Dear conference participants, in connection with the global epidemiological situation, the Organizing Committee decided to MOVE the conference to May 2021!
The 2020 marks the 120th anniversary of the birth of an outstanding scientist, Nikolay Wladimirovich Timofeeff-Ressovsky. Nikolay Wladimirovich made important discoveries in several areas of biology: genetics, radiobiology, radioecology and evolution. The conference, which we are holding for the fifth time, is formed on the topics of scientific research of Timofeeff-Ressovsky. He had many students in different countries.
The first biophysicists in Armenia were students of Nikolay Wladimirovich: Ts.M. Avakyan, N. Simonyan, R. Atayan, A. Zurabyan and others. On the recommendations of Timofeeff-Ressovsky, a Laboratory of Biophysics was created at the Yerevan Physical Institute. The students organized the Readings in memory of N.W. Timofeeff-Ressovsky in Armenia (Yerevan, 1983) when his name was still banned. We celebrate the 120th anniversary of the birth of Timofeeff-Ressovsky in Yerevan.
This conference is dedicated to our teachers. First of all, to N.W. Timofeeff-Ressovsky and to his scientific school.
