In the framework of the project “Talents for Bioengineering” school workshops held every year since 2004. The school welcomes students from regional universities that have passed the competitive selection based on the results of an extramural creative competition and distance learning. Undergraduate and graduate students of Moscow universities and research institutes also actively participate in the workshops.
Within the event leading scientists conduct lectures, among them: Academician Michail Kirpichnikov, Academician Konstantin Skryabin, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Evgeny Severin, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Vladimir Debabov, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Sergei Nedospasov, Academician Yriy Buziashvili, Professor Valery Varlamov, Professor E. Korotkov, Professor E. Kochieva, Professor Nikolai Ravin and many others.
Education excursions to laboratories of the Institute of Bioengineering and other research institutions as well interviews with potential scientific advisers are conducted.
Within the past 10 years over 400 students from 30 regional universities took part in the school workshops. About 100 most talented and motivated students carried out their graduation and master’s thesis in laboratories of the Institute of Bioengineering and other relevant research institutions in Moscow. In order to improve the educational level of students in specific branches of science, the students attend courses of lectures at the Department of Biology of the Moscow State University.
