BSMU is one of the largest medico-scientific centers in Republic of Bashkortostan; it cooperates closely with other research organizations of Ufa.
The research work of BSMU is carried out in all its departments, in the Central Scientific Research Laboratory (CSRL), in different Scientific and Educational Complexes (SEC), and in the Specialized Scientific Centers of Ministry of Public Health in RB and RF. The research work has the following scientific trends: problems of the main diseases because of ecologically unfavorable conditions in RB; maternity and child protection; finding and studying the medicines, the elaboration of materials for medical equipment; scientific and methodological issues on the increasing the efficiency of education in professional medical institutions.
Among the most important scientific achievements in BSMU, one can single out the following: the drugs for hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome – “Anandin” and “Yodantipirin” which are allowed to be used by the Ministry of Health of Russia (№ 269, 14.07.2000); registration certificates of Russia Ministry of Health are got for application and production of “Oksimetiluracil” powder and “Immureg” tablets; the Committee’s decree on a new medical technique approved of the production of a new antibacterial sutured preparatus “Aboktolat”; there is serial production of wide spectrum chlorus and phenol free disinfectant “Dezavik” (registered certificate of Russia Ministry of Health # 0304-55/3-200, 10.08.2001). The experiment “Factor of cosmic flight influence upon the free radical oxidation state in human organism” is included into the 4th expedition program in the International Cosmic Station (ICS).
The priorities of the investigation results in the University during the reported period are confirmed by considerable quality of patents (251). Monographies (105), methodical recommendations (183), articles in native (765) and foreign (58) magazines – all this testifies the high scientific activity of BSMU.
Authorized scientific schools, famous both in our country and abroad, have been created in the University. University’s Surgeon school was formed mainly as the school of abdominal surgery.
There are the following approaches within this school:
•micro-invasive surgery of abdominal organs (prof. V. Timerbulatov). The paper “Open endosurgical operations” (V. Timerbulatov, R.Garipov) is presented for a RF Government Prize reward in science and technique field. The paper results are demanded in more than 100 medical prophylactic establishments of Russia;
•associative surgical diseases of abdomen (prof. Sakhautdinov);
•regenerative abdominal surgery (prof. M.A. Nartailakov).
The Central Research Laboratory (CRL) is the main scientific unit of the University, performing mainly the experimental research by chair workers and RB medical institutions. Various kinds of research are done in the CRL: toxicological, immunological, microbiological, pharmacological, radioimmunological, chemoluminescentic analysis, etc.
The activity of Students’ Scientific Society (SSC) and Young Scientists’ Association (YSA) is one the most important for the University Administration. There are 49 scientific circles with more than 500 students (working there). 17-19 sections are functioning during the annually final scientific conferences for students and young scientists of BSMU. Collections of papers are issued on the results of the conference. 300 students articles are published each year in average. 25% of them in cooperation with a teacher. In September, 2001, the Students’ Scientific Society (SSS) site is created in the Internet (WWW. STUDENT.NAROD.RU). Every year SSS members become prize winners at the congresses and receive President scholarship.
In order to coordinate the international collaboration, the Department of International Affairs and External Economic Activities was founded. BSMU collaborates in several directions: program activity of the Worldwide Organization of Healthcare; participation in international scientific projects; creative cooperation with foreign colleagues; conducting of scientific conferences and congresses with the participation of foreign specialists in BSMU; participation of scientists n forums abroad; cooperation with foreign firms and teaching foreign high post-graduates.
