Pustylnyak Vladimir
Main research area is related to the study of gene expression regulation in physiological and pathophysiological processes involving nuclear receptors. Alongside above-mentioned research work on the molecular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity underlying learning and memory is also carried out.
Andrey Pokrovsky
In recent years, professor Pokrovsky has been conducting research on searching for and studying compounds with antitumor and antiviral activity. New derivatives of higher terpenoid group having antitumor activity were found. 6 patents for new groups of compounds with antitumor activity were obtained. It has been found that their mechanism of action is associated with the induction of apoptosis in tumor cells. Also, under the supervision of A. G. Pokrovsky the development of safe systems based on pseudoviruses simulating viral infections (filoviruses - Marburg, Ebola, orthomyxoviruses - flu retrovirus - HIV) was carried out. Pseudovirus systems were also used to investigate the mechanism of action of novel compounds having antiviral activity against influenza A virus (H5N1), HIV.

Academic supervisor, International Tomography Center, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences Head of Laboratory "Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry, Biology and Medicine". A leader in the research field of magnetic phenomena in medicine and biology. Lenin Prize (1986), RF State Prize in Science and Technology (1994), the Order of Merit (2002), the Order "For Merit to the Fatherland" IV degree (2007).
Mikhail Voyevoda
Actively engaged in the study of the role of hereditary factors in a variety of human diseases, the development of new methods for molecular genetic studies. Key research areas: molecular genetic basis of multifactorial and hereditary diseases, molecular epidemiological characteristics of the gene pool diversity in the population of North and Central Asia, gene pool evolution in ancient and modern ethnic groups of North Asia, development of methods for molecular genetic analysis of the variability in human genome. Research conducted by Voyevoda contributed significantly to drawing the attention of a large number of researchers in Siberia to genetic problems in human pathology.
Nariman Salakhutdinov
Specialist in the field of chemistry of natural compounds, including catalytic conversion of plant metabolites, medicinal chemistry. As a result of research simple and clear schemes to quickly carry out a priori estimate of the desired reaction parameters or characteristics of the molecules under study were suggested. Innovative medicine based on synthetic transformations of plant metabolites were developed.
Marx Stark
Is actively engaged in studying the theory and practice of biofeedback, technologies based on the mechanisms of self-regulation of functions. Biofeedback systems created under M. B. Stark leadership are widely represented in the clinics in Russia, CIS countries, Germany, Italy, Spain, Israel, the USA and Malaysia. At this stage, M. B. Stark is developing medical and diagnostic technology of interactive neurostimulation based on the results of noninvasive synergistic brain fMRI, EEG mapping.
Alexander Savostianov
Area of interest: research related to the neurophysiology of motor control, regulation of emotional perception, speech recognition, neurophysiological reasons for interindividual differences and the tendency to mental pathologies. Alexander Savostyanov et al studied the EEG correlates of personal anxiety and tendency to depression. In 2013-2016 A. Savostyanov organized scientific expeditions in Siberia and Mongolia to study ethno-cultural characteristics associated with the risk of mental illness in the indigenous population of Siberia. During the expeditions, ethnic differences in the role of molecular genetic markers of the serotonin system in the formation of the level of anxiety and a tendency to depression among the indigenous peoples of Siberia were identified for the first time. During the expedition the EEG research was conducted for the first time to study the features of brain activity in the process of language recognition in the peoples of Siberia and Mongolia. Specificity of EEG reactions in the representatives of the Turkic-speaking peoples were detected associated with the perception of an aggressive and disturbing language in comparison with Russian.
