The former Max Planck Research Group Leader at the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory continues his work on chromosomal biology
Tübingen, July 19, 2012. Dmitri Ivanov who was a Max Planck Research Group Leader at the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory until July 2012 will now establish a new research group at the Bioinformatics Institute of A*STAR Biomedical Sciences Institutes in Singapore. His main focus is chromosomal biology and cell division. Chromosomes contain the genetic information. Errors in chromosomal segregation can lead to cancer and severe hereditary diseases. With his new research group Dmitri Ivanov wants to integrate the methods of bioinformatics with the experimental science in his field.
After graduation from St. Petersburg University, Russia, Dmitri Ivanov joined the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas and obtained his Ph.D. in 1999. He was a postdoc at the Institute of Molecular Pathology in Vienna, Austria, from 2000 until 2006. Since November 2006 until July 2012 Dmitri Ivanov’s research group at the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory in Tübingen, Germany, worked on the proteins involved in chromosomal segregation.
