Young scientists conference Modern Aspects of Biochemistry and Biotechnology – 2019

Palladin Institute of Biochemistry, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine
21-22 March, 2019, Kyiv, Ukraine

On March 21-22, 2019 the regular annual young scientists Conference “Modern Aspects of Biochemistry and Biotechnology” was successfully held in Palladin Institute of Biochemistry. The Conference was organi­zed by the Young Scientists Council of Palladin Institute of Biochemistry with the support of ALT Ukraine Ltd –advanced laboratory technologies Company. Young scientists from Kyiv, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Chernivtsi, Ternopil, Poltava took part in the Conference as oral speakers. The scientific program of the Conference included the following sections: Translational Studies; Biochemistry; Biotechnology; Molecular Biology; Medical Biochemistry; Biochemical mechanisms of resistance to adverse environmental conditions. The workshops devoted to  computer analysis of biological images; methods of biological experimental data statistical analysis; quantitative polymerase chain reaction for gene expression estimation; spectrofluorometry as a rainbow force for biochemists service were organized to broaden the research skills of young scientists.
Conference was opened by the new section ‘Translational Studies’. So many reports were focused on the efforts to build on basic scientific research to create new therapies, medical procedures, or diagnostics. The members of Scientific Committee specially acknowledged those young scientists who presented data about long way from idea, it’s in vitro approval to the in vivo testing and application.
The honorary awards for the best oral presentation were given to Anna Myronova (“CRISPRa-mediated direct cardiac reprogramming of embryonic rat fibroblasts”), Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics, NAS of Ukraine, Kyiv; Yevgen Stohnii (“Epitope determination of novel fibrinogen-specific antibody by limi­ted proteolysis”), Palladin Institute of Biochemistry, NAS of Ukraine, Kyiv; Anton Tkachenko (“Fascin is upregulated in nasal mucosa in chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps”), Kharkiv National Medical University, Kharkiv.
The honourable mention prizes for interesting scientific reports were presented to Vira Borshchovetska (Yuriy Fedkovych Chernivtsi National University, Chernivtsi), Olga Revka and Valerija Zhovannyk (Palladin Institute of Biochemistry, Kyiv),  Maxym Skrypnyk (Ukrainian medical stomatological academy, Poltava).
The meeting was held in a creative and friendly atmosphere with constructive and helpful discussions. The abstracts of the oral presentations of participants will be published in the “Ukrainian Biochemical Journal”.
