Rector Ilshat Gafurov and representatives of both universities discussed the details on April 26th.
KFU's institutes (the Institute of Fundamental Medicine and Biology and the Chemical Institute) will cooperate mostly with the Department of Medical Chemistry and Fine Organic Synthesis of MSU. The work will include joint discussions of educational programs and mutual evaluation. MSU’s employees plan to join the teaching process at the Department of Medical Chemistry of Kazan University. The Department is now supervised by Academician Nikolay Zefirov.
"Along with educational programs we will also work on new molecules of physiologically active compounds and creating medications", said Director of the Pharmacy Science and Education Center Yury Shtyrlin.
Both sides aim to work out guidelines for the modernization of medical education in the country and present them to the Ministry of Education and Science.
