Degree: Taras Shevchenko Kiev State University, Faculty of biology, Diploma with horours. Year awarded: Ph.D. (1970), D.Sci (1990). Degrees: Professor in specialty "Molecular biology" (1995), Correspondent member of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (1997). Place of work: Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics. Present position: Head of the Department of Molecular Oncogenetics.

Major research interests: gene expression, retroviruses, RNA functions and regulation, cell signaling, biomarkers.

Alla V. Rynditch is working in Institute of molecular biology and genetics NASU since it's foundation and she is one of pioneers of molecular biology in the former Soviet Union and Ukraine. Scholarly works of Dr. Rynditch dedicated to the studying of organization and regulation of genes and oncogenes expression. She was the 1st one in the world who started the research of reverse transcription, and she was between the main organizers and executors of international Programmes "Reverse Transcription" and "Revertase-Oncogen". Realization of these programmes has allowed creating of the scientific and technical basis for genetic engineering and development of the fundamental research in the field of molecular oncogenetics.

Prof. Alla Rynditch have actively collaborates with the leading scientific institutions of Italy, France, Czech Republic, Sweden, USA. She have organized and headed a number of international scientific meetings, including the several ones under the UNESCO guidance. Dr. Rynditch represented about forty symposial reports on the international conferences.

Membership: European Association for Cancer Research (EACR), Human Genome Organization (HUGO).

Number of publications: 90 referred papers and 131 conference abstracts.
