Welcome to the web-site Research Institute for Medical Genetics !
Research Institute of Medical Genetics is one of the leading Russian scientific institutions performing research in the field of medical and human genetics and the only academic institution of this kind beyond the Urals.
The specialized Clinic of Hereditary Diseases of the Institute is the only clinic of this kind in Russia.
The Institute has advanced techniques for fundamental and applied research in genetics and molecular biology.
Welcome message of the Institute's scentific Director, Professor Valery P. Puzyrev
The structure of the Institute includes:
27th of June – Valeriy Pavlovich Puzyrev's Birthday
Institute’s staff sincerely congratulates on birthday the Director of the Institute, academician of RAMS, Professor Valeriy Pavlovich Puzyrev! We wish him further scientific success, prosperity and health as well as smart and talented pupils.
Public attitudes towards predictive genetic testing in Russia has been published in a Journal of Personalized Medicine №7 incoming in the collection of Journals of Future Medicine
The article is available in Publication section
Makeeva OA, Markova VV, Roses AD, Puzyrev VP: An epidemiologic-based survey of public attitudes towards predictive genetic testing in Russia. Pers. Med. 7(3), 291-300 (2010).
Genetic testing for common diseases has become one of the most controversial topics present in the recent genetics literature. Many genetic tests are becoming available direct-to-consumers before critical medical implications have been widely considered. High level of public interest as well as overestimated expectations is one of factors that determine the rapid development of personal genome services. In a Russian urban population, 85% of 2000 respondents answered positively to a question about their own willingness to undergo predictive genetic testing for preventable health conditions and 88.5% of surveyed people said that they would change their life style in case of high risk detection. But the genetic discrimination causes some concerns in 48% of surveyed respondents. Gender, age and health status significantly influenced response. The most important reason to be tested is a concern about health but refuse to be tested is connected with the difficulty to pay for it and after treatment.

Diploma of the 5th International Pirogov scientific medical conference of students and young scientists
Our congratulations to Dmitriy Sergeevich Orlov, the student of the cytogenetics laboratory of the Institute, for the third degree Diploma at the 5th International Pirogov scientific medical conference of students and young scientists held on March 18, 2010 in Moscow. His report was devoted to “Epimutations of the imprinted gene PLAGL1 in early prenatal death of human embryos and their connection to obstetric anamnesis history” (scientific advisor PhD Sazhenova E.A.). We wish him further scientific success!
