Basic scientific research is conducted according to the State Task of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation in “Investigation of the intrauterine fetal development mechanisms and their implementation in the postnatal period in the form of cardiovascular disease and diabetes risk”.
The key activities:
- Studying the fetal growth retardation mechanisms, and their implementation in the postnatal period in the form of cardiovascular and endocrine diseases increased risk
- Studying the role of IGFs GH, IGF-1, IGF-2, IGFBP-3 and insulin in formation of metabolic and endocrine disorders in children after intrauterine growth and development retardation
- Study of angiogenesis and vasculogenesis features in children with intrauterine growth retardation syndrome, their dynamic assessment in the postnatal period, the identification of cardiovascular system predictors.
- Study of the cellular mechanisms of programming system diseases in children with intrauterine growth retardation syndrome.
Over 2013 the Laboratory trained 72 neonatologists in the cycle “Reanimation and intensive care in neonatology with practical skills in the Simulation Centre”, 72 hours.
The Laboratory of physiology and pathology of the newborn also conducted primary training cycles (504 hours) and qualification upgrading courses (144 hours, 288 hours) in “Neonatology” for physicians all over the country on the basis of the Perinatal Centre of Federal Almazov Medical Research Centre.
The Laboratory staff analyzed 600 case reports of babies death from different regions of the country, the results of the analysis are brought to the respective regions.
The Laboratory staff has advisory work in the Perinatal Centre of Federal Almazov Medical Research Centre.
