The laboratory is developing a new method of personalized drug therapy for cancer patients, which includes establishment of a three-dimensional culture of tumor organoids, followed by a personalized test of chemotherapeutic and targeted drugs to determine the most effective therapy for each individual patient.
We maintain cooperation with National Medical Research Radiological Center, Shemyakin–Ovchinnikov Institute of bioorganic chemistry RAS, Scientific and Technical Center BioClinicum and University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf.
The competition is open to HSE University research units planning to conduct joint projects with academic institutions, research organisations and state academic centres of the Russian Federation. Applications are open until May 20, 2022.
Two international laboratories will be created at the HSE University Institute of Electronics and Mathematics, one at the Faculty of Geography and Geoinformation Technology, and one at the Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology. The four projects were selected from a total of 17 applications.
The 5th Sechenov International Biomedical Summit (SIBS - 2021) was held on November 9-10, 2021 at FSAU VO Sechenov Russian Ministry of Health (Sechenov University). It is one of the most authoritative forums in the country in the field of advanced bioengineering, regenerative and personalized medicine.
Members of the International Laboratory of Microphysiological Systems and the Laboratory of Molecular Physiology participated in RECOMB 2021
25th International Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology (RECOMB 2021) was held online on August 29th - September 2nd. Staff of the Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology - Stepan Nersisyan, Alexey Galatenko, Diana Maltseva and Alexander Tonevitsky participated in a poster session with the report «miRGTF-net: Integrative miRNA-gene-TF network analysis reveals key drivers of breast cancer recurrence»
The International Laboratory of Microphysiological Systems at the 11th World Congress on Alternatives and Uses of Animals in Natural Sciences (WC11)
Alexander G. Tonevitsky, Leading Research Fellow of the International Laboratory of Microphysiological Systems, took part at the 11th World Congress on Alternatives and Use of Animals in Natural Sciences (WC11)
HSE University has announced an open project competition to create experimental research laboratories in the natural sciences. The competition is open to research projects in the fields of biophotonics and ageing (biology, physiology, biomedicine, biostatistics, and bioinformatics.)
HSE University researchers assessed the effectiveness of the T-cell immune response to 11 variants of SARS-CoV-2. Their findings have been published in Nucleic Acids Research.
An international team of researchers including Alexander Tonevitsky, Professor at HSE’s Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology, found that pituitary hormones may produce different effects on the left and right sides of the body following a traumatic brain injury. These differences can accelerate the development of motor disorders. Researchers are trying to determine whether treatment that blocks the corresponding hormones can counteract these effects. The results of the study were published in the journal eLife.
Researchers from HSE University have discovered nucleotide sequences characteristic of microRNA isoforms (microRNAs with errors). The discovery will help predict errors in microRNA behaviour and create drugs that can detect targets (such as viruses) more effectively. The results of the study have been published in the RNA Biology journal.
