International collaboration is impossible without continuous interaction that implies exchange of experience and organizing joint events. Following this principle, our University annually hosts different scientific events with participation of overseas colleagues: collaborative research laboratories, master-classes, workshops, conferences, symposia, etc.

About 50 scientific and practical events, including those that engage international participants, are held at our University every year. Many of them have become traditional — for example, the International conference ‘Current problems in Experimental and Clinical Medicine’ and the International Ophthalmology Congress ‘The White Nights’.
