Research experience
1998 – 2018 A new solution of the modern cardiology problem: a strategy to predict the risk of unfavorable outcomes of ischemic heart disease is developed and new approaches are proposed to select the most effective and safe antiplatelet therapy regime in stable forms of ischemic heart disease on the basis of the study of the relationship between the features of the disease and the parameters of atherothrombotic complications morphofunctional characteristics of platelets functional state and their morphology, clinical and demographic, metabolic and genetic factors). The influence of such pathogenetic factors of ischemic heart disease (dyslipidemia, endothelial dysfunction, immune-activating activity, oxidative stress) on the morphofunctional characteristics of platelets during prolonged intake of antiaggregant therapy has been investigated. A new personalized approach to prescribing antiplatelet therapy based on cardiovascular risk factors has been developed.
2019-present Proposed an exploratory research project: "Impact of cardiovascular risk factors on premature aging." Since then, vascular aging markers and the development of preventive and therapeutic measures to decrease temps of premature aging have become the focus of scientific interest
