Nikita has gained his interest at the intersection of cellular biology and biomaterials shortly before defending the bachelor’s thesis in NUST “MISiS” as a nanotechnologist. The background was followed by a Nanobiophysics masters degree at TU Dresden. There he researched the temporal effect upon the earliest moments of C. elegans oocyte’s development. In the summer 2021, he has happily joined prof. de Boer’s BiS lab at the TU/e. With the goal to investigate the interaction between material induced mechanotransduction and canonical signaling pathway, particularly in the area of fibrosis.
