Andriy Kuzmyn graduated from Lviv Polytechnic National University (Lviv, Ukraine) and received a master's degree in Biotechnology.
Following his graduation Andriy was a student at UNESCO/IUPAC Postgraduate Course in Polymer Science in Czech Academy of Science Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry (Prague, Czech Republic), Department Biomaterials and Bioanalogous Systems. His research was focused on the design of polymer biomaterials and functional biomaterial interfaces that can be used as supporting structures for regenerative medicine and tissue engineering and biosensors.
Currently, Andriy is working as an Early Stage Researcher at Aquamarijn Micro Filtration BV on the FoodSmartphone project (funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under a Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant). His research project is on “Novel non-fouling bioaffinity microsieves for integrated sample preparation”. The main goal of research project is to create new approaches for design and development of bioactive surfaces for further application in microsieve-based biosensors.
