Myee Condrington Fellows

Dr Alexander Kubitskiy (2006)

Dr Alexander Kubitskiy is the Microsearch 2006 Research Fellow. His research and training fellowship will run for twelve months commencing January 2006.

Dr Kubitskiy is from Kazan, located in the Republic Tatarstan, Russia. He has specialised in traumatology, orthopedics and reconstructive microsurgery. He has been based at the Tatarstan Scientific Research Centre in the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Microsurgery for the past nine years and is currently holding the position of Senior Scientist.

His scientific thesis was devoted to “Surgical treatment of upper limb peripheral nerve lesions by means of traction elongation and nerve grafts methods”, being successfully defended in 2002.

Dr Kubitskiy applied for the Fellowship with Microsearch as he wanted to participate in scientific research and development in transplant surgery and also advance his microsurgical techniques.
