Experienced Clinical Embryologist with 8 years experience in the field of ART and laboratory management

Member of ESHRE, ESHRE certified Clinical Embryologist in process of HCPC registration

 History
Career History:

January 2003 – March 2010   Shemyakin & Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry (doctorate student and junior researcher)

During that period I gathered data, wrote and defended doctoral thesis in the fields of virology, molecular biology and fermentative kinetics. During that period, published several articles, presented my data in international conferences and acquired a substantial teaching experience, both with student groups and personally overseeing a student preparing her graduate work in our laboratory.

 

March 2010 – November 2012 (worked part-time till December 2014)      Research Centre of OB/Gyn and Perinatology, IVF Department (Scientific employee)

 

My scope of duties would include contact with patients regarding their treatment, quality control monitoring and data analysis, embryological manipulations: oocyte retrieval, semen analysis, preparation, freezing and thawing, TESA sample analysis, IVF, IUI, ICSI, PICSI, embryo biopsy, embryo and oocytes freezing and thawing, embryo transfer, laboratory set up. All embryological manipulation where done clinic wise and research-wise. In the end of 2011 I was offered to plan, equip and lead an embryology lab in LLC "Pokolenie NEXT", I accepted this offer and, to have no conflict of interest with Kulakov institute, I switched to part-time job (partly covered by maternity leave), my job focus was switched from clinical to research part, all practical job I did was research-connected, I also updated SOPs, wrote new and updated old protocols, did statistical analysis for the lab, prepared communications and presentations of our research projects and introduced quality control systems and protocols to the lab, I was also responsible for preparation of the lab for external audit procedures.

 

December 2011 – August 2018         Russian-German Centre of Reproduction and Clinical Embryology  "Generation NEXT" (Leading embryologist)

My first objective was to establish IVF lab in a new building, where no previous IVF activities where done. I started with laboratory layout, renovation services, water and electricity supplies, backup generators, lights and ventilation system, This part also included extensive study of the local laws for medical institutions in general and IVF labs in particular. I also did preliminary calculations for the amount of the equipment needed for the lab. I was also in charge of equipment choice for the whole lab (ICSI stations, micromanipulators, lazer system, antivibration tables, laminar flows, thermostats and incubators, centrifuges, light and inverted microscopes, cryostorage dewars and slow freezing equipment, quality control equipment, VOC-meter, PH-meter, CO2-meter).

I was also in charge of establishing SOPs for our lab, set QC check-ups, control points, and set reference values and action levels for critical processes, prepared all the legal documents and consents for the patients in accordance with local IVF laws. I had two embryologists and one lab technician at my jurisdiction.

My scope of duties would include contact with patients regarding their treatment, quality control monitoring and data analysis, embryological manipulations: oocyte retrieval, semen analysis, preparation, freezing and thawing, IVF, IUI, ICSI, PICSI, embryo biopsy, embryo and oocytes freezing and thawing, embryo transfer, laboratory set up.

 

September – November 2018            The Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health (Senior embryologist)

My scope of duties would include contact with patients regarding their treatment, quality control monitoring and data analysis, embryological manipulations: oocyte retrieval, semen analysis, preparation, freezing and thawing, IVF, IUI, ICSI, PICSI, embryo biopsy, embryo and oocytes freezing and thawing, embryo transfer, laboratory set up.
