What will doctors learn? New laboratories open in universities of the country

Story National projects

On July 25, the admission campaign to universities ended. By 9 August, enrollment orders will appear.

Applicants submitted documents in person, by mail, and on the Government Services portal with the help of the admission to university online» thanks to the implementation of the national project “Digital Economy”.

One of  the most demanded areas according to tradition has become medical. In the new academic year, students will continue their research and development, many of which will be able to be carried out in new laboratories opened thanks to the national project “Science and Universities”. "In 2021, the Russian Ministry of Education and Science financed fundamental research in the field of biomedical sciences for about 13 billion rubles, — Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation Valery Falkov.         More than 2 bln.You can get a profession in medical specialties, in particular, at the universities participating in the Priority 2030 university development program, which is being implemented under the national project Science and Universities. At the selection stage last year, many universities of the country made a bet on modern medicine and presented unique projects.

More than a quarter of the programs selected for implementation are related to the latest medicine, biomedicine or genetics.

At the First Moscow State Medical University named after Sechenov (Sechenov University) of the Ministry of Health of Russia under the program “Priority 2030” the only laboratory of controlled bionic systems in the country began its work. Bionics will be taught here. «Bionic — this is the profession of the future. Such specialists develop bionic prostheses and implants, sensors, and various medical equipment. The participation of students in  laboratory projects will allow them to gain skills that are in demand today by employers of high-tech medical companies», — notes Director of the Institute of Bionic Technologies and Engineering of Sechenov University Dmitry Telyshev. The laboratory will allow scientists to solve actual problems of medicine, among the key — development of artificial organs and bionic prostheses, hemocompatible anticoagulant coatings for implants, as well as tissue engineering, “smart” diagnostics and organs on chips. Students of undergraduate and nbsp;master's programs “Materials Science and Materials Technology” will take part in scientific research. and "Nanomaterials". They have already begun to create prototypes of actuators (artificial muscles) that are capable of generating movements like biological muscles. “Electroactive polymers are used as the main materials for creating artificial muscles, which are capable of converting electrical energy into mechanical work,” tells head. laboratory Alexei Maksimkin.

Researchers at the Tyumen State Medical University (Tyumen State Medical University) have created a robot exercise bike for stroke survivors. The innovative method of Russian scientists accelerates the process of rehabilitation of patients and helps them to restore the sensitivity of their legs.

“We restore the lost connection between the brain and limbs with virtual reality software, — explains the author of the idea, The patient sees that he rides a bicycle, he gets a feeling of movement. This helps to restore neural connections, engage the spinal cord, peripheral nervous system, — explained Head of the Department of Medical Prevention and Rehabilitation of the University, Professor Elena Turovinina. The co-authors of the development were rehabilitation doctor, head of the neurological department of the primary vascular department of the Regional Hospital No. 23 of the city of Yalutorovsk Dmitry Plotnikov and a graduate of the Tyumen State Medical University Andrey Kopytov. Equipment for the rehabilitation of patients was purchased under the “Priority 2030” program. The first patients who completed the course had a positive effect. A patient with paresis (muscle weakness) of the lower extremities is completing treatment at the Yalutorovsk hospital. After several days of rehabilitation using an innovative technique, sensation returns to the legs. Doctors predict a complete restoration of the lost function.

At the St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University (SPbGETU) “LETI” the research laboratory “Motion Capture and Simulation Systems” was opened. The laboratory was created within the framework of the “Priority 2030” program. “Here, the tasks of testing and developing prostheses, evaluating the musculoskeletal system, and also conducting comparative studies of various orthopedic devices are being carried out. Our advanced equipment will reduce the cost of conducting research by eliminating consumables  — tells head of the laboratory, associate professor of the Department of laser measuring and navigation of the University Andrey Aksenov. Now the laboratory is conducting research related to the development of lower limb prostheses, which are implemented jointly with the National Medical Research Center for Traumatology and Orthopedics named after Academician G.A. Ilizarov. The results will be received in 2023 year.
