1. Development of transplantological methods of compensating pathological states (diabetes, pathologies of the gastrointestinal tract, ageing, hypogonadism, encopresis, radiation stress etc.).
2. Research into the fundamental principles of the physiological, biochemical, biophysical and immunological features of various pathologies during their initiation, progression and long-term compensation.
3. Research into the fundamental principles and development of test systems for screening and express analysis of various membrane-active substances (cytotoxins, oncoprotectors, other biologically and pharmacologically active compounds) based on the use of giant Chara algal cells as a model of target cells.
Use is made of physiological, transplantological, surgical, biophysical, biochemical, immunological and gerontological methods of research.
