International Research Centers at ITM

Genomics and Bioinformatics Lab

General information 

The lab was organized by the Institute of Translational Medicine together with Molecular Biology and Genetics Department of “Federal Almazov North-West Research Center.” Genomics and Bioinformatics Lab aims to develop new analysis algorithms for biomedical data bulk resulting from up-to-date sequencing, one of the newest highly-efficient molecular genetic methods.

Activities

Anna A. Kostareva, MD, PhD, Molecular Biology and Genetics Department

Alexander Kanapin, PhD, Computational Genomics Head, Department of Oncology, University of Oxford

 

Metabolism and Trace Elements Lab

General information 

The lab was organized by the Institute of Translational Medicine and Institute of Experimental Medicine.

Metabolism and Trace elements Lab provides a variety of interdisciplinary research in biomedicine and solid state physics.

Functional materials design, which includes metallic nanoparticle making and application, is a rapidly developing area of fundamental and applied science. ITMO University researchers study a variety of nanoparticles with different physical-chemical characteristics, biological properties of which are poorly researched. Thus it is necessary to assess copper and silver nanoparticles` toxicity and bioavailability in order to estimate their capacity to regulate copper quantity.

Clinical Decision Support Systems

General information 

The lab was organized by the Institute of Translational Medicine and “Federal Almazov North-West Research Center.”

The lab aims to research models and ways of clinical decision support systems in the field of personalized medicine.

Clinical decision support systems lab develops substantial foundation for newest IT systems that will be used for CDSS systems. Lab`s research activities include big data processing methods and dynamic knowledge base development using computerized learning as well as predictive modeling.

The main focus of the lab is to develop cloud-based software for the new-generation clinical decision support systems.
