29 january 2022 Biryuch Innovation Center continues active cooperation with leading scientists of the country
The current week at Biryuch Innovation Center was marked by two significant events in the field of interaction with the scientific community of the country.

On January 25, a regular meeting of the Scientific and Technical Council of the company was held under the chairmanship of O.A Dontsova, the Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The council was attended by the heads and leading researchers of such reputable scientific institutions as the Faculty of Chemistry of the Moscow State University, Skoltech, the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and others.

During the meeting, the participants:
- summed up the first results and highly appreciated the effectiveness of the pilot production of the sweet protein - monellin;
- noted the highest level of innovation in the technology for extracting protein from sunflower, proposed by the partners from the Moscow State University, outlined its undoubted advantages compared to the existing technologies, outlined the ways for further development of ideas in this area;
- reached an agreement on the start of intensive work on the development of an effective technology for the production of tagatose using the cascade fermentation method.

Biryuch Innovation Center estimates these results as the confirmation of the prospects of the chosen development vector.

On January 26, the Scientific and Technical Council held a meeting with an expert studying the metabolism of the company's innovative products in the human body. The leading chemists of the Moscow State University, the academicians of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the field of gastroenterology and immunology, and the leading WHO experts took part in the Council meeting.

Within the Council meeting, a work plan for a deep and comprehensive study of the impact of the consumption of "sweet proteins" on the human body was reviewed and approved, including the construction of a predictive model of the metabolism of "sweet proteins" in the human body, as well as conducting detailed studies to test the developed model.

Such reputable research centers as the Moscow State University, the Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry, and others will participate in this large-scale project.

Successful research results will be a key step towards the state registration of technologies for obtaining "sweet proteins" developed by Biryuch Innovation Center.
