one of the most important genes in the cell, which regulates stress response in general and in particular cancer development. Author of several protocols for differential gene regulation in different tissues with the help of biochips; took part in the development of equipment and protocols for this kind of analysis. Currently is Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois (Chicago, USA).

Makeev Vsevolod (b.1967, Frjazino, Russia)

Biophysicist. In 1989 graduated from the Physical Department of the Moscow State University (MSU), majoring in biophysics. From 1990 to 1993 worked at the Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the field of macromolecules dynamics. In 1994 joined the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS). In 1996 obtained his PhD degree (dissertation theme: "Analysis of Periodical Patterns in the Sequence of Collagen Protein"). In 2001 joined the State Scientific Center "GosNIIGenetika" (Moscow, Russia). Participated in various international conferences, incl. Congress II of Russian Biophysicists (RAS, MSU, 1999). His scientific interests focus on the development of mathematical methods for analysis of sequences and structures of biological macromolecules. Currently is head of the Bioinformatics Laboratory of the State Scientific Center "GosNIIGenetika" in Moscow.
