Brief Information on the Unit

Scientific-Research Laboratory center (SRLC) is the part of NC JSC “Semey Medical University” (NC JSC “SMU”) departments of science, which was established as intradepartmental experimental laboratory in 1976. E.N. Shatskiy was the first head of the laboratory.

In 1990, by the order of the Ministry of Health of Kazakh SSR, the laboratory was reorganized into the Central Research-Scientific Laboratory, where were provided researches with developing scientific-grounded recommendations for human organism protection against environmental hazards.

The following persons were heads of the laboratory in different periods: d.m.s., Professor S.B. Sadykov (1990 – 1994), d.m.s., Professor V.I. Kravcov (18.02.1994 – 01.11.1994), c.m.s., Assoc. Prof. G.A. Nedostoyeva.

In 1996, by the order of the Ministry of Health RK, Central Research-Scientific Laboratory was dissolved and Intradepartmental Experimental Laboratory was newly reestablished. In March 2007 laboratory was renamed as scientific-experimental. From 1994 to 2008, G.A. Nedostoyeva was the Head of the Laboratory.

In 2008, Scientific-Experimental Laboratory was renamed into United Educational and Scientific Laboratory. The head of laboratory from 2008 till 2009 was Godzelich Ye.V. From 2011 till 2019 the head of united educational and scientific laboratory was c.m.s. Aukenov N.E.

In 2019 united educational and scientific laboratory was renamed as Scientific-Research Laboratory center.

Since March 26, 2019 PhD Massabayeva Meruyert Ravilyevna has been working as the main scientific researcher of the scientific-research Laboratory center.

Laboratory is responsible to teach students to learn practical skills in accordance with the requirements of SES RK and participates in the planned training of scientific personnel for the medical University.

Scientific-Research Laboratory center of NC JSC “SMU” is intended for:

  • To make students aware of the possibilities of the modern diagnostic and treatment equipment.
  • To demonstrate and teach practical skills to students and test their medical knowledge in accordance with SOES and curriculums.
  • To prepare scientific staff for the university from among faculty members, master’s degree students and residents.
  • To provide students with research-scientific activity.

The main purposes of the laboratory:

  1. Planning, organization of educational process on acquaintance, working off and delivery of practical skills on the modern equipment for laboratory and functional diagnostics with departments.
  2. To plan and organize research activities provided by the curriculum and according to requests for scientific researches in the SRLC.
  3. To organize and introduce scientific and methodical developments, innovative technologies aimed at improving academic, scientific and methodical activities.
  4. To take a part in modernization of academic process in accordance with modern requirements for implementation of development strategy of university’s academic activity.

The laboratory consists of six divisions:

  1. Biochemical division, located at the Department of biochemistry and chemical disciplines named by S.O. Tapbergenov and on the basis of the SRLC, where the research of metabolism (determination of enzyme activities, quantification of metabolites in animals and man, biochemical analysis of blood) are conducted.
  2. Morphological division, located at the Department of pathological anatomy and forensic medicine named by Yu.V. Pruglo, here are the manufacture of histological preparations and improvement of existing and testing of new developed research methods are carried out.
  3. Hygiene division, located at the Department of nutrition and hygiene disciplines. This division conducts research on the production parameter of the microclimate, illumination, noise of industrial enterprises in order to study the complex effect of harmful production factors on the body.
  4. Physiological division, located on the basis of the NC JSC “SMU” University hospital and the city hospital №2, at the departments of physiological disciplines, neurology and internal diseases. On the basis of the physiological unit carried out researches, such as: determination the performance of the cardiovascular system (ECG), the degree of blood supply on the different phases of the cardiac cycle (rheography), the determination of respiratory volumes (spirography) in various physiological conditions.
  5. Microbiological division, based on the PCR laboratory of the NC JSC “SMU” University hospital. On the basis of the microbiological unit carried out ELISA and PCR (during the performance of scientific and experimental work).
  6. Immunological division, based on the SRLC. Here the study of molecular genetics mechanisms, formation of polymorphism of the immune system as the basis for the development of new methods of health assessment, prognosis and treatment of immune-pathological conditions are conducted.

All departments are equipped with the modern laboratory and diagnostic equipment designed for laboratory and clinical diagnostic studies.

The following international scientific project is carried out in SRLC:

  • International multicenter clinical study LLC “AbbVie” (USA) jointly with the Department of Internal Diseases, under the guidance of the Professor, R.L. Ivanova. (2017 – 2021)

The first stage in the development of central scientific research laboratory of NCJSC “Semey Medical University” will be establishment of laboratory units: CDL; personalized medicine centre; centre of pharmacological researches, which may enable best conditions for scientific research activity by means of improvement of organization, material and technical aspects of their implementation. This will serve as a platform for conducting of independent research, experience exchange, by international technologies, networking updating.

To implement broad objectives of the medicine, biology and biotechnology laboratory furnishing with modern state of the art equipment is planned.
