Main trends of science-and-research activity of the State Research Center of Applied Microbiology & Biotechnology

Science-and research activity of SRCAMB is carried out within Federal target programs, international projects and agreements of Ministry of Health and Welfare according to the following directions:

Epidemiological surveillance of especially dangerous infections

Study of mechanisms underlying outburst and sporadic incidence of diseases, as well as of reasons of import and spread of especially dangerous infections.

Prediction and modeling epidemic and epizootic cases.

Training personnel in treating issues on sanitary- and- epidemiological protection of the territory.

Improvement of strategy and tactics of prophylaxis and elimination of epidemically generated symptoms of most dangerous and socially important infections.

Development and improvement of strategy and tactics of specific and unspecific prophylaxis of especially dangerous infections.

Assessment of the efficacy of new promising methods and diagnostic and therapeutic means for especially dangerous infections.

Development of prophylactic and counter-epidemical measures in emergent cases; implementation of most sophisticated methods of diagnosis in emergency conditions.

Diagnostics, prophylaxis and treatment of bacterial infectious diseases

Design of next-generation diagnostic preparations to be used in highly responsive analyses.

Design of novel vaccines and therapeutics for prophylaxis and treatment of especially dangerous and socially significant infections on the bases of advances in genetics, immunology and biotechnology.

Development of experimentally substantiated therapeutics against especially dangerous infections and some other infectious diseases.

Development and improvement of production technologies for medicinal immonobiological formulations for prophylaxis, diagnosis and treatment of especially dangerous infections.

Biomedical aspects of especially dangerous and some other infectious diseases

Microbiology of pathogens responsible for especially dangerous and some other infections; molecular principles of their pathogenicity and immunogenicity.

Study of biomedical aspects of especially dangerous and socially significant diseases, including microbiology of pathogens, molecular bases of their pathogenicity and immunogenicity; immunopathogenesis of infectious diseases.

Elaboration of new principles and methods for indication and identification of pathogens, as well as for diagnosis and prophylaxis of especially dangerous and some other infections.

Information supply for research dealing with especially dangerous infections.

Biological safety & Bioterrorism counteraction

Elaborate theoretical principles of biosafety and informational-and-analytical provision of research focused on problem “Biological Safety & Bioterrorism counteraction”.

Performing works on improving methods and means allowing indication of biopathogens and making fast laboratory diagnostic procedure to determine infections caused by these pathogens.

Elaboration and improvement of training programs for specialists to deal with biological safety problems.

Setting up a training course for biosafety specialists.
