The event is aimed at sharing experience in the use of advanced medical technologies in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infectious diseases in adults and children, as well as in coordinating efforts to improve medical care for infectious patients.
Among the scientific directions of the Congress are biosafety, bacterial infections, viral infections, mycoses, tropical and parasitic diseases, hospital infections, immune disorders in infectious diseases, the problem of resistance of pathogens and rational antimicrobial chemotherapy, laboratory diagnostics,
Ekaterina Samotolkina, a PhD student of RUDN Department of Infectious Diseases with courses in epidemiology and phthisiology presented studies on the causes of death of severe HIV-infected patients in the intensive care unit, risk factors for cardiovascular disease in HIV-infected patients over the age of 40, analysis of the definition of insufficient adherence to treatment in the cascade of medical care for HIV-infected patients, and malaria situation on the territory of Ukraine. The materials are published in the Annex to the Journal "Infectology", indexed in Scopus.
The event was organized by the RF Ministry of Health, the Euro-Asian Society for Infectious Diseases, the Ministry of Health of the Novosibirsk Region, the Novosibirsk State Medical University, the Children's Scientific and Clinical Center for Infectious Diseases, St. Petersburg Public Organization "Humans and human health".

A chemist from RUDN University has developed a catalyst for the production of eugenol acetate, a substance that destroys the larvae of mosquitoes transmitting dangerous diseases, being a safe chemical for human health.
RUDN soil scientists have revealed a direct correlation between the rate of soil formation of carbon dioxide, called CO2 emissions, and the content of microbial biomass in it. It is known that CO2 emission from soil is mainly conditioned by respiration of soil microorganisms and plant roots. The more CO2 soil emits, the more microbial biomass it usually contains. It was shown that CO2 emission by chernozem of different ecosystems (or different types of land use) correlates with the content of microbial biomass, and most closely with the rate of its microbial respiration. And the soil with good microbial properties has the “best quality”, is more fertile, provides the highest yield of crops and other plant biomass.
A RUDN chemist has synthesized a catalyst for the production of gamma-valerolactone — an energy-intensive “green” biofuel. The catalyst based on zirconium dioxide and zeolite has shown high efficiency in converting the waste of wood plant materials — methyl levulinate — to gamma-valerolactone.
