Professor Ivar Kalvinsh (Doctor of Chemistry, Head of the Department of Medical Chemistry, Institute of Organic Synthesis of Latvia) delivered a lecture to teachers and students at the Institute of Life Science, NCFU. Ivar Kalvinsh is one of the most prominent chemists of the world. A number of medicines have been synthesized under his supervision. Besides, Prof. Kalvinsh has co-authored the famous antitumor drug Belinostat. The Latvian scientist is the author to more than 1000 scientific works, about 400 of them being patents and certificates (43 of them for mildronate, used to treat cardiovascular diseases). The scientist has made about 250 discoveries, which helped to save millions of lives.

Another important invention by the Professor is Faccex – a medicine reducing alcohol dependency.

While visiting the NCFU, Prof. Kalvinsh expressed a high opinion of the training and research projects carried out here and said he would like one day to be part of a joint study.

Another achievement at the NCFU that impressed Mr. Kalvinsh was the NCFU Scientific Library that uses all the formats available for data storage.
