Participation in the Medical Spring – 2020 Conference

The Medical Spring – 2020, Russian Scientific and Practical Conference with international participation took place on February 7-8, 2020 at Sechenov University (Moscow).

V. Momot and I. Rodionov, students of the 3rd year of the Federal State Autonomous Educational Institution of Higher Education, Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University, competed in the contest of works of Molecular Biology and Medical Genetics section. They made oral presentations, describing the results obtained on the FSBI RCMG Molecular Biology Laboratory base (Head of Laboratory is S. Kostyuk, Doctor of Biological Science).

Victoria Momot was involved in the “Analysis of mitochondria role in apoptosis regulation under the ionizing radiation in small and medium doses” study, supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research grant 18-34-00878 for young scientists and made an oral report: “Changes in the genes transcriptional activity under the oxidized DNA impact on healthy fibroblasts and fibroblasts with m14441T> C mutation in the ND6 mtDNA gene.”

Ivan Rodionov works in the laboratory in the group performing the state task set by the RF Ministry of Science and Higher Education - “Study of the nanomaterials impact on functional activity of the human cell genome”. He delivered an oral message: “The effect of isomers of C60 water-soluble derivatives of fullerene on synthesis of reactive oxygen intermediate in fibroblasts of a human lung embryo.”

Given the scientific novelty and practical significance of the reports, the Contest Committee awarded V. Momot and I. Rodionov the first and third places.

S.V. Kostyuk, Head of the FSBI RCMG Molecular Biology Laboratory: “Working with students of Sechenov First 1st MSMU, we became convinced once again in the high level of training provided by this University. The students showed interest in research work, which allowed them to receive a high jury rating. We are confident that the studies conducted in the Molecular Biology Laboratory will allow them to identify their possible future activities.”
