Research directions during the postgraduate studentship

Discovery, extraction, determination of structure and synthesis of biologically active matters of different classes: peptides, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, low-molecular bioregulators. Research on molecular mechanisms of action of these compounds and reciprocal structure-function interrelation.

Molecular mechanisms of biomolecules’ recognition and signals transmission in biological systems, including researches of:

  • molecular basis of active transport of ions across biological membranes;
  • membrane proteins responsible to active transport and signaling, and their genes;
  • molecular mechanisms of nerve conduction;
  • principles of biomolecules’ folding;
  • ways to targeted regulation of protein-substrate (peptide, carbohydrate, etc.) interaction.

Structure and functions of nucleic acids:

  • structural research of human chromosome;
  • synthesis of genes of biologically important proteins;
  • study of genes which are in charge of early stages of organisms development.

Molecular and cellar basis of immunology and immunooncology:

  • research of molecular and cellar basis of immune reaction’ propagation and forming of immunological memory;
  • research of mechanism of immunomodulatory and anticancer activity of natural and synthetic compounds.

Fundamental and applied aspects of biotechnology:

  • creation of strains that produce biologically important proteins and peptides;
  • creation of transgenic animals and plants with certain properties;
  • design of artificial vaccines;
  • creation of producers of monoclonal antibodies for new diagnostic systems and medicines.

Molecular aspects of ecology:

  • development of methods of analysis and purification of different objects from toxic substances and mutagens.
