Participation in State Assignments 

The Laboratory for Surgery of Congenital and Hereditary Diseases contributes to the state assignment on the topic “Study of genetic basis and development of new diagnostic and treatment approaches for isolated and combined congenital anomalies”  jointly with the Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics.

Our specialists take part in the assignment on the topic “Cultivation of MSCs (mesenchymal stem cells) from diseased tissue removed during surgery.” The results of the study have revealed that stem cells spontaneously differentiate into brush cells of the alveolar epithelium in 4 out of 17 cultures obtained from 17 samples of lung tissue.

International collaboration
