Yaroslav Nikolaev (an artistic interpretation)
Yaroslav Nikolaev (Blog - Monday Begins on Saturday)

I am working in the field of biomolecular NMR in the Biozentrum at University of Basel, Switzerland. My current focus is on transcription factors and protein dynamics coupled with enzymatic activity. In perspective am very much interested in methodology of in cell and in vivo NMR for the studies of cell signaling.

As well I am making some research on semantic annotation of research process, tools for scientific documentation and knowledge dissemination. Am very much inspired by the concepts of the Open Science and looking forward to see it revolutionizing the science and society.

I also blog about Future~Open Science occasionally.


  • 2008 (anticipated), PhD, University of Basel, Major: Structural Biology
  • 2004, M.Sc., Saint-Petersburg State Polytechnical University (Russia), Major: Computer Aided Design
  • 2003, M.Sc., Saint-Petersburg State University (Russia), Major: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Research interests

  1. Biomolecular NMR
  2. Cell signaling and homeostasis
  3. Open Science and the Future of science
  4. Human interactions, science and society
