Direction of scientific research
Development of methodology for monitoring, assessment, prediction and prevention of risks associated with the high level toxic polluting substances transfer via biological pathways. These substances can accumulate in the food chain and spread in Arctic ecosystems.

Igor Manzhurov: Highly qualified personnel should work in the Arctic
Head of the Ural Territorial Administration of the Russian Ministry of Education and Science Igor Manzhurov visited NArFU. Within the framework of his visit, a meeting was held with the leadership of the university, at which joint research of NArFU and FRCCRA, the use of the scientific infrastructure of the university during joint work were discussed.
The guest also got acquainted with the Center for Physics of NArFU, the Arctic biomonitoring laboratory , the innovation and technology center for Arctic oil and gas laboratory research, and the innovation and technology center "Modern Technologies for Processing Bioresources of the North."
“During a meeting with the leadership of the university, we discussed the created scientific and educational center“ Russian Arctic: new technologies, materials and research methods ”. The creation of such centers is extremely important and relevant. They are supported throughout the country as part of the national project "Science". Even Mikhail Lomonosov talked about how necessary and great the Arctic is. Even those states that do not have Arctic territories tend to go there. High latitudes are rich in resources that need to be explored. Scientists have something to work on! Arkhangelsk has a very good science, higher education, and many competencies are collected here. The university has historical ties with the enterprises of the timber industry, with Severodvinsk - one of the main nuclei that are part of the SEC. Here they deal with physiology, biological monitoring, materials science. An important issue is training. Technologies are now at such a high level that those professionals who work in the Arctic must be highly skilled. The university has the widest field of activity in this area, ”said Igor Manzhurov.
