I am not licensed to practice medicine in your jurisdiction
While attending Pavlov Medical School in my beloved home city of St.Petersburg, I developed a strong interest in embryonic cell differentiation. After graduating as a physician, without practicing medicine for a single day, I joined the Department of Mammalian Embryology at the Institute of Experimental Medicine as a research fellow. I continued my training in experimental embryology at the Reproductive Genetics Institute (RGI) in Chicago, which became my second home. RGI was headed by a preimplantation genetics pioneer Dr. Verlinsky and there I was very fortunate to work under the direct supervision of one of the most remarkable experts in the early embryonic development of mammals – Dr. Dyban. Then I joined a Ph.D. program at the Department of OB-GYN, the University of Ghent in Belgium, under the supervision of a world-renowned reproductive medicine expert Dr. Dhont and graduated Summa Cum Laude as a Doctor of Biomedicine after defending my thesis on the mechanism of ICSI. After my graduation, I was recruited by Dr. Michael Diamond to become a faculty at the Department of OBGYN, Wayne State University in Detroit where I befriended Dr. Michael Allon who started his private IVF clinic in Houston and invited me to join.
Throughout my professional life, I have made contributions to several areas of translational fertility, from discovering the mechanism of ICSI to redefining the ovulation paradigm. I serve as a President of the American College of Embryology, founded in 2009 by Dr Peter Nagy, Dr. Ashok Agarwal and myself. I am certified as a High Complexity Clinical Laboratory Director in embryology and andrology and also as a Reproductive Embryologist.
I live in Houston with my better half, love of my life, Gwen and our children. Gwen is my first reader and helped to clarify the ideas and make the text more reader-friendly.
