Amanova (PhD student of the specialty of “Medicine”) and their supervisors Е.М. Turgunov and S.A. Ivasenko to discuss research and further work planning.
Also within 2 days, the French colleagues took part in a meeting to discuss the development of a joint educational program of a double master's degree in Biology with guidance and faculty members of the MUK. At the meeting there were presented the main directions of the master degree, educational programs at the University of Poitiers and “MUK” NJSC, and the structure of the future joint educational program was discussed.
