Scientific research is carried out almost at all the departments, in the central research laboratory and in separate scientific laboratories of the V.I. Vernadsky Crimean Federal University. These are the laboratories of clinical immunology, physiology and ecological medicine, microbiology, morphology with electronic microscopy, biotechnology, functional pathomorphology and surfactant therapy, pharmacology, experimental pathophysiology, immunohystochemistry and lectin hystochemistry, experimental medicine, protein chemistry and protein complexes.
The privileged direction of the scientific research among the University scientists are those connected with different national programs regarding health care of our population.
In particular, the programs on health resort treatment, ecology, tuberculosis, oncology, diabetes mellitus, mother and child health care, AIDS are of great importance.
Annually, over 50 scientific themes are elaborated, 5-9 doctoral and 25-30 Ph.D. theses are defended, over 20 manuscripts are published. The V.I. Vernadsky Crimean Federal University scientists attain up to 70 patents for their inventions, which are applied in the practical health care.
The development of scientific research requires modern equipment: over the last years 2 electron microscopes, flow cytofluorimeter, atomic absorption spectrophotometer, PCR-laboratory, scanning spectrophotometer, CT scanner, digital X-ray apparatus, and modern ultrasound equipment have been purchased.
At present, ones of the most productively working departments in the respect of international cooperation are the following: Department of Biochemistry and Laboratory of Biotechnology (central scientific research laboratory, Professor K. Efetov), Department of Physiology (Professor Ye. V. Yevstafyeva), Department of Pathophysiology (Professor Zagorulko A. K.), Department of Clinical Immunology and Allergology (Professor V. А. Beloglazov), Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Professor Rybalka А. N. ), as well as Laboratory of Clinical Immunology (Associate Professor А. I. Gordienko).
4 clinical departments of the V.I. Vernadsky Crimean Federal University perform testing of pharmaceutical products that is according to the concluded international agreements with the leading pharmaceutical companies.
The CFU specialists participate in the international scientific meetings: just over the last years more than 60 members of University academic staff visited the conferences and congresses of the highest level held in the leading countries of the world.
Expansion of the University cooperation with foreign countries and intensification of contacts with partner-universities, e.g. Karl-Ruprecht University of Heidelberg and many others, help young specialists upgrade their knowledge and skill levels.
