Ph.D., Moscow University, 1984

Dr.  Maslov's research of the mitochondrial gene expression includes the aspects of molecular biology, evolution and parasitology.  The objects of study, kinetoplastid protozoa, demonstrate a unique organization of kinetoplast-mitochondrial DNA and a highly unusual process of post-transcriptional RNA processing, termed RNA editing.  The ongoing research involves characterization of the mitochondrial protein synthesis and characterization of mitoribosomes and translation factors. Another direction of research is aimed at uncovering the biodiversity of kinetoplastids and investigation of their phylogenetic relationships.  Dr.  Maslov participates in the Cell, Molecular and Developmental Biology graduate program, the Genetics, Genomics and Bioinformatics and also Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology graduate programs.
