Scientific achievements:
Primary research area is related to methodological work in the field of elemental analysis – development of methods and analysis of schemes based upon inorganic and molecular mass spectrometry as well as atomic absorption and atomic emission spectrometry, methodology and practical application of the trace elements speciation for the study of transport and metabolism of minerals, as well as their role in the etiology and pathogenesis of various diseases. Another important area of work is connected with metalodrugs research, including pharmacokinetics, efficacy testing, etc.
