Palladin Institute of Biochemistry, Kyiv, Ukraine
I, Artem Tykhomyrov, was born on October 5th, 1977 in Dnieprodzerzhinsk (Dniepropetrovsk region, Ukraine – former USSR). After graduation of primary school on 1994,he entered Dniepropetrovsk National University (Faculty of Biology & Ecology, Department of Biophysics & Biochemistry). Having graduated with honor, he left the Department as post-graduate student on November 1999. Together with research work on his thesis, his teaching activity begins. For all time at University, he provided such practical and lecture disciplines as Biochemistry, Bioorganic Chemistry, Biophysics, The Basis of Biotechnology, Current Biotechnological Methods and Approaches, Methods in Molecular Biology, Statistics and probably some others. He defended his PhD thesis in biochemistry, titled “Characteristics of glial intermediate filament protein of rat brain under action of aluminum ions and ionizing irradiation”, on September 2005. After receiving the scientific degree, he occupied position of Assistant Professor at the Department. Since September 2009 until July 2010, he was working in Dniepropetrovsk State Agrarian University at the Department of Physiology and Biochemistry, supervising simultaneously Laboratory of PCR-diagnostics. On the beginning of 2011, he was invited to be Senior Researcher to join research group at the Department of Enzyme Chemistry & Biochemistry in Palladin Institute of Biochemistry of National Academy of Science, working in the areas of hemostasis biochemistry and tumor angiogenesis. So, since March 2011 he has been living and working in Kyiv City. His wife, Vikki Corsa, shares his hobbies and research interests and works beside him. They have wonderful little daughter, Elizabeth, year of birth – 2006, who is hoped to be more than simply outstanding scientist.
Main fields – protein chemistry and biochemistry, biochemistry of hemostasis.
Other fields – neurochemistry, immunochemistry, nanotechnology, oxidative stress, antioxidants, biomedical application of C60 fullerene.
