Master Students generated and analyzed lot of flow cytometry data on biochemical- and immunological parameters. The experiments were logical continuation of the work started by former Master Students Nataliia Petriv and Mariya Holovchak year ago in Hannover Medical School (https://kurs.if.ua/news/frankivski_studentky_vygraly_stypendiyu_leonhardeulerprogramm_foto_58144.html), being granted by Leonard Euler Scholarship in 2017.

It should be noted that collaboration with Dr. Tetyana Yevsa began with the joint organization of German-Ukrainian Workshop for young scientists “Perspectives for young scientists in life sciences: mastering global challenges of the modern society” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hzl2Pbdkiso


The experiments of Master Students were devoted to immunological and biochemical peculiarities of laboratory mice with precancerous and cancer liver disease. The research has been performed and will be continue with great hope to really help sick people. Anastasiia and Lesia have recently returned to the laboratory at the native Dept. and are now intensively preparing for the official defense of master’s works, which will be attended by Dr. Tetyana Yevsa. The event will take place 20th of December 2018 at 12 am., room #617 in the building of the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the Precarpathian National University (Halytska, 201).

We invite everyone interested to attend the defense of the master’s work of our graduates!!!
