From June 28 to July 2, 2021, in the village of Divnomorskoye, the face-to-face International Scientific Conference "Radiation and Scattering of Electromagnetic Waves" (RSEMW'21) will be held. Within the framework of this conference, our laboratory organizes a new thematic section on the theory of light transport and scattering in turbid media as applied to the problems of biomedical optics. We invite everyone to participate.

On Friday 29.01.2021 at MONIKI, chaired by the deputy Director for Science and International Relations, Doctor of Medical Sciences, prof. E.P. Kakorina, the intramural-distance and one-day scientific-practical conference (seminar) "A new comprehensive non-invasive technology for assessing central and peripheral hemodynamics in patients with a therapeutic profile" held. The event was organized jointly by MONIKI and JSC "ELAMED" and was dedicated to the completion of a two-center scientific and clinical study with a new prototype of the device for non-invasive rapid assessment of vascular complications of diabetes.

Our researcher, Aleksey Glazkov, a doctor by high education, on 21/12/2020 defended his thesis on non-invasive laser Doppler flowmetry for the degree of candidate of medical sciences (Ph.D.) in the specialty 03.03.01 - Physiology. Congratulations and wishes for a continued success!
