Within the framework of the joint project with the Russian Academy of Education “About Oncology-just”, an excursion was held for students of the 10th medical class at the P.A. Herzen Moscow State Medical Research Institute – a branch of the FSBI “NMRRC”.

We visited the Department of Translational Oncology, where we listened to a lecture on molecular genetic research methods in oncology by Ph.D. Shatalov P.A., a lecture on the principles of the PCR method by Ph.D. Raigorodskaya M.P., and independently performed an analysis of frequent mutations in BRCA1/2 genes by PCR.
