Biography

Snezhana (Snezhka) Oliferenko studied biochemistry and virology at Lomonosov Moscow State University before joining Lukas Huber’s lab at the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna, Austria, for her PhD studies. Snezhka then moved to Singapore to work as a postdoc with Mohan Balasubramanian. In 2002, she established her research laboratory at the Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory (TLL) in Singapore. At the end of 2013, she moved her lab to the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics at King’s College London, UK. Since August 2016, her lab is on secondment to the new Francis Crick Institute in London. Her research is funded by the Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Scheme.
