Dr. Falfushynska received her Ph.D. from Institute of Animal Biology (Lviv, Ukraine) and received Dr. Sci. in Biochemistry from Chernivtci National University (Ukraine). She joined the Ternopil Volodymyr Hnatiuk National Pedagogical University as a senior researcher in 2005, then in 2011 she was employed as the Chair of general chemistry department at Ternopil State Medical University. In 2017 she joined Ternopil Volodymyr Hnatiuk National Pedagogical University as the Vice rector for Research and International Relations of and Ass.Prof. of Human Health, Physical Rehabilitation and Vital Activity Safety. She has served as a principal investigator or co-investigator on a number of research projects funded by the Ministry of Education and Science. She was awarded by Fulbright (2015) and Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (2017). Serve as a faculty mentor for PhD students, high school students conducting preparation courses for international biology competition and also high school students conducting research through the Small Academy of Science. Serve as an editorial board member for several journals and . She has authored nearly 100 research articles, 90 conference presentations, 9 patents, and served as an reviewer for more than 20 toxicological, biochemical, ecological and biomedical research journals.
Dr. Halina Falfushynska's Research interests are focus on understanding background cellular mechanisms of biochemical and physiological adaptation of freshwater and marine animals to common aquatic pollutants (copper, zinc, manganese, thiocarbamate pesticide, nanoparticles), global warming and oxygen deprivation as well as determination of tolerate limits of adaptive response. She tries to apply these strategies to the find of possible relations between exogenic and endogenic factors of human hormonal-dependent pathology progress. Dr. Falfushynska is experienced in quantitative analyses of gene and protein expression, enzymatic analyses, protein chemistry, lysosomal functional assays, geno- and cytotoxic assays.
