“Interdisciplinarity is the future of plastic surgery,” Professor Natalya Tataurschikova

Plastic surgery as a scientific field is developing rapidly, this topic discussed at the roundtable “Human Science: How Plastic Surgery Will Change in the Near Future” at the Russia Today International News Agency. RUDN University was represented by Professor Natalya Tataurschikova, Deputy Dean for Scientific, Organizational and Methodological Work, RUDN University

In 2019, the Ministry of Health submitted a draft professional standard for plastic surgeons, which includes, inter alia, five-year residency training. There is a dissertation council on plastic surgery, which is headed by professor Natalia Manturova, chief freelance specialist - plastic surgeon of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation and the Department of Health of Moscow, Head of the department of plastic and reconstructive surgery, cosmetology and cell technology at Pirogov Institute.

In June 2019, the first defense of a PhD dissertation in the specialty was held in Russia. In December, the defense of the first doctoral dissertation in plastic surgery is due.

RUDN University is one of the leading research centers in the field of plastic surgery. It is no coincidence that the first scientific and practical conference “Modern Trends in Research in the Field of Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine”, held in early April, was held at RUDN University.

“In the presence of our foreign colleagues, we discussed modern fundamental, as well as new scientific directions of plastic surgery,” noted Natalya Manturova on the significance of the April conference.

 

“The residency in plastic surgery at RUDN has existed for a long time, we constantly raise issues of improving the quality of the educational process in the industry and introducing advanced scientific practices both in training specialists and in practical plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is an advanced branch of medical science and practice,” said Professor Tataurschikova.

The challenges facing a modern plastic surgeon dictate new requirements for a specialist profile.

“The expectations of plastic surgery patients require deep psychological knowledge, because there are no such high requirements in any medical industry that involves transformation. Knowledge of immunological techniques, understanding of how the immune system affects various processes in the body, knowledge of wound healing techniques - all this is the key to the success of patient management. Interdisciplinary scientific knowledge is very important for a plastic surgeon, ” Natalya Tataurschikova emphasized.

The professor also emphasized that the capabilities of Russian science and the multidisciplinary approach make the profession of a plastic surgeon very relevant.

“Thanks to the adoption of educational and professional standards in plastic surgery, we expect the appearance of highly qualified specialists and the latest opportunities in improving the quality of life of patients - along with increasing life expectancy, this task has been set for the healthcare industry by President Vladimir Putin,” summed up Natalya Tataurschikova.

RUDN University chemists developed new magnetic and luminescent lanthanide-siloxane-based compounds

A team of chemists from RUDN University synthesized new organosilicon compounds containing terbium and europium ions. These complexes have an unusual cage-like crystal structure that contains four metal ions. The team was the first to study the magnetic and photophysical properties of such compounds and to observe their magnetic phase transition and luminescence properties.

An associate professor from RUDN University developed a computer model that describes all types of vehicle body damage caused by fatigue failure

Un profesor de RUDN University desarrolló un modelo computacional que describe completamente el daño que ocurre en la carrocería de automóviles por fatiga de materiales. El experimento computacional demostró que en carreteras irregulares, la velocidad baja provoca daños más graves en la carrocería que la velocidad promedio. Este descubrimiento ayudará a evaluar con mayor precisión la resistencia de los vehículos a las cargas.

RUDN University research team of mathematicians suggested a new decision making algorithm

A research team from RUDN University developed an algorithm to help large groups of people make optimal decisions in a short time. They confirmed the efficiency of their model using the example of the market at which the outbreak of COVID-19 began. The model helped the administration and sellers agree on closing the market and reach a consensus about the sums of compensations in just three steps.
