"Russia does not yet have a legislative framework for the widespread use of cellular technologies, but it is scientific research that will be able to promote its appearance," Yevgeny Shlyakhto believes.

The search for new nanotechnological drugs will also be discussed, when the substance is delivered to the desired area with the help of nanoparticles, the problems of so-called personalized medicine, when approaches to pharmacotherapy are based on the peculiarities of the metabolism of enzymes and hormones of a particular patient.
