Chapter Summary

After the war, the momentum of Tatarstan's educational and scientific activities only increased, propelled by the start of the full-scale extraction of oil and the overall scientific boom in the USSR with its pioneering outer space programme. We can easily appreciate that well-developed skills in chemistry were essential in the establishment of the petrochemical complex of Tatarstan, but this was far from all among scientific achievements of the republic in view of its unique 'can-do' culture. In Tatarstan, a number of ground-breaking achievements in modern medicine are being introduced, especially in the spheres of heart surgery and neurosurgery, transplant surgery, oncology, onco-haematology and others. The republic has its own bank of stem cells and the first patients are being treated by cell technologies in the State Clinic Hospital. The ever-improving performance of the Tatarstan economy makes things possible in both health and educational spheres.
