The 81st Pirogov Conference came to an end


On April 25-27, the 81st All-Russian Pirogov Student Scientific Conference was held at SibMed. More than 350 people from six countries took part in it. 

For the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pirogov Conference returned to a traditional on-campus format. More than 1,500 people from different cities of Russia and other countries attended the event in offline and online formats.

The Conference is an opportunity for young scientists not only to learn something new in the research world, to present their scientific ideas and non-standard solutions to current problems, to receive feedback and comments from experienced colleagues, but also to develop effective presentation skills, learn how to work with criticism, as well as to find new acquaintances who may help with employment or scientific research. 

There were 40 sections where participants presented reports with the results of their own research in clinical, experimental and theoretical fields of medicine. Some reports were presented in English. For the first time, a section dedicated to the new coronavirus infection was introduced — "Covid-19: experience, achievements and new challenges" as a tribute to the era of scientific discoveries. The participants discussed a wide range of issues from virus research to vaccine development in an emergency. The best works of students will be awarded with diplomas of I, II, III degrees. Following the results of the conference, the organizers will publish a collection of scientific papers, the electronic version of which will be available on the website of the Pirogov Conference. 

During three days, the conference participants were also able to take part in Olympiads and competitions, diagnose a medical condition in a famous historical figure based on a real clinical case, test their first aid and resuscitation skills, listen to anti-scientific reports and debate with their authors at the Second Pirogov Anti-Conference or share their opinion on popular science literature from the field of medicine or biological sciences.  

As part of the conference, a plenary session was held with representatives of universities that received special grants in the Priority 2030 Program — SibMed, Sechenov University, BSMU, TPU, TSU, TUSUR.
