The Vaskiny Dachi research center on the Yamal Peninsula will receive new equipment for monitoring permafrost in 2018, Artyom Khomutov, leading research associate at the Institute of Earth’s Cryosphere of the Tyumen Research Center at the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Siberian branch, told TASS.

“The summer of 2017 was not as unusually warm as in 2016, but the active development of the processes changing the appearance of tundra landscapes did not slow down. Cavities on slopes continued expanding in the center of the Yamal Peninsula because of the melting of widely spread underground ice deposits. Owing to the support of the Russian Arctic Exploration Center and the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area’s Department of Science and Innovations, the Vaskiny Dachi research center received fully equipped living containers for the temporary residence of researchers. In the spring of 2018, more container housing and equipment will be sent to the station for researchers studying snow cover,” TASS reported quoting Khomutov.

He said studies conducted in the spring of 2017 revealed increased content of chlorine in lake water.

“This requires additional and more detailed research and new samples. In addition, we continue studying gas emission craters. Further work on this project financed by the Russian Research Fund is aimed at creating a theoretical model of crater formation and assessing its likelihood in central Yamal in the future,” Khomutov explained.

Several craters have been found near the Bovanenkovskoye deposit on the Yamal Peninsula since 2014. They were all flooded. Such craters are created by underground gas emission. Last summer researchers found another two craters — one some 34 km away from the village of Seyakha and the other about 20 km from the village of Yaruta.

Thanks to the implementation of investment projects in the pharmaceutical industry, namely the development of the plant of OOO Pharmasyntez-Tyumen, the Tyumen region becomes a major hub of medicine production.

Construction work for the Pharmasyntez company hormonal drug plant will start in the region soon. This project is an import-substitution one in the purest sense, as this area of Russian market is currently dominated by foreign companies. 97% of hormonal drugs used in Russia are purchased abroad. There are no such projects implemented or being implemented, not only in our country but also in the entire former Soviet Union.

Investments in the plant construction are estimated at 3.3 billion Rubles; its launch is scheduled for 2020. The company intends to produce about 30 kinds of hormonal drugs here.

In 2015, at one of the meetings with Vladimir Yakushev, Governor of the Tyumen region, the company presented its future project for reconstruction and modernization of YugraPharm plant purchased by the company in Tyumen. A modernization of IV solutions workshop was performed in short order. The volume of production increased threefold. In addition, a solid dosage form workshop was opened at the plant, a warehouse and water treatment facilities were reconstructed and the production of type II diabetes treatment drugs was established. The product range was expanded and the amount of employees in the Tyumen company branch was almost doubled.

The next stage of the company development was the decision to implement an audacious project for hormonal drug production. At the end of 2017, Governor Vladimir Yakushev and the President of GK Pharmasyntez signed a Cooperation Agreement between the Tyumen region government and the company for implementation of this investment project, extremely significant for the Russian Federation and the Tyumen region. The most advanced production is being established, employing the cutting-edge global technology subject to the requirements of Russian and international GMP standards.

“Both import substitution and introduction of new technology are among our priority directions. The regional government is interested in emergence of new investors and is ready to provide them with integrated governmental support. We are extremely open for domestic investors as well, should they wish to expand production and create new enterprises and sectors of regional industry,” said the head of the region.

School of Advanced Studies, which opened in 2017 at the University of Tyumen, aims to contribute to the global debate on the most important problems in the area of social sciences and humanities, life sciences and IT and to provide a unique, high-quality education for the best prepared, most talented, and most highly motivated students from Russia and abroad.


SAS research program relies on multidisciplinary research teams integrated into global academic networks; these teams replace traditional disciplinary departments and ensure intensive communication among faculty members within and across disciplines.

Research teams are formed through an innovative faculty search procedure thereby 25-30 finalists get together in Tyumen for a project design session where they self-organize into multidisciplinary teams and propose research projects. Members of the best project teams are then offered full-time faculty positions at SAS. The 2017 search resulted in 3 research teams currently working at SAS.

The next project design session will take place in March, 2018. Plenary meetings, where teams will present their projects for general discussion, will take place on 9,10,11 March and will be broadcast online.

This year’s finalists received their PhDs from the University of Michigan, MIT, National University of Singapore, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, McGill University, Queen’s University of Belfast, Boston University, University of Helsinki, Indiana University Bloomington, Pennsylvania State University, Institut Mines-Télécom and Sorbonne University, Queensland University of Technology, Hanyang University, University of Novi Sad, Johns Hopkins University, University of Cologne, Université catholique de Louvain, Emory University, University of Ghent, SUNY, UC Davis and Durham University. They currently work in research universities in 14 countries.
