The Tomsk Institute of Cardiology will be one of the key organizers of a round table on innovation in medicine, which will be held in India within the framework of meetings in the run-up to the BRICS Summit in Goa on October 15 and 16, said Shamil Akhmedov, deputy director of the institute, told RIA Tomsk.
Last year the Tomsk Institute of Cardiology initiated the formation of an international consortium “BRICS-Biomed”, under which experts from BRICS countries were going to work together and implement technology in the field of biomedical research.
“From October 12 to 14, we will be organizing a round table as part of the BRICS big event, which will be held in Goa. We have been given the right to hold a “BRICS-Biomed” round table, where the first results of this work will be presented, and the prospects for further development will be discussed,” Akhmedov said.
One of the main themes of the round table will be introduction of innovations in a medical doctor’s practice. “We will discuss the legal nuances especially those involving property issues, and the interaction between private companies and the state in implementing projects. Funding the project will also be discussed,” said Akhmedov.
Experts from each country have selected the most promising projects for the round table discussion. Russian scientists plan to present more than 20 innovations, including new generation coronary stents developed in Tomsk, and a handheld device used to perform ECG, developed together with scientists of the Tomsk Polytechnic University.
Akhmedov said the plan was to select around 30-40 most promising projects and see them through with the consortium members’ common efforts.
