History of the Center
Perm Region Research Clinical Institute of Children’s Environmental Pathology opened its doors in Perm on January 17, 1995. The establishment of the Institute is a result of long-term laborious research in the field of environmental health under the leadership of Professor Nina V. Zaitseva, PhD, DSc, corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences.
The Institute’s mission is to develop ways and methods to protect children’s health in areas of environmental risk. Our patients are children with bronchial asthma, allergic, skin and thyroid diseases, etc. Causes of these diseases may vary but their severity, incidence and duration are significantly dependent on the quality of air that they inhale and drinking water that they consume every day.
Our specialists are able to detect toxicants of technogenic origin in children during the diagnostic stage, carry out advanced biochemical, immunological tests. It allows development of the most effective treatment regimens corresponding to the course and causes of a disease. When discharging from hospital every patient gets an individual further treatment plan.
The Institute was established at a difficult period of time. And only the combined efforts of Perm Administration, Perm Department of Public Health and Perm Environmental Protection Department resulted in the implementation of scientific achievements in the field of environmental medicine.
Our achievements have been recognized judging by a number of awards and the fact that, on the basis of the Institute, the Federal Scientific Center for Medical and Preventive Health Risk Management Technologies was established on May 8, 2009 by the government regulation. Today the Federal Center is a unique institution combining research in medicine, environmental studies, IT and chemistry. The results of our work have been highly estimated both in Russia and abroad.
