“The Institute’s history was created through the work and talent of outstanding scientists, doctors, engineers and other specialists. Their research and practical developments represent real scientific and creative breakthroughs that have made our country one of the leaders in the field of space biology and medicine.
It is important that you strive to maintain the high professional standard that your predecessors set and continue taking a bold and innovative approach to your tasks and objectives. Your work helps to develop Russia’s medicine and healthcare and carry out ambitious programmes to explore outer space and the ocean depths, and has immense significance for organising help for people in emergency situations.”
