prof. Svetlana Rogaceva

Research associate of  Saratov Branch of All-Russian Institute of Genetics & Selection of Industrial Microorganisms (1988-1998); Associate Professor in Saratov Military Institute of Biological and Chemical Safety (1998-2009); Head of the Chair “Nature & Technosphere Safety” in Yuri Gagarin State Technical University of Saratov (2009 –2018). Present workplace: Head of the Chair of Natural Sciences of Saratov Medical University “REAVIZ”, Professor of the Chair “Nature & Technosphere Safety” of Yuri Gagarin State Technical University of Saratov, Russia.

Areas of professional interest are related to biochemistry, biophysics, ecological biotechnologies, as
– Microbial enzymes, catalyzing the process of nitrile transformation into amide and acid; microbial biosensor systems for acrylamide and acrylonitrile determination in water (1988-2001).
– Nonspecific effect of physiologically active and toxic compounds in combination with electromagnetic radiation of low intensity on biological systems and their models (2001-2015).
– Solid-surface fluorescence of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and heteroaromatic compounds for using in сhemical sensors (2013-present).

Teaching activities: lectures and workshops for students of Yuri Gagarin State Technical University: “Fundamentals of biochemistry”, “Fundamentals of microbiology and biotechnology”, “Xenobiotics”, “Biological indication and biological testing”, “Chemistry and biology for engineers-ecologists”, “Environmental protection and technologies of its rehabilitation”, lectures and workshops for students of Saratov Medical University “REAVIZ” in “Bioorganic chemistry”.

Activity at CNBCh UW:
Preparation of luminescent experiments with some organic components of soils, especially using the method of solid surface fluorescence on the diacetate cellulose matrices. Delivering a lecture on biosensors and chemical sensors of toxic compounds.
