The Laboratory of Information Technologies was established to develop and put to practical use the systems for fast responding to chemical accidents and disasters. For promoting health monitoring of chemical agents and munitions demilitarization workers, as well as population groups living in buffer zones of such hazardous objects, health registries and databases being developed in the Laboratory play a central role in occupational disease control programmes. The development of computer diagnostic programs to assess health risks from chemical exposures is another important contribution to prevention and control of work-related diseases.

The Laboratory staff involves experienced experts in design automation, medical diagnostic automation, programming and medicine. Together with scientists of the Harvard University and National Livermore Laboratory (USA) some research projects have been carried out. Developed within the frame of a regional programme on preventive interventions and approaches in the work setting are the systems for fast responding to work-related accidents as applied to typical production system of 7 chemical industrial facilities, Volgograd, and 3 systems for special application at chemical weapons destruction facilities. By this time, 12 medical diagnostic programs have been developed.
