History of the subdepartment of Laboratory Diagnostics and Molecular Medicine

In accordance with the decision of the Academic Council KazNMU on June 5, 2001, and the order № 231 of July 19, 2001 in order to improve the quality of the students had been taught a training course «Clinical Laboratory Diagnostics» from September 1, 2001. The head of the training course has been appointed MD, professor Zhangelova MB

The first clinical base of the course was the city Emergency Care Hospital. For patients with medical institutions in Almaty and students were advanced hematologic, biochemical, ultrasound and other diagnostic studies.

Since the beginning of 2003-2004 academic year course was transformed into a subdepartament, «Clinical laboratory and instrumental diagnostic», greatly expanded staff, introduced the teaching of new training courses, organized by the new well-equipped laboratory of clinical microbiology (Vastec 960 bacteriological analyzer Termo-labSystems gas chromatograph firm Agilent HP 6890), clinical Biochemistry, «Diamorf» PCR — diagnosis, ELISA.

Head of the subdepartment was appointed as MD, Associate Professor Beisembayev Sh.A. Classrooms equipped with computers. Expanded clinical base of the subdepartment — Clinical Hospital № 7, City Diagnostic Center, Emergency Care Hospital, a maternity hospital № 1, the medical center «Hack.»

The subdepartment was organized internship, residency, postgraduate and doctoral studies. Students are engaged in the Scientific Research section. With the training of doctors and specialists in modern diagnostic technologies: PCR, ELISA, ultrasound, echocardiography, EEG, spirography, bacterial analyzers, biochemistry, hematology analyzers and morfodensitometry.

Research conducted on the basis of their microbiological laboratory named by Kyuntsinger equipped with modern facilities and organized with the sponsorship of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and with the personal participation Fernand Goldshmit.

In December 2006, after  the recommendations of the Scientific Council of Faculty of Medicine and the CMS therapeutic disciplines to the teaching of instrumental diagnosis transferred to the subdepartment of Oncology, Radiology, and mammalogy.

In 2008 (Order № 330 of 02.04., 2008) based on the decision of the Academic Council KazNMU number 1 from 26/09/2007 subdepartment of Clinical laboratory and instrumental diagnostic has been renamed the subepartment of Laboratory Diagnostics and Molecular Medicine.

The subdepartment trained students 2, 3 and 4 years of the faculty, «General Medicine», 6 year medical, pediatric faculty, five branches of the course «Medical and biological matter» and residents in the specialty «Clinical Laboratory Diagnostics» and related specialties in the following disciplines:

«Clinical Biochemistry, «Problems of Molecular Medicine», «Medical and biological matter»;

«Clinical Laboratory Diagnostics», «Clinical Laboratory Diagnostics» for residents in the field of «Pediatrics», «Neonatologist», «Obstetrician-Gynecologist,» «psychiatrist», «Phthisiologists», «Neurologist», «infectious diseases», «Oncologist», «Cardiologist», «Sports Medicine «» Dermatovenerologist «,» GP «,» endocrinologist «,» Rheumatologist «,» Dentist «; “Laboratory diagnosis of cardiovascular disease «, «Laboratory diagnosis of intrauterine infections», «Fundamentals of gemostaziology» , «General clinical analysis of blood» ,»Biochemistry of organs and tissues» , «Biochemistry of pathological processes»,  «Modern diagnostic technology,» «Molecular Aspects of Clinical Biochemistry,» «Standards for GLP and Quality Management» .

Diploma thesis at the 5 th year students MDB on a specialty «The doctor — a biochemist. microbiologist»;

Teaching and industrial practice «physician assistant intern» (work in the office of the functional diagnosis) in the 4th year students of OM;

» Clinical Laboratory Diagnostics » — residency (1st and 2nd year).


On September 1, 2010, became head of the subdepartment, MD Professor Tsoi I.G.


Our achievements

Ph.D., Associate Professor Beisembayev Sh.A. was the executive in charge of research projects:

1. «Development and implementation of high genomic technologies in the diagnosis and prediction of the course and outcomes of infectious diseases» (Grant MH RK);

2. «Genetic structure of populations of Mycobacterium tuberculosis circulating in Kazakhstan» (grant MES);

3. «Developing evidence-based programs to improve laboratory services and biosafety in the Republic of Kazakhstan» (Grant MH RK).

4. Performer fragment of NTP «Molecular design of new anti-infective drugs azotsiklic connections» (National Center for Biotechnology, Astana and Institute of General Genetics and Cytology, Almaty, MES RK).
