Personal profile


Anton V. Dolzhenko received his degree (with Distinction) in Pharmacy in 2000 and then a PhD degree in Medicinal Chemistry in 2004, both from the Perm State Pharmaceutical Academy (Russia). After that he joined the Pharmacy Department of the National University of Singapore and worked there for 6 years before he moved to the School of Pharmacy, Curtin University (Australia) in 2010 and continued his academic career as a Senior Lecturer. In 2013, he joined the School of Pharmacy, Monash University Malaysia. His current research interests include synthetic and structural aspects of chemistry of nitrogen heterocycles. He has been actively working on the development of new synthetic methods for the preparation of potentially bioactive compounds. His expertise in structural analysis of organic molecules and extensive experience drive Dr Dolzhenko to organize the NMR Campus Infrastructure Platform, which he leads now providing high quality service to internal and external customers.
