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; PLOS ONE, 2019; PhilosTrans, 2008]. The laboratory team uses and enhances the research approach in silico, aimed at the task of personalized assessment of thrombosis risks through the use of modern computer simulation methods (more on www.in-silico.ru).

Recently, particular attention is paid to finding opportunities of a fast-reacting medical interference during the fastest flowing phase of intravascular thrombosis. [PLOS ONE, 2019; PhilosTrans, 2008].
