The Minister arrived on 23rd August.
Firstly, Rector Ilshat Gafurov informed him about KFU’s readiness to open the Center for Precision and Regenerative Medicine. The Center will comprise 25 hospital beds, wards of noninvasive surgery, traumatology, orthopedics, gastroenterology, and neurological rehabilitation. Its strategic partners are RIKEN (Japan), Weill Cornell Medicine (USA), and the University of Nottingham (United Kingdom).
Private investment attests to the Center’s effectiveness. As the Head of KFU-RIKEN Joint Lab Oleg Gusev said, “Together with our Japanese colleagues, we think that there should an ecosystem of several research groups from around the world. We call this program Regulatory Genomics. As of now, there have already been results in three different areas.”
The guest then proceeded to the Gene and Cell Technology Lab. The lab focuses on several important research directions, notably, pharmacists currently work on a very promising anti-tumor medication.
Minister Kotyukov expressed his approval of the chosen strategy.
