The Laboratory of «Medical and Physical researches» ("MedPhys Research" Laboratory) is one of the scientific divisions in the Institute in a frame of the Scientific Department. In our opinion, it is the first and while unique in Russian Federation the profiled medical-physical laboratory created in a large scientific medical Center for a specialization on the not-ionizing-radiating medical physics. The Laboratory was organized since January 2009 on the order of No.563 of the director of Institute from 27.10.08 on the basis of the decision of the Academic council of MONIKI No.8 from 20.10.08 for the purpose of development of fundamental scientific researches in the Institute on boundaries of different areas of medicine, physics and biology, expansion of interdepartmental interaction of MONIKI with leading scientific institutes of systems of Russian Academy of Sciences, higher educational institutions as well as with both other enterprises and organizations which are engaged in development of new medical technologies, new high technology methods, apparatus and devices for medicine.
The Laboratory consists of a number of scientific groups, department of experimental animals (vivarium), group of the technical personnel, laboratorians and other subordinated middle- and low-qualificated medical personnel. Head of the Laboratory is Dr. Dmitry Alekseevich Rogatkin, Ph.D. in physics & mathematics, as well as Sci. Dr. in Technical sciences, one of the leading medical physicists in Russia. In the Laboratory, all scientific work in the department of experimental animals and the scientific group of nanotechnology and biosafety is headed by the skilled expert, Ph.D. in biological sciences, the leading scientific employee in the Laboratory, Dr. Elena Nikolaevna Petritskaya. Direct daily care of animals in the Laboratory is provided by Alla Andreevna Rudakova – the deserved and senior worker of the MONIKI’s vivarium - together with veterinary doctor Nataliya Olegovna Koval' and vivarium attendants (laboratory assistants) Viktor Adol'fovich Borshinskiy, Ludmila Leonidovna Zavisho and Kseniya Sergeevna Krygina.The head nurse Ludmila Vasil'evna Sorokina supervises over the work of vivarium's workers. A group of researchers in the direction of regenerative medicine and experimental clinical research collaboration with other research departments of our Institute is headed by a Ph.D., Scientific Secretary of our Institute, medical doctor Dr. Dmitriy Aleksandrovich Kulikov. In profile groups of different areas of our research a number of young research fellows work, namely: specialist in medical equipment, senior researcher, Ph.D. Denis Grigorievich Lapitan, researcher, medical doctor Aleksey Andreevich Glazkov, young researcher, medical doctor Polina Aleksandrovna Kulikova, young researcher, medical physicist Irina Andreevna Raznitcina, young researcher, zoologist Alexandra Leonidovna Ivlieva. Senior laboratory assistant, physiologist Dariya Sergeevna Selivanova, senior laboratory assistance, veterinary expert Mariya Vladimirovna Lopatina, senior laboratory assistance, post-graduate student Mikhail Makmatov-Rys', as well as medical laboratorian-assistant Faina Fedorovna Serenko, engineer-technician Nadezhda Viktorovna Smirnova, engineer, Ph.D. Andrey Petrovich Tarasov and technicians Anastasiya Gerjik together with Anastasiya Parnovskaya assist all of them with their daily work.
Main scientific research line in the Laboratory is the research on laser methods and devices of Noninvasive Medical Spectrophotometry (NMS). The MONIKI’s scientific School and scientific achievements in this issue is considered today as one of the skilled in Russia. A support of our studies on NMS by four grants of Russian Foundation of Basic Research (RFBR), by two State contracts No.02.512.11.2307 и No.16.512.11.2003, by three grants of Moscow Regional Government, by one international grant No. 251531, project "MediLase" in a frame of European international collaboration program FP-7, as well as by a number of contracts of different Russian and foreign organizations from the real sectors of economy became the best confirmation of that. A number of devices for NMS, created with the participation of the laboratory, were launched onto the real market of medical equipment. In other areas, the laboratory conducts systematic research in the field of toxicity and safety of medical techniques and drugs based on nanoparticles and nanotechnology, investigating cognitive functions and their disorders in humans and animals under the influence of nanoparticles. Also, we work in the field of the regenerative medicine. For several years, the pharmacokinetics of bioresorbable polymer microcapsules as potential new carriers of drugs with prolonged action was studied under the RFBR grant, as well. Autonomous mobile service medical robots, scientific and engineering foundations of creation and functioning of such robots in clinics, the study of the possibility of creating technical systems with artificial consciousness have become a new, young and promising direction of research in the laboratory in recent years.
