Professor Sergey N. Krylov
Department of Chemistry,
York University

Dr. Sergey N. Krylov is the Research Chair in Bioanalytical Chemistry and a Professor of Chemistry at York University, Toronto, Canada.

The research in Krylov's laboratory is conducted by an interdisciplinary group of scientists with a broad range of interests, spanning applied mathematics, physical and analytical chemistry, engineering, and molecular and cell biology. We foster this synergy of expertise to achieve comprehensive interrogation of multifaceted scientific problems.

The overarching goal of our research is to create innovative and enabling technologies for biomedical and bioanalytical applications. This process includes the study of basic natural phenomena, development and validation of new methods, and creation of practical tools for use in clinical and industrial settings.

Key areas of our research include:

  • Biomolecular interactions
  • Personalized cancer medicine
  • High-throughput drug screening
  • Continuous-flow chemistry
  • Ultra-sensitive chemical analysis
  • The experimental work in our lab is performed on all levels of complexity, from in vitro and in silica studies, to tissue and cell-culture work, and in vivo animal models. Furthermore, our long-standing collaborations with multiple research hospitals provide us with access to human clinical samples. The team operates a state-of-the-art infrastructure, and has attained proficiency in a wide range of advanced techniques, including analytical separation methods (Capillary Electrophoresis and HPLC), Mass Spectrometry, High-Content Imaging, Confocal Microscopy, Flow and Chemical Cytometry, and Whole-Body Imaging. The laboratory hosts a prototype manufacturing facility, which allows us to implement our ideas into novel instrumentation. Lastly, the lab is a part of the Centre for Research on Biomolecular Interactions, with their facilities available for our use.
