Establishment history 20.07.2016 
Basic activity directions 

1. Conducting research to identify early symptoms of age-related neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, etc.), inhibit the development of neurodegeneration and search for mitigating or preventive measures against them.

2. Study of the relationship between the structure, dynamics and function of biomolecules, the genetic and biochemical basis of internal and external signals of the network that regulate cellular metabolism: study of interactions between protein-protein and protein-nucleic acid (protein-DNA, protein-RNA).

3. Localization and detection of mutations in genes encoding receptor and protein kinases that cause cancer, and conduct research to take promising steps to eliminate or suppress the uncontrolled proliferation caused by these mutations.

4. Mathematical modeling of multicomponent kinetic processes in biological systems: study of the mechanisms of genetic regulation of metabolic networks in humans and model organisms; Mathematical modeling, prediction of cancer duration and the creation of appropriate diagnostic systems for determining the principal genetic factors that cause the formation of cancer cells.

5. Immunological studies for the creation of fusion cells (hybridomas) and the production of monoclonal antibodies are planned as an important research direction.

Main scientific achievements 

The mutual effect of fibroin molecule with rhodamine 6G molecule has been studied and indicated that, every fibroin molecule combines in itself about 5 molecules of rhodamine-6G, which helps avoid fibroin aggregation. Such system can be a good model for treatment of amyloid diseases. Tomato included into the family of Solanasea has been studied when exposed to high salinity and lack of water through hybrid compounds of plant-origin W-box genes WRKY33 (A and B), AP2 family genes and Norzern, in situ and Western hybrid compounds of expression profile of ERF5 gene.It was found out that, the members of both superfamily have various tissue-specific expression profile in the given condition.

4.46% (p>0.05) reduction was found in the ability of erythrocytes to combine hemoglobin oxygen ligand (Hb) in comparison with control of lysate solution, 1.75% (p>0.05) in the ability to separate relatively Hb ligands from itself, 12.58% (p>0.05) increase in the ratio that characterizes the potential movement of methyl bridges reflecting the conformative changes of pyrol rings of Hb and 11.67% (p<0.05) reduction in the ratio that reflects relative amount of oksiHb.
