– the basis for high definition visualization of inner human structure;

– principles for contactless diagnostics of diseases;

– bases of minimally invasive surgery of biotissues using femtosecond lasers.

Laboratory for Translational Cell and Molecular Biomedicine

An interdisciplinary research laboratory that unites experimental approaches of cellular and molecular biology, immunology, protein biochemistry, synthetic chemistry, clinical research and modern methods of microscopy. Research activity of the laboratory is based on the concept of the solution of critical fundamental research tasks in the sphere of biomedicine and translation of fundamental scientific achievements for development of innovative approaches to preventive measures, early diagnostics and effective personalized therapy of the most widespread and dangerous illnesses (oncological, cardiovascular and diabetes), as well as development of innovative chemical-biological technologies for regenerative medicine. 

Laboratory for Medical Plants, Phytochemistry and Experimental Pharmacology

Conducting the research on the wide range of modern medical issues, aiming at production of original antitumoral, antimetastatic, hemoreologic, cardioprotective, nootropic, antiulcer preparations on the basis of material from introduced plants and extracted biologically active entities. Research results can be used in the therapy of socially important diseases.

Laboratory of Superfine Material Biosafety

Development of methodology and methods of determination and quantitative assessment of biological danger of nanomaterials and nanoparticles. Research on the possibility and danger of translocation of nanoparticles in the organism via food chains. 

Master’s programmes

Data Mining & Bioinformatics

Program Description

Degree: Master in Applied Mathematics and Informatics

Specialization: Data Science & Bioinformatics

Learning mode: Full-time

Duration of study: 2 years, totally 120 ECTS

Language of instruction: Russian, English

The Master's Program “Data Mining and Bioinformatics” is a unique pilot program, developed in accordance with the innovative strategy of TSU. A key difference of this program from the traditional ones is its distinct interdisciplinary nature. This master's program is absolutely new to Siberia for now.

The main goal of this program is to train professionals in data mining and applied aspects of bioinformatics who are in high demand for carriers both in science and business.

Three key features of this program are:

  • unique pilot program, created within the “road map” of Tomsk State University development program;

  • focusing on forming teams of deficient multi-disciplinary specialists in the field of computer science, information technologies, applied math and also applied aspects of bioinformatics;

  • strong scientific background in high-performance data processing in remote sensing and geoscience, natural language processing, bioscience etc. (projects funded by the RF Government, Russian Scientific Fund, Russian Foundation for Basic Research etc. ).
