“I have an experience of cooperation with scientists from Italy, Greece and the USA. However my special interest is generated by cooperation with the Ufa scientists. Our work with Shamil Gantsev proceeds very actively. I like very much the approach of the Bashkir scientists, they are very industrious. I like very much the Bashkir State Medical University and the republican Oncological Centre. I like to work with students, to bring up young generation. When I visited Ufa for the first time, I was quite impressed with the students here. That is why I want to bring the contribution to development of young generation. I am grateful to Rustem Khamitov that he found time to meet with me. Rustem Khamitov is a large scientist himself. I am glad that mister President approved our project,” M-r Umezawa said communicating with representatives of mass-media at the end of the meeting.
