SSC meeting of the Department of General and Biological Chemistry with the participation of international students

Another meeting of the student scientific circle was held at the Department of General and Biological Chemistry. This time, the participation of foreign students of the Faculty of Medicine studying at the University in English was noteworthy.

According to tradition, the meeting was opened by the curator of the circle, associate professor of the department Gamzayeva Ulzana Gamzaevna, who acquainted the participants with the agenda of the meeting in accordance with which two reports were set to be presented at the current meeting.

The report “Computerized methods of electrolysis of biomaterials for diagnostics and changes in their chemical composition” was made by a 2nd-year student of the Faculty of Pharmacy, Evgeny Kolyada. The enthusiasm and encouragement with which the speaker spoke did not leave the audience indifferent. At the end of the report, a large number of questions were asked, to which Evgeny answered quite confidently and explained that while the work is theoretical in nature, he intends to continue it in a practical aspect.

The second report “Quantitative determination of rutin in various varieties of tea” was prepared by 2nd-year students of the Faculty of Medicine Srinivasa Redi and Edima Johnson. Together with their research supervisor, assistant of the department Magomedova Zalmu Magomedovna, they performed a good practical work on determining the routine in various varieties of tea from different manufacturers. The results of the work were reported in English, which gave an incentive to our Russian-speaking students to study English and improve their language skills. The report was accompanied by a bright presentation. According to the results of the work, some recommendations were given to which of the studied varieties of tea to give preference when using. And of course, when discussing the report and the results of the work, the link between the Russian – and English-speaking audience was the favorite translator and curator of foreign students Kurbanova Raisa Gabibullayevna.

The prolonged meeting and the lively discussion of the reports, however, did not tire anyone. We are pleased with the genuine interest and participation of students in such events.

In conclusion, the head of the circle and the assistant professor of the department Gamzatov Patimat Aliyevna wished the students further creative success!
