ISTC project No. 3320 " Development of analytical method for quantification of organophosphorus toxic agents in air." Financial issues were adopted at a meeting of the Board of Managers, International Scientific and Technical Center, October 2005. Expected duration of the project is 3 years.

2002-2004

Project No 2345 on "Development of computer system for differential diagnosis of poisonings by organophosphorus substances". Collaborative support to this project was provided by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (USA). (November 2002- January 2004)

Project No CSP-22 on " Creation of the RIHTOP communication system" (May - December 2003). The Institute has received a reliable access to the Internet through a leased line and to international information resources through local area network. The implementation of the project has provided a means for the Institute to introduce up-to-date information technologies, including those related to video conferences translation.

In November 2003, Agreement No. US WS06-03SB72 on conducting a number of meetings which are cited as "Research Institute of Hygiene, Toxicology and Occupational Pathology and the Russian-American BioIndustry Initiative, Integrated Toxicology Testing (RABIIT) Program" was signed. In the frame of BioIndustry Initiative (BII), the US Department of State has established the RABIIT program with different goals in mind and, particularly, in response to demand for conducting toxicology testing that leaves a lot to be desired both in Russia and abroad. Presently, the negotiations between parties concerned has been completed, with the plan and budget built up for vivarium reconstruction. The issues that need further consideration together with a sponsoring party, as well as those concerning the onset of works on vivarium reconstruction are scheduled to settle in 2005. On completion of this first stage, the Institute will be ready to offer its contract services on toxicology testing.

Project No. 2733 on " Development of acute exposure guidance levels of hazardous substances". Collaborator - Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). Sponsor - ISTC (November 2004- October 2005)

Project No. 2370 on "Pharmacological correction of thrimethylphosphate- induced male reproduction function disorders". Collaborator - "Blue Ridge" Toxicological Center, University of Virginia, USA. Sponsor - ISTC ( May 2004- April 2006).
