On the basis of the Photochemistry center jointly with Moscow institute of physics and technology, Moscow engineering physics institute and M.V. Lomonosov Moscow state academy of fine chemical technology there has been established the Education and research center “Organic Nanophotonics”. Its work aims at training bachelors, masters and candidates of science. Every year 50-60 students listen to lectures and work in the Center.

The education and research center comprises:

  • department of physics of supramolecular systems and nanophotonics (Moscow institute of physics and technology),
  • department of computer simulation and physics of nanostructures and superconductors (Moscow engineering physics institute),
  • N.A. Preobrazhenskiy department of chemistry and bioactive compound technologies (Moscow state academy of fine chemical technology).
