  • Irina Hussainova: Estonian “Scientist of the Year”

    How to make a device that can be used to diagnose dangerous diseases? What helped to design a substrate that allows scientists to grow neurons in artificial conditions? And why is it not enough for a scientist to be an expert in only one specific narrow field? We have got an opportunity to discuss these and other questions with Irina Hussainova, an invited researcher at the International Research Center of Functional Materials and Devices of Optoelectronics and Electronics at ITMO University. This year, she was awarded the title of “Scientist of the Year” in Estonia and she has recently come to St. Petersburg to continue joint research. We asked her about the latest trends in the field of  biohealthcare  and additive technologies, the prospects of cooperating with ITMO and how an opportunity can turn a whole life of a scientist around.
