M.Sc. research project was devoted to co-regulation of polar mRNA transport and lifespan in budding yeast S. cerevisiae. He has also participated in a number of projects, all related to ageing and longevity: (1) Mitochondrial determinants of mammalian longevity; (2) Skin wound healing after surgery in mice of different age and longevity phenotype; (3) curation of longevity databases (GenAge, AnAge and MitoAge).
Along with Dmitri’s research activities, he participated in several courses as a teaching assistant and lecturer, giving lectures, supervising, and assisting in practical classes for M.Sc., M.D and PhD students at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and at the School of Practical Engineering at Sapir College in Israel.
