Svetlana Kozireva, PhD, was born in Riga, Latvia and studied at the Faculty of Biology of the Latvian State University, where she received her Master of Science degree.She then earned her Ph.D. degree in virology defending her thesis entitled ‘Anti-sense poly- nucleotides as inhibitors of bovine leukemia virus replication'.
During her training as a Ph.D. student, Svetlana became proficient in molecular biology techniques such as real-time PCR.She specialized in virology, concentrating her efforts on rabbit myxoma and fibroma viruses and then on retroviruses HTLV-BLV group.
In 1980, Svetlana began her career at the August Kirchenstein Institute of Microbiology of the Latvian Academy of Sciences as a technician, continued there as laboratory assistant, and then as senior biologist.At present, she is a researcher at the same institution.
