The major task of the Laboratory is to study the characteristics of the pathogenesis and clinical course of the most common gynecological diseases.

The Laboratory closely cooperates with medical departments of the Perinatal Centre, Children's Rehabilitation Clinic, Preclinical Translational Research Centre.

The Laboratory deals with a wide range of research tasks using methods of molecular biology, omics technologies, animal experiments, modern IT solutions.

Major research areas (2017—2019)

  • Robot-assisted oophorectomy and subsequent cryopreservation of ovarian tissue to preserve fertility in girls with cancer
  • Innovative approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of noncommunicable diseases of the female genital organs based on the methods of metabolomics and metagenomics.
  • Development and training of a neural network for analysis of medical images, primarily colposcopic ones

Collaboration, joint projects and grants

  • Karolinska Institute (Stockholm, Sweden)
    Project dedicated to the most common hereditary blood-clotting disorder Von Willebrand disease.
  • University of Perugia (Perugia, Italy)
    Possibilities of 3D-printing in perinatology and pediatrics.
  • Petersburg University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (St. Petersburg, Russia)
    Project aimed at studying potential biomarkers of clinically most significant gynecologic conditions, primarily endometriosis (using omics technologies and mass spectrometry).
  • Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (St. Petersburg, Russia)
    The current project is dedicated to computer analysis of medical images using machine learning methods: computer analysis of endoscopic mucosal images for the early diagnosis of gynecological cancers. A neural network model capable of differentiating images obtained by colposcopy was developed.
  • European University (St. Petersburg, Russia)
    Patient-centered approach in Russian health care: organizational challenges and opportunities for professionals.

Results of research

Разработан метод дериватизации нескольких классов соединений для их определения в образце биологического происхождения с помощью изобутилхлорформиата.

Metabolome project:

•Developed a derivatization method for several classes of compounds for their determination in a biological sample with isobutyl chloroformate.
•Validated the parameters of biological sample preparation for the determination of several classes of compounds, identified the parameters of water extraction and its advantages over other types of extraction.
•Identified the substances detected by the analysis of patient biological samples, determined the content ratio of 3 classes of specific metabolites in the affected tissues – mono- and dicarbonic acids, amino acids.
•The analytical reliability for selected metabolites was more than 85% with Lab Solutions (Shimadzu) software.

Oncofertility project:

We have developed a method for vitrification of ovarian tissue followed by orthotopic autotransplantation in an animal experiment. The results were summarized in an article published in a foreign peer-reviewed journal. The method is supposed to be implemented in clinical practice, primarily in patients receiving gonadotoxic treatment.
