Novosibirsk state university is the unique place where education and science intersect. These two fields are inseparable here: they help the University to move forward by opening the incredible opportunities for work and further studies to NSU students and graduates. The university closely cooperates with the research institutes: more than a hundred of research areas developed all over the world are available for our students to explore. This allows NSU students to engage in the real, serious science from early years of their study, and to become part of the international scientific community.
Novosibirsk state university holds the leading positions in physics and natural sciences, being among the world’s best universities. The leading positions are ensured by participation in international collaborations, as well as by the wide recognition of research outcomes. For example, in 2015 the European center for nuclear research chose to build a supercollider using the model developed by the scientists working at the Institute of nuclear physics (Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences), who are also NSU professors and graduates.
Together with the traditional scientific disciplines, new areas are now being developed at NSU: engineering, instrumentation, astrophysics, and many more. The university now demonstrates the increasing amount of publications and citations in international journals; the number of graduate students and young faculty members is also growing. And, of course, the location of NSU in the academic town (Akademgorodok) provides the intellectual environment for professional development of every student, creates the ground for the emergence of new interdisciplinary research areas, and for integration of science with business and society.
NSU scientists recently completed the book "Fundamentals of Biosafety" that is devoted to the principles and methods for safely working with pathogenic microorganisms. The team included Sergey Netesov, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Doctor of Biological Sciences, and Professor at the NSU Natural Sciences Department, Mamedyar Azayev, Doctor of Biological Sciences and Associate Professor at the NSU V. Zelman Institute of Medicine and Psychology of NSU, and top specialists at the State Scientific Center for Virology and Biotechnology "Vector".
