Mykola Zdioruk, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, BWH and HMS.
Dr. Zdioruk is a research fellow in Dr. Peruzzi Lab (HCNL), where the research effort is focused on the development of novel RNA-based therapies to treat brain tumors. He obtained his Ph.D. from Chernivtsi National University (Ukraine) and his M.S. from Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, (Ukraine). Dr. Zdioruk specialized in oncology drug discovery and neuro-oncology during his post-doctoral trainings at Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, Polish Academy of Science and at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. As a citizen of Lviv, he feels obliged to support Ukraine and Ukrainians in this extremely difficult time. Being a son of M.D. who worked for Lviv Oncology Center, for almost twenty years, he learned an exact meaning of the word – “care”. These days Ukrainians are those people who need help and care. While personal initiative to support Ukrainians, with even small humanitarian aid didn’t have a success, he was more than happy to find and join the community of the world-class medical doctors and specialists based on Harvard Medical School campus, who organized “Help Ukraine Group”. Together, we will combine our effort to accumulate resources and funds to provide better help for Ukrainian people.
