I was born in Taganrog city, Rostov province, Russia. In 2001 entered the medical school of the biggest and oldest Russian university – Lomonosov Moscow State University which I graduated with honours in 2007. In 2013 I was awarded Russian PhD degree. In 2007-2012 I’ve been participating in the activity of the Russian Scientific Society of Nephrologists. Regularly I participate in the conferences affiliated with Russian Dialysis Society, Russian Scientific Society of Nephrologists, ERA-EDTA, ISN and ASN. Since 2009 I’ve been full member of ERA-EDTA and ISN. I am co-author of 19 research and review manuscripts (in Russian) and 1 chapter of online textbook (in English). I presented 6 poster reports at the International Society of Nephrology (WCN 2011, Vancouver), European Renal Association (ERA-EDTA, 2009, 2010,2012,2013) and American Society of Nephrology meetings (Philadelphia, 2011).
