Center of Regenerative Medicine is opened in Krasnodar

Professor Macchiarini and young scientists demonstrated the equipment, acquired in the frames of the grant of the Government of the Russian Federation, and told the guests about the research that will be carried out in the new laboratory. That is a wide range of works on regeneration mechanisms investigation, tissue-engineered transplants and bioengineered organs creation. The University’s basic research laboratory will be in a close connection with the clinical laboratory, based in the Regional clinical hospital 1. This provides the possibility to implement translational research in the following way: laboratory – clinic – laboratory. 

The center of regenerative medicine of KSMU was built and equipped in unbelievably short terms – it took less than a year. Today this laboratory is one of the best not only in Russia, but in Europe as well. “Even my laboratory at Karolinska Institute is worse in a number of respects”, - said Professor Macchiarini to the journalists.

However, the state-of-the-art equipment is the first stage, it is still needed to bring life into the laboratory, and this kind of equipment requires high-qualified specialists. This was one of the points of the III All-Russian School for young scientists «Global experience of heart and lungs bioengineering», which was carried out at the University on November 8. The young scientists, participants of the grant who had been trained at the leading Russian and European centers, presented their first scientific papers. Roman Deev – medical director of the Human Stem Cells Institute and executive editor of the journal “Cell transplantology and tissue engineering” (Moscow) – shared the experience of cell technology training of the young specialists from KSMU.

The grant leading scientist, Professor Paolo Macchiarini presented his lecture “Bioengineering intrathoracic organs and tissues”, in which he stated his views on regenerative medicine development prospects in the world and in Russia.
