Welcome to Arsenii !

My name is Arsenii Dmitriev was born and raised in Russia where I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology. In 2019 I decided to further my education and I applied for a Master in Molecular Bioengineering at TU Dresden, Germany (graduated in 2021).

During the COVID pandemic, I was fortunate enough to be able to finish my master’s work at the MPI-CBG in Hyman lab. My participation in the research field of transcriptional condensates gave an appreciation for the complexity of biology and my view that an interdisciplinary approach is required to tackle biological research.

That’s exactly what attracted me to UNIL. Here, I joined Nadine Vastenhouw group and my project will focus on the role of transcription factors in zebrafish development. In my spare time, I enjoy doing sports, playing the ukulele and listening to music.
