Education
1976 - 1982 State University Tbilisi, Georgia MS, Ph D Microbiologist with specialization in Laboratory Techniques and Research 2000 David Axelrod Dept of Microbiology; Albany, NY, USA Fogarty Fellow, Microbiology ,Postdoctoral fellowship 2006 Durmishidze Institute of Biochemistry Tbilisi, Georgia PHD, Microbiology

Summary of Expertise
My experience in laboratory techniques is based on working in virology and clinical microbiology laboratories of various leading institutions of Georgia. I have been working as a research scientist for several years, using various contemporary methods of medical biology and clinical research. I have completed Fogarty International Training program in Microbiology and Molecular methods in Microbiology in 2000. Since re – entry grant project “Prevalence of Different Viral and Bacterial Infections Among Newborns with Generalized Infection (Fogarty International Center Grant # D43TW00233) was realized and two articles - Etiology of Neonatal Blood Stream Infections in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia , Risk factors of mortality in septic newborns in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) in Tbilisi, the Republic of Georgia, were published. Areas of my expertise also comprise development of laboratory guidelines on new methodologies such as: Standard Operation Procedures, Bio-safety, Internal Quality Control and etc, based on the WHO and National Institute of Health recommendation. As a consultant I worked with WHO and CIF experts in preparing Laboratory assessment manual. I was also involved for the WB lab assessment project carried out in Georgia and in WHO lab assessment project with special emphasis on avian influenza issues, organized in Federation of BiH and Republic of Srpska. I participated in WHO project on Preparedness and outbreak response (Diarrheal diseases) carried our in Tajikistan.
