The scientific team of the Research Centre for Medical Genetics received a grant from the President of the Russian Federation
The scientific team of the Research Centre for Medical Genetics became the winner of the competition for the right to receive grants from the President of the Russian Federation for state support of young Russian scientists and leading scientific schools of the Russian Federation in the field of "Medical Sciences".
Project name: "Analysis of the frequency of carriage of nucleotide variants in genetically rare forms of autosomal recessive endocrine diseases among Ossetians and Buryats."
The composition of the scientific group:
- Makretskaya Nina Alekseevna – head of the group, Ph.D.
- Filatova Alexandra Yuryevna – Researcher, Laboratory of Functional Genomics, the Research Centre for Medical Genetics
- Ionova Sofya Aidarovna - Junior Researcher, Laboratory of Genetic Epidemiology, the Research Centre for Medical Genetics
As part of the project, it is planned to determine the estimated frequency of carriage of rare diseases of the endocrine system among the indigenous population of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania and the Republic of Buryatia: 3-β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase deficiency among Ossetians, nephrogenic diabetes insipidus and 5-α-reductase deficiency among Buryats.
