Biographical Info

Lab

One of the goals in the Malchenko lab is to provide a venue for communication and education in the field of stem cell experimental models of human diseases to promote interdisciplinary collaboration. We are motivated by the opportunity to expand interdisciplinary collaborations in exploring a recently developed animal model of Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumors.

Personal Statement

I joined the University Of Illinois College Of Medicine at Peoria in March 2015 motivated by the opportunity to expand my interdisciplinary collaborations exploring recently developed animal model of Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumors (Sergey Malchenko, Simone Treiger Sredni, Atsushi Kasai, Kazuki Nagayasu, Kaoru Seiriki, Jianping Xie, Naira Margaryan, Hitoshi Hashimoto, Rishi Lulla, Lauren Pachman, Herbert Y. Meltzer, Mary J.C. Hendrix and Marcelo B. Soares. 2015. A Mouse Model of Radial Glial Cell-Derived Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumors. PLOS ONE Mar 31; 10(3):e0121707). One of my goals is to provide a venue for communication and education in the field of stem cell experimental models of human diseases, to promote interdisciplinary collaboration, and to advance our ability to be competitive for extramural funding.​
