Ekaterina is a postdoctoral fellow at the Theodosius Dobzhansky Center for Genome Informatics. Ekaterina has graduated from the St.Petersburg State University with aPh.D. in Biology (Biochemistry) in March 2012. Her Ph.D. thesis was devoted to molecular-biological study of Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains spread in St. Petersburg in different patient-groups and analysis of point mutations associated with drug resistance. She started her research work as a student of the University studying genetic diversity of HIV-1 isolates obtained among injecting drug users living in St. Petersburg. This work has been performed within bounds of the Russian HIV/AIDS vaccine development project. In 2006-2007 she attended Advanced Tuberculosis Laboratory Training (Wadsworth Center, New York State Department of Health, USA) funded by Fogarty International Center, NIH. After return to Russia she started to study M. tuberculosis complex strains spread in St. Petersburg and Leningrad region. Her scientific interests lie in the field of molecular biology of human pathogens and human genetic markers associated with infectious diseases.
