Professor Lev Sandakhchiev


"Dear Colleagues:
It's been two years since the horrible terrorist attacks on American citizens. Please accept our sympathy for all those suffered from those attacks.
I think much has been already done by the US Government to protect the nation and I think we have been also well collaborating to combat the bioterrorist threat. I also hope this productive collaboration will continue towards providing vaccines, drugs, diagnostics and other protections for our two nations and the rest of the world."

Sincerely yours,
Prof. Lev S. Sandakhchiev Director General State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology VECTOR
