Pharmaceutical Biotechnology in VyatSU

The University has created one of the largest scientific-educational biotechnological bases among the Russian universities; it is provided by its own Supercomputer Сenter and modern analytical laboratories. This is the foundation for high level research and training of professionals able to work in modern production facilities.

Laboratories and research centers of VyatSU:

- Laboratories of the Department of Biotechnology,

- Laboratories of the Department of Microbiology,

- Research Laboratory "Biologically Active Compounds and Biopolymers",

- Research Laboratory "Physiology of Microorganisms" of the Institute of Physiology (Komi Science Centre),

- Research Laboratory "Molecular Biology and Diagnostics"

- Scientific and educational center for nanotechnology,

- Scientific and educational center for bioengineering,

- Scientific and educational center for supercomputing technologies and systems.


Scientific research of the Department of Biotechnology in Pharmaceutical Biotechnology area

Biotechnology is characterized by active research. At the moment there are about twenty research projects, supported by grants from various sources or executed the real economy orders.

1) Genetic and protein engineering, cellular technology

2) Functional Materials and Nanobiotechnology


Educational activity

1) Pre-University Training Programs

2) Basic education programs in the following directions:

• Bachelor’s degree:

19.03.01 Biotechnology (profile "Pharmaceutical Biotechnology")

• Master’s degree:

19.04.01 Biotechnology (Programs "Pharmaceutical Biotechnology", "Molecular and Cellular Biotechnology")

3) post-graduate programs:

4) additional professional education programs:

• advanced training program "Production of blood products" (293 hours);

• professional retraining program "Development of immunobiological products and technologies for their production" (600 hours).

Biotechnology is a worldwide rapidly growing research trend. Based on knowledge in the fields of microbiology, biochemistry, genetics, genetic engineering, immunology, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering it uses biological objects (microorganisms, animal and plants cells) or molecules (proteins, enzymes, nucleic acids, etc.) for industrial production of products and goods for people.

Biotechnologistis a qualified specialist. Today Biotechnology is one of the most demanded specialists not only in Russia but also abroad. It is hard to imagine a modern industry and any area of human activity without using biotechnology achievements.

Biotechnology specialists (after graduating from the University) can work in the following areas:

- Enterprises of biotechnological, chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries (e.g. engineer, researcher);

- In biological, chemical, environmental, and other laboratories (e.g. engineer, researcher);

- In scientific and research institutions, design institutes of bioindustry (e.g. engineer, researcher);

- In higher education institutions (e.g. teacher).


Employment of specialists

One of the main advantages of selecting "Biotechnology" is guaranteed job opportunities.
