The seminar will result into a publication of the seminar proceedings. The proceedings will be published on and will be included in Russian Science Citation Index.


The following presentation were given during the seminar:

1. Irina Pogonysheva, Candidate of Biological Science, Associate Professor - European process “Environment and human health”
