Dr. Arseniy E. Yuzhalin obtained his bachelor's degree in Genetics at Kemerovo State University, Russia. His early studies under supervision of Prof. Elena Brusina were devoted to the investigation of the impact of gene polymorphisms on a risk of onset of diseases such as cancer and atherosclerosis. In 2012-2013 he worked at the Research Institute for Complex Issues of Cardiovascular Diseases, Kemerovo, Russia as a junior researcher, where he explored the role of calcium-phosphate bions in eliciting endothelial dysfunction and development of atherosclerosis. In 2013 he joined the laboratory of Prof. Ruth Muschel at the Department of Oncology, University of Oxford, UK, where he earned his Master by Research and subsequently Doctor of Philosophy degrees. During this time he elucidated the influence of the extracellular matrix on the progression of colorectal cancer liver metastasis utilising high-throughput approaches such as quantitative proteomics. In 2018 he joined Dr. Anton Kutikhin lab at the Research Institute for Complex Issues of Cardiovascular Diseases as a lead research scientist to pursue his research interest in endothelial biology with relation to various pathophysiological conditions. He is also studying brain metastasis biology with Professor Dihua Yu lab at the The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, USA.
