Naila has her PhD in cell biology from Blokhin Cancer Research Center in Moscow, Russia. Aside from cell biology she has experience in molecular biology and research management.


During her subsequent cell and molecular biology training, Naila received US patent on newly discovered GFP proteins with properties were useful for contemporary microscopy and developed fixation protocol allowing better visualization of fine cell structures, such as filopodia.


Before joining AMP Naila had 20 plus years of experience with different cellular and tissue models, which she studied using light and electron microscopy. Her scientific studies are dedicated to cell mechanics, cell signaling and tissue injury compensation, such as spinal cord injury.
