Anastasiia’s research is dedicated to understanding how the mutations of phosphodiesterase 3A can protect the kidneys from hypertension-induced damage.
In 2019 Anastasiia was awarded a Master degree in Biochemistry (with honors) from the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Ukraine (TSNUK). During her studies (2017-2018) she was supported by a scholarship from the Zavtra.UA (Victor Pinchuk Foundation), the largest private nationwide program to support talented youth in Ukraine. While studying at the university, Anastasiia was working on various research projects at the Palladin Institute of Biochemistry (2015-2016) and TSNUK (2016-2019). In 2018 Anastasiia won the all-Ukrainian competition of Student Scientific Works (Poltava, Ukraine). From 2018 to 2019 she also worked for the contract research organization (Enamine/Bienta, Kyiv, Ukraine) and performed biomolecular screening projects for the early drug discovery.
