Dr Darya Kiryushko received a M.Sc. in Biophysics and Bioelectronics from Dnepropetrovsk State University, and a Ph.D from Copenhagen University in 2005. She is currently a Research Associate at the Department of Physics.
My research interests include identification of novel mechanisms protecting neurons in brain disorders, design of neuroprotective (nano)compounds, and studying the interaction of neurotoxins with neural cells using bioimaging. More recently, I have been involved in developing of new super-resolution methods to image cell ultrastructure and intracellular drug localization using atomic force/nearfield optical microscopy (AFM/sSNOM).
