The 6th Annual Session of Young Scientists “Science and Practice”

The 6th Annual Session of Young Scientists “Science and Practice” was held in the Research Institute for Complex Issues of Cardiovascular Diseases (NII KPSSZ) on 09 and 10 June 2016 in Kemerovo. This year Young Scientists Session was under the authority of the Federal Agency for Scientific Organizations and The Working Group of Young Cardiologists of the Russian Society of Cardiology.

The Young Scientists Session highlighted the importance of the translation medicine to bridge between experimental studies and achievements to modern clinical cardiology. Young specialists got an opportunity to present their original researches to the medical community from different cities of the Russian Federation: Kemerovo, Tomsk, Moscow and St. Petersburg.

In her opening speech to the participants of the 2016 Annual session of Young Cardiologist, Professor Olga L. Barbarash, the Director of the NII KPSSZ and the Chairman of the Department of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery, Kemerovo State Medical University, stressed the significance of the implementation of translational approach in science and research in current economical conditions as well as the need for the rapid introduction of innovative approaches and methods for diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. She also emphasized the necessity to use a coordinated multidisciplinary approach to patient care, involving the solution of one of the most acute problems of the Russian healthcare – the reduction of social costs of cardiovascular disease.

The Young Scientists Session was opened by the plenary session dedicated to obstacles and challenges that are faced by the medical community. Young researchers presented their original studies addressed to burning issues of modern cardiology.

The Professor of the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery №2, I.M.SechenovFirstMoscowStateMedicalUniversity, N. Neminuschiy presented new insights regarding the use of implantable cardioverter defibrillators to the medical community.

The Senior Medical Advisor at the biopharmaceutical company “Amgen”, PhD S. Bajan discussed with young scientists the necessity to apply novel biotechnological approaches for treating atherosclerosis as well as new drug therapies for treating dyslipidemia.

The closing plenary speech of M. Vander, a cardiologist at the Department of Rhythm Disturbance Endovascular Treatment and Pacing, Federal North-West Medical Research Centre, covers current challenges of using rational anticoagulant therapy in patients with atrial fibrillation undergoing interventional procedures (radiofrequency ablation) according to the recent guidelines.

The scientific programme of the Annual Session included the discussions of original studies performed by young scientists and cardiologists. Their reports were mostly focused at fundamental and practical aspects of modern medical science: from epidemiology of cardiovascular risk factors even up to mathematical modeling of original designs of bioprosthetic valves.

Two sections were organized to facilitate the discussion: “Promising Approaches in Diagnosis and Treatment of Patients with Multivessel and Polyvascular Disease” and “Promising Approaches in Translational Medicine”. Each section contained 15 presentations performed by young scientists and cardiologists.

This year a panel of leading experts from the biomedical community at the Annual Session of Young Scientists included: the leader of the Kuzbass Society of Cardiology, PhD, Professor Olga Barbarash (Kemerovo); Deputy Director for Research at the NII KPSSZ, PhD, Professor Galina Artamonova (Kemerovo); a well-known arrhythmia specialist, PhD, Professor Nikolai Neminuschiy (Moscow); a heart rhythm specialist Marianna Vander (Saint-Petersburg), the Secretary of the Working Group of Young Cardiologists of the Russian Society of Cardiology, PhD Svetlana Garkina (Saint-Petersburg); a well-known specialist in interventional cardiology, PhD. Vladimir Ganiukov (Kemerovo); Professor of the Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery Department at the Kemerovo State Medical University, PhD. Viktoria Karetnikova (Kemerovo); the Head of the Department of Experimental and Clinical Cardiology at the NII KPSSZ, Ph.D. Julia Kudryavtseva (Kemerovo); PhD Stepan Bajan; and the Chairman of the Council of Young Scientists of the NII KPSSZ, PhD Vasily Kashtalap (Kemerovo).

Each report provoked comments and questions from the expert panel and the medical community, leading to a lively discussion. In each session the expert panel defined the winners of the Young Investigator Award.

The first day of the Young Scientists Session was informative and thought provoking. The expert panel underlined high scientific and practical significance of all reports presented by young scientists. The medical community appreciated the originality of all presented studies which were focused on major challenges in modern cardiology.

The second day of the Young Scientists Session “Science and Practice” was devoted to Grand Round Presentations “Business Projects in Modern Healthcare and Major Challenges”.
