Welcome to the laboratory of Georgy Th. Guria

Our team consists of the researchers, working along with Prof. Georgy Guria on the study of the role of instabilities in the dynamics of complex systems, including biological regulation.

It is generally accepted that the loss of stability of any regime is a prologue to the transition of that nonequilibrium system to another state having a different time or space-time ordering. The study of different types of such non-equilibrium transitions observed in the physico-chemical and biological systems, and the task of revealing the conditions for the implementation of such transitions is the main subject of the research of our team.

At the moment, obviously the most attention is given to transitions manifested in the dynamics of such sophisticated physiological substance as blood [Thrombosis Research, 2015; Guria, 2011]. In the center of our attention are both theoretical issues of finding conditions of loss of the liquid state stability of the blood, and questions concerning the development of tools and methods for real-time monitoring of aggregate state of blood in vitro and in vivo [Scientific Reports, 2016; PLoS ONE, 2015; JTB, 2012; PhilosTrans, 2008].

Recently, particular attention is paid to finding opportunities of a fast-reacting medical interference during the fastest flowing phase of intravascular thrombosis. [PhilosTrans, 2008].

The range of actively studied systems is not limited to blood coagulation system. Among the actively studied issues are mass transfer processes in the human body.


Our research has been funded by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR), the International Science and Technology Center (ISTC), the Russian Science Foundation (RSF).
