Laboratory of Developmental Biology


The studies in developmental biology were among the most significant directions of the studies in the Schmalhausen Institute of Zoology. In 1963, the Department of Cytology and Histogenesis was separated from the Department of Evolutionary Morphology and established as the separate division of the Institute under the supervision of P. M. Mazhuga (the Director of the Institute in 1963-1965). The scientists of the Department studied the mechanisms of histogenesis and organogenesis in terrestrial vertebrates. Later, the studies of morphofunctional adaptations and their disorders under certain environmental factors were started too. P. M. Mazhuga was Head of the Department until 1988, and in 1988-2016 N. V. Rodionova was Head of the Department. In 2016, the Department of Cytology was reorganized as a Laboratory of Developmental Biology and included to the Department of Evolutionary Morphology. O. M. Yaryhin became an Acting Head of the Laboratory.
