Grigory S Filonov

Dr. Grigory Filonov is a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Pharmacology at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University. He received a Ph.D. from the School of Chemistry of M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University. Dr. Filonov conducted his first postdoctoral training at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University where he engineered fluorescent proteins that can be used to visualize processes in live animals. Dr. Filonov then joined the laboratory of Dr. Jaffrey at Weill Cornell Medical College. Here Dr. Filonov is working on expanding the “RNA mimics of fluorescent proteins” technology. In particular, Dr. Filonov focuses on developing novel high-throughput screening approaches to isolate RNA-based fluorescent probes that have different spectral and photophysical properties. Additionally, Dr. Filonov is addressing the problem of robust expression of functional synthetic RNAs in live cells and organisms.
