“Molecular Medicine” strategic unit is designed to generate and implement systemic knowledge in the field of molecular-cell principles of pathology and clinical pathophysiology, and related disciplines.


  • Generation of new knowledge in the field of molecular-cell pathology and pathological physiology.
  • Theoretical justification of innovative approaches to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of socially significant tumor and non-tumor (infectious and non-infectious) diseases using molecular cell technologies.
  • Development of interdisciplinary areas of fundamental and applied biomedical research on the etiology, pathogenesis and sanogenesis of relevant diseases of an infectious and non-infectious nature.
  • Generation of breakthrough scientific results in the field of molecular-cell biology that relate to sources of the emergence, development and outcomes of socially significant diseases, and later implementation of the obtained knowledge in medical education and health care systems.


  • Molecular factors of dysregulation of homeostasis of immunocompetent blood cells in socially significant diseases. (Council for Grants of the President of the Russian Federation 2018-2020)
  • Galectins in colorectal cancer: a role in the dysregulation of adaptive immunity and significance of diagnostics (Council for Grants of the President of the Russian Federation 2019-2020)
  • Distant and local mechanisms of generation of various subpopulations of monocytes and their role in the pathogenesis of ischemic cardiomyopathy (Russian Foundation for Basic Research no. 18-015-00160\18, 2018-2020)
  • Functional phenotype, molecular mechanisms of differentiation, and cytokine secretory activity of monocytes / macrophages in pulmonary tuberculosis (Russian Foundation for Basic Research no. 19-315-90018\19, 2019-2021)
  • The effect of implantation of thin cuticle based on polylactic acid on the morphology of the cornea with bullous keratopathy (Russian Foundation for Basic Research no. 19-415-703005\19, 2019-2020)
