In 1981, Professor Nikolai Alekseevich Agadzhanyan headed the Department of Normal Physiology of the RUDN University. Pedagogical activity he successfully combined with active scientific work.

N. A. Agadzhanyan created a laboratory at the department “Ecological and physiological problems of adaptation” with highly qualified personnel and equipment. Under his guidance were organize expeditions to the Priaralye, Northern Kazakhstan, the Arctic, to the Snezhnaya Cave, as well as scientific expeditions to study the ecology of the Black and Middle Seas.

Sphere of scientific interests of N. A. Agadzhanyan was very wide. Numerous complex and highly responsible experiments allowed him to classify mountain heights, develop adaptation criteria and establish the role of time factor in the formation of adaptive reactions under extreme conditions, and also formulate an idea of the “ecological portrait of man” as a collection of genetically conditioned properties and structural-functional features of the individual, characterizing the specificity of adaptation to the concrete conditions of the habitat. He was the creator of a new scientific direction - ethnic physiology.

N. A. Agadzhanyan gave a new definition to the concept of “health”, which, along with full-value physical, mental and social well-being, first pointed out the necessity of taking into account moral health. In recent years, he has paid much attention to the problem of stress - one of the greatest evils of the 21st century.

The results of many years of his research were presented in more than 800 literature works, including monographs on “The Organism and the Gas Environment”, “Mountains and Resistance of the Organism”, “Medicine and Cosmos”, “Biological Rhythms”, “Functions of Organism in conditions of hypoxia and hypercapnia”, “Ecology of man” and many others. His most popular scientific books “Through the thorns to the stars”, “Reserves of our body”, “Man to live everywhere”, “The grain of life”, “Ecology of the soul”, “Stress and problems of adaptation”.
