The results of the visits are presented in this picture story.
Laboratory of Telemedicine
Tatiana Volkova, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Associate Professor, Director of the Institute of High Biomedical Technologies, and postgraduate student Arina Bogdanova are analyzing the outcome of experiments performed on the test-system of early detention of oncopathlogies of reproductive system and immunoinflammatory diseases.
Laboratory of Pre-clinical Studies, Cell Pathology and Bioregulation
Irina Vinogradova, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor, Head of the Laboratory of pre-clinicla Studies, Cell Pathology and Bioregulation, and her team continue research in the field of gerontology (science of ageing), study the effect of white nights and epiphyseal hormone melatonin on human health. Moreover, the laboratory carries out fundamental and applied research, experimental development (including interdisciplinary) in the fields of pre-clinical studies of medicine drugs, pharmacology, pathologic physiology, physiology, ecology, microbiology, and biopharmaceutics.
United Multifunctional Center of Modular Education
Marina Shubina, Associate Professor of the Department of Propaedeutics of Internal Diseases and Hygiene, prepares students of the Institute of Medicine for practical work with patients. Before they can start working with people, students have to learn how to diagnose internal diseases on simulators.
Laboratory of Bioactive Natural and Non-natural Silicon Compounds
Vladimir Andreev, Doctor of Chemical Sciences, Professor, told that the Laboratory is currently doing research work on physical and biological properties of molecular complexes of porphyrinic molecules present in hemoglobin and chlorophyll. The researchers have created antibacterial compounds, and filed the necessary applications for a patent.
Pavel Sobolev, Associate Professor of the Department of Molecular Biology, Biological and Organic Chemistry of the Institute of Medicine, studies kinetic properties of different organic origin in biosystems.
Laboratory of Clinical Epidemiology
Olga Barysheva, the Head of the Laboratory, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor of the Department of Hospital Therapy, Associate Professor, Vice-Director for Research and Innovation of the Institute of Medicine, told that research and development of the Laboratory have been awarded with silver medal of the international contest “Bioindustry-2016” and “Hi-Tech-2015”. At the Laboratory scientists carry our fundamental and applied research, experimental developments (including interdisciplinary) in the fields of epidemiology, risk factors, pathogenesis, clinics, diagnostics and treatment of wide-spread and socially significant diseases – acute coronary syndrome, arterial hypertension, familial hypercholesterolemia, rheumatic arthritis, hyperuricemia and uratic arthritis, chronic renal disease, pulmonary hypertension, inflammatory bowel disease, chronic pain syndrome of various geneses, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and virus liver disease.
