Systems Biology Fellowpship-2016 winners seminar in PMI R&D center in Neuchâtel, Switzerland

The Skoltech Center of Life Sciences, with support from Philip Morris International (PMI) affiliates in Russia, began the annual Systems Biology Fellowship Program in 2016 with the aim to support young Russian scientists. The winners, selected by an expert panel, receive a 3-year financial support package for their research in the area of systems biology.

The 2016 winners were:

Ekaterina Khrameeva from Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology with project “Molecular signatures of normal and aberrant development, aging and longevity in human brain”

•	Илья Воронцов (Институт Общей Генетики им. Н.И.Вавилова) с проектом “Prioritizing non-coding variants by transcription regulatory potential”

Ilya Vorontsov from the Vavilov Institute of General Genetics with the project “Prioritizing non-coding variants by transcription regulatory potential”

•	Сергей Рязанский (Институт Молекулярной Генетики) с проектом “Biological role of polymorphism of small RNA expression in Drosophila”

Sergei Ryazansky, from the Institute of molecular genetics with the project “Biological role of polymorphism of small RNA expression in Drosophila”

•	Михаил Погорелый (Институт Биоорганической Химии им. академиков М.М. Шемякина и Ю.А. Овчинникова) с проектом “High throughput sequencing of identical twins TCR repertoires after yellow fever vaccination”

Mikhail Pogorelyy from the Shemyakin-Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry with the project “High throughput sequencing of identical twins TCR repertoires after yellow fever vaccination”

•	Анастасия Иванова (Институт Биоорганической Химии им. академиков М.М. Шемякина и Ю.А. Овчинникова) с проектом “High-throughoutput study of the genetic network controlled by the secreted regulator of the brain development and regeneration, Ag1, which was lost in higher vertebrates”

Anastasiya Ivanova from the Shemyakin-Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry with the project “High throughput study of the genetic network controlled by the secreted regulator of the brain development and regeneration, Ag1, which was lost in higher vertebrates”

During the Fellowship, the young scientists successfully continued their research, published more than 15 articles in high-ranking scientific journals, attended conferences, participated in bioinformatical competitions, and created programs for nucleotide sequence analysis.

On December 14, the winners reported and discussed their three-year achievements and results during a seminar at the PMI Research & Development center in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, with the company’s scientists and Konstantin Severinov, the CLS director. The participants were impressed with the results and the quality of the publications.

The PMI scientists in return introduced their innovative products and state-of-the-art methods of research, and gave a tour around the laboratories where systems toxicology, bioinformatics, OMICs and organotypic culture studies are held.

The Skoltech-PMI “Systems Biology Fellowship” support of Russian young scientists is ongoing. The next competition − the fourth − will be announced in early 2019.
