New departments and projects

This year, two laboratories have been set up at the Faculty of Computer Science which focus on the application of computer science in biology. The International Laboratory of Bioinformatics opened in January. It succeeds the previous Bioinformatics Lab. It is headed by Maria Poptsova, with Alan Herbert, founder of InsideOutBio and discoverer of Z-DNA, the left-handed variant of the DNA molecule, as a research advisor.

The Laboratory on AI for Computational Biology opened in March. It is headed by Attila Kertes-Farkas. The lab will develop deep learning technologies for analysing biomolecular medical data.

The Faculty also has two new departments. The Otkritie Bank Department was created in January and is headed by Sergey Rusanov, a member of the management board at Otkritie Bank. The JetBrains Department was created as a part of the School of Software Engineering in April, its head is Alexey Mitsyuk.

In early October HSE University won the grant from the Government of Russia to create an AI research centre as part of the federal Artificial Intelligence project. The Faculty of Computer Science will play a leading part in the creation of the HSE University Artificial Intelligence Research Centre, along with other units of the university.

The Laboratory of Methods for Big Data Analysis (LAMBDA) partakes in constructing an electron-positron collider to conduct comprehensive research into the charm quarks of D mesons and tau leptons. Financed by the Government of Russia, the project calls for research teams of HSE University, Russian Academy of Sciences, Yandex School of Data Analysis, and Rosatom.


Our congratulations to the graduates of the Faculty's Doctoral School who defended their theses this year: Vladislav Shakhuro, Soroosh ShalilehNikolay Smetanin, Anvar Kurmukov, and Dmitry Altukhov. Liudmila Prokhorenkova, who received her habilitation and the degree of Doctor of Sciences this year, deserves a special mention.

We also congratulate Prof. Dmitry Vetrov who received the Research Excellence Award Russia 2021, and Egor Kosov who received the Moscow Mathematical Society Award in November.
