Institute of Bio-Medicine, Russian Academy of Sciences

Postgraduate studies: Physiology, cytology, histology, cell biology

NQF level 8

Dissertation: The influence of age and reduced oxygen content on the functional properties of cultured multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells in the bone marrow of rats (Note: Valushkina is my Maiden name)

PhD in Biology

I presented my Phd work on the 13th February 2013 and was awarded my Phd on the 15th July 2013

1) I studied multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells isolated from the bone marrow (BMSC) of young and old rats. The cell cultures derived from old rats were characterized by lower cell yield in the primary culture, lower number of doubling, and reduced colony-forming capacity of precursor cells.

2) Comparative histological and morphometric methods were used to study the bone callus (BC) in rats 14 and 30 days after the experimental fibula fracture. Animals were infused with cell preparations of multipotent bone marrow stromal cells–BMSC in the site of injury immediately after the fracture. The results of this study demonstrated that the infusion of allogeneic BMSC, expanded in vitro at different oxygen concentrations, into the site of fracture improved osteocartilaginous fragment and BC formation and bone size restoration in rats with fibula fracture.

Student in Chelyabinsk State University
