  2. A prototype of a disposable set of consumables for automatic loading of erythrocytes with selected drugs under sterile conditions will be developed.
  3. Testing of the developed prototype of hardware-software complex for automatic loading of erythrocytes with selected drugs will be carried out In vitro.
  4. The main biopharmaceutical parameters of pharmacocytes will be studied in automatic loading of erythrocytes with selected drugs In vitro.
  5. An application will be submitted for the expertise of the developed prototype of the software and hardware complex for the model of the new technology for automatic loading of erythrocytes with selected drugs in the Republican State Enterprise "National Center for the Expertise of Medicines and Medical Devices".
  6. Based on the research results, reports will be presented at international conferences and / or exhibitions.
  7. The research results will be published in international peer-reviewed scientific journals included in the Web of Science and (or) Scopus database in accordance with the competition requirements according to the calendar plan. At least 3 (three) articles and (or) reviews will be published in peer-reviewed scientific journals indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded of the Web of Science database and (or) having a CiteScore percentile in the Scopus database of at least 35 (thirty five) for the entire project implementation period. At least 1 (one) article or review will be published in a peer-reviewed foreign or domestic publication recommended by CQAEA.
