The fundamental research of the Department encompasses: Investigation of the nucleo-cytoplasmic interactions directing preimplantation mouse development and the problem of the biological clock(s) operating in preimplantation embryo, creation of new methods of directional introduction genetical information in a mammalian genome and study of structure and stability of the transgenomes, investigation of mechanisms of intercellular interactions in agregate chimaeras of mice.

Scientific interests: nucleo-cytoplasmic interactions, preimplantation development,embryo, transgenomes, intercellular interactions, aggregate chimaeras, baculovirus, expression vectors.
