The broad range of expertise across our school faculties and various  laboratories allow to conducting modern medical research. We have significant capability in the following areas of medical research:

Medical biochemistry and metabolomics


Cardiovascular medicine

Clinical sciences


Medical microbiology

Nutrition and dietetics

Oncology and carcinogensis

Pediatrics and reproductive medicine

Infectious epidemiology

Epidemiology of chronic disease

Disaster epidemiology

Health policy and health services

There are some strategic research topics for which  multidisciplinary teams were formed to work in the following research areas:

Medicine of Extreme Environment

The head of the Extreme Environment Medicine Team is prof. Aidaraliev As.A. He participated in three science based  research expeditions to Antarctica where he worked on human adaptation to extreme conditions in highlands. The focus of his work was on cellular-molecular mechanisms of adaptation. The results of the research were actually  a foundation for method of accelerated adaptation to hypoxia, which was  later incorporated in astronauts training program. This method was further developed by prof. A.S. Shanazarov who received special recognition in the field of "Aerospace Medicine".

Nowadays , multidisciplinary team represented by several areas of medicine and biology continues  to work on the adaptation to the extreme environment.

 Central Asia Endemic Diseases Control

The head of the team of Central Asia Endemic Diseases Control is prof. Chyngyshpaev Sh. M. The ever-present existence of diseases (endemic goiter, echinococcosis) or infectious agents (Bacillus anthracis) within some geographic area of Central Asia was the main reason for  this interdisciplinary group to be created and put into operation.

Asthma and Associated Conditions

The head of the team of Asthma and Associated Conditions is prof. Uzakov O.Zh. Asthma is the most common chronic disease among children, and high prevalence of asthma among residents of Kyrgyzstan’s mountain areas  necessitated the formation of this team.

Health services and health policy research

The head of this team is prof. Aidaraliev Ar.A. Health care systems of Central and East Asia countries  confront dramatic and unprecedented  challenge  nowadays. The research team examines country differences in health policy and the effect of new approaches in the region. The main emphasis  of the research has been on  medical education in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Maldives, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.
