Maria is a founder and inspirer of the SciCanvas Project

Maria got a PhD in cell biology in St.Petersburg, in the Institute of Cytology Russian Academy of Sciences. Then she moved to the Czech Republic and started to study structural biology, getting deeper into details of nature.

Inspired by the beauty of cells, viruses, molecules, and life in all aspects Maria has decided to start this project to let everybody know how beautiful, fascinating and funny the science is. Staying in contact with her colleagues from different scientific fields she has an opportunity to see all beauty of nature itself and beauty of the human mind discovering and visualizing so many processes and objects in nature that cannot be seen by the naked eye. And now Maria just wants to share it with the entire world!
