The Federal Centre of the Arctic Medicine in the Arkhangelsk Region is scheduled to be launched in 2023. It was announced by Alexander Tsybulsky at the Tass news conference on the development and prospects of cooperation between the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) and the Arkhangelsk Region.
Earlier, Alexander Chekunkov, the Minister of the Russian Federation for Development of the Far East and Arctic, Alexander Tsybulsky, governor of the Arkhangelsk Region and Alexander Sergeyev, president and member of the RAS, signed an agreement on cooperation for the establishment of the Centre of the Arctic Medicine in the Arkhangelsk Region.
'I believe that in 2022 we should focus entirely on creating the organisational structure of this centre and be more specific (research and education-wise) in defining the area of its activity and aligning some kind of work drivers to help us launch the centre. Therefore, I do wish we could fully launch the centre by 2023,' Tsybulsky said.
The head of the region pointed out that it was essential that the sources of financing establishment of the centre be determined next year.

Mr Tsybulsky also reported that the Federal Centre of the Arctic Medicine could engage doctors from rural and remote areas in scientific research.
