TSU student will design new methods of cancer diagnostics in France

TSU postgraduate student Valentin Kupriyanov has won a scholarship from the Vernadsky Foundation, given by the Russian and the French government to young scientists to write a dissertation under joint guidance. The young researcher will learn technologies of biophotonics and machine learning at TSU and Université de Lorraine. Both universities actively use these technologies to diagnose cancer more quickly. Valentin Kupriyanov will develop a new method of identifying malignant skin neoplasms, including melanoma.

“Combining technologies of biophotonics and machine learning opens a whole new world of possibilities for solving various problems of diagnostics,” says Valentin Kupriyanov, postgraduate student at the TSU Faculty of Physics, graduate of the autonomous master’s degree program Biophotonics. “I started learning these instruments while studying in the TSU master’s program. Thanks to the scholarship, I can study these technologies at two leading universities – TSU and Université de Lorraine. They both closely collaborate with research universities that specialize in oncology treatment and diagnostics, so these universities have a unique opportunity to implement AI machine learning in real-life conditions and test new approaches in partner clinics.”
