The Staff of the Department conduct experimental studies on the pathogenesis of ischemic and reperfusion injuries of the brain, liver, and the search for means of correcting this pathology. The topic “Development of brain damage, liver and abdominal cavity in conditions of endothelial dysfunction and its correction with L-arginine and ω-3 fatty acids preparation” is planned for 2017–2022 (scientific advisor - Prof. N.Ye. Maksimovich, principle investigator - E.I. Bon E.I.). 17 theses have been defended by the teachers of the department (2 – master's, 12 – candidate and 3 – doctoral theses).
