Daniil B. MUNBLIT
Honorary Research Associate at the Department of Pediatrics,
Imperial College London (London, Great Britain)
Assistant Professor at the Department of Pediatrics and Infectious diseases, Faculty of Pediatrics
I. M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University (Moscow, Russia)
Areas of expertise:
association of maternal factors (health, nutrition and genotype) with immune-modulatory factors of colostrum and mature human milk of women and their role in the development of allergies and infectious diseases in infants, quality of life in children with food allergies, asthma predictive factors
If someone had told me ten years ago that I would be a researcher, I would have laughed. But life is so unpredictable. First unnoticed, science gradually invades your personal space. I enjoy doing research work on children’s allergies. This vast area of medicine has not been studied sufficiently and offers a variety of research directions. I hope I will live to the moment when the majority of secrets behind allergies will be unveiled.
Time spent in London taught me to be open and to coopertate. If you have a chance, go abroad and learn something new, meet interesting people and make new friends. A good thing about research work is that it gives an opportunity to travel the world freely regardless of frontiers.
