Perm LEO
For Russian standards, Perm is one of the most multicultural places in the whole country; it is a home of many ethnic groups who have lived together in Perm ever since its existence. While taking a walk through Perm’s huge central bazaar one can easily distinguish Russians at the many typical small kiosks, Georgians and Armenians selling their original spicy kebabs and shoarmas straight from the barbecue and Tatars operating from most of the simple but colorful jewelry stands. Furthermore, Russian orthodox churches, a mosque, a synagogue and several Catholic churches (some dating from the 17th century) all exist next to each other in Perm. The multicultural character of Perm also shows in its dining possibilities; one does never have to go far to experience the Russian, Uzbek, Georgian or Caucasian cuisine. In spite of its multicultural character, Perm is “Russian till the bone”. Wide avenues, big squares and parks, many statues, dominant Soviet architecture, countless little kiosks, huge theatres and trolley busses everywhere - all make Perm as Russian as Russian can be. Being some 1400 kilometers away from the big influential cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg, Perm is a relaxed place, wh ere people have kept the typical Russian way of life and traditions.

1. "Use of intravenous immunoglobulin for the opsonization of Candida albicans,E.Coli and St.Aureus in blood of patients with infection endocarditis". Department of immunology.
Description of the project: the number of fungal and bacterial infections has grown recently and this requires an increased interest in the study of antifungal immunity mechanisms. The innate immunity recognition systems that are involved in phagocytosis of microscopic fungi, such as patern-recognition receptors, including the family of C-type lectin family and Toll-like receptors (Brown, 2011) are described. However, there is little information about the participation of opsonizing mechanisms in the recognition of fungi  and bacteria.
The aim of the project: to study the effect of immunoglobulin (Ig) for intravenous reference ("Octagam") on parameters of phagocytic activity of peripheral blood leukocytes from donors against Candida albicans, E.Coli and St.Aureus.
Techniques and methods: As an object of phagocytosis we will use slurry of Candida albicans, E.Coli and St.Aureus.  We’ll spend opsonization using a commercial preparation “Octagam” containing Ig G class with a wide range of specific Ig against a complex of microorganisms. The working concentration of the drug IgG is 20 mg/ml (Deryabin, 2007). We’ll conduct accounting results microscopically by counting the parameters of phagocytic activity of neutrophils and monocytes separately. Statistical  methods.
Role of the student: 1)The capture of venous blood of patients with infectious endocarditis. 2)Work in the laboratory: independently carry out opsonization of bacteria and fungi, to work with the microscope. 3)The discussion of the results. The hypotheses. 4)Working with documents.

2. "Features of the lesion of otorhinolaryngological (ENT) organs from HIV-infected patients at different stages of the disease". Department of infectious diseases, Department of otorhinolaryngology.
Description of the project: HIV infection is one of the most actual problem in the modern world. Progressive immunodeficiency in HIV-infected patients leads to the development of opportunistic infections of different organs and sistems, including ENT organs.
The aim of the project: to study the features of the lesion of ENT organs from HIV-infected patients at different stages of the disease.
Techniques and methods: Otorhinolaryngological examination, virological and bacteriological methods, statistical methods.
Role of the student: 1)Work in infectious hospitals: the joint examination with the doctor HIV-positive patients. 2)The capture of smears in HIV-positive patients from the nasal cavity, the tonsils, external ear canal. 3)Work in the laboratory: examination of smears on the fungi of the genus Candida (C. albicans etc). 4)The discussion of the results. The hypotheses. 5) Working with documents.

3. "The influence of blood supply on the course of inflammatory diseases of lungs and pleura". Department of Hospital surgery. 
Description of the project: Topicality pyo-inflammatory lung disease is an urgent problem of thoracic surgery. The prevalence of non-specific diseases of the lungs and pleura 3 - 4 among other diseases, and the largest economic costs in the last decade, the frequency of acute pulmonary and pleural suppuration increases significantly. Numerous large and statistical summaries of recent years show an alarming increase in the incidence.
The aim of the project: the study of microcirculation in the course of various lungs and pleura.
Techniques and methods: The stages of the experiment:

  1. Diagnosis of a patient with of inflammatory diseases of lungs and pleura
  2. Taking blood from the vein before the surgical correction of valvular pathology, then blood collection .
  3. Using the appliance «LAK»
  4. Use of X-rays
  5. Bronchoscope
  6. Pulmonary angiography
  7. Computer tomography

Role of the student: 1) Student with tutor will to collect clinical material. 2) The discussion of the results (student with tutor will develop the hypotheses, find proofs and confirmations). 3) Working with documents (looking for scientific article, work in the electronic library).




The students get their meals in a hospital canteen from Monday to Friday, 1 time per day.


Foreign students live in double- triple rooms of dormitory. 

The Dorm for foreign students is situated in the centre of the city, near administrative and training buildings. Pass regime is organized in the dorm, protection establishment provides security. Food: lunch for bilateral exchanges 1 per day in the hospital. - See more at: DormThe Dorm
