The Regional Historical Research Laboratory functions at the World and National History Department.

The creation of the Laboratory was associated with the need to involve faculty members, graduate students and students in the work of preserving, processing, publishing materials on the history and culture of the region, and concentrating regional research in a single structure.

The result of practical activity is the participation of students in International and All-Russian conferences.
