Evgeniya After taking her Doctoral degree in Chemistry at Moscow State Lomonosov University in 1998, enter the PhD course in Biophysics with the fellowship from Polo Nazionale Bioelettronica and Research Contract Award for Protein Crystallization, Project for Young Investigator of University of Genova.
After taking her PhD degree in Biophysics with the thesis entitled "Protein Crystallography By Thin Film Nanotechnology" at University of Genova in 2003, became firstly (2003-2006) Scientific Secretary of Fondazione EL.B.A. (Electronic Biotechnology
Advanced) and then Scientific Director (2006-2008) and Principle Investigator of a big FIRB research grant on Organic Nanotechnology. In this context following a postdoctoral position she has acquired the scientific responsibility of the laboratory of Nanobiocrystallography at the Nanoworld Institute, University of Genoa.
In 2007 she worked as a Visiting Scientist at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble both in Macromolecular Crystallography group, Soft Condensed Matter and Micro- and Nanofocus group. Now is one of the PI of Radiation Damage BAG. She participated as invited speaker to the international conferences on Crystallography, Nanobiotechnology and Medicine and carried out stages at Harvard University; IBM at Almaden, Jefferson Cancer Center, University of Massachusetts Medical School, UCLA and ASU.
From June 1, 2008 she has the permanent position of Assistant Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Genova Medical School, Department of Experimental Medicine. Prof. Pechkova is heading the Laboratories of Biophysics and Nanotechnology. From 2007 she is Board of Trustee Member of Fondazione EL.B.A.- Nicolini. On July, 1, 2014 Prof. Pechkova obtained National Habilitation to the Associate Professor.
