Iryna G. Vasylieva +380 44 483-92-43


Head – candidate of biology science Vasylieva Iryna Heorhiyivna.

The department was created in 2007 through the merging of the molecular biochemistry, clinical biochemistry and energy metabolism biochemistry laboratories. 

Key areas of sciatic research:

  • study of molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis of a traumatic brain injury, development of biochemical criteria for forecasting secondary sequelae of CNS lesions;
  • study of molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis of motor disorders in case of child cerebral palsy, and correction of such disorders by means of transplantation of embryonic nervous tissue and its trophic fractures;
  • study of metabolism of neurotransmitters in case of neurosurgical pathologies;
  • design of a system of efficacious methods for rapid analysis of individual sensitivity of brain tumor cells to chemotherapy.

The Department is located in the 1st (administrative and laboratory) building of Romodanov Neurosurgery Institute (see Institute scheme).
