He is the organizer of large-scale field and laboratory experimental studies on isolation of strains of ortho- and paramyxoviruses of birds and mammals from natural biocenoses, many of which are deposited in the National Collection of Viruses of the Republic of Kazakhstan and registered in GenBank. He trained in large foreign laboratories. Specialist in marine mammal diseases, publications in leading virological and environmental journals. Kydyrmanov A.I. obtained data on the circulation of influenza A viruses, morbilliviruses, herpesvirus serotype 1 in the population of Caspian seals.
The main areas of scientific interests are related to the study of ecology, evolution and molecular genetic variability of animal viruses; the study of the role of viruses in infectious pathology and deciphering the causes of mass death of individual representatives of fauna in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Kydyrmanov A.I. is the author of 275 scientific papers, 28 copyrighted inventions and patents. Over the past 5 years, 75 papers have been published, including 14 in foreign publications indexed by Web of Science or Scopus, and 8 patents have been obtained.

Karamendin Kobei Omertaevich – Chief Researcher, Candidate of Veterinary Sciences.
The main areas of scientific research: ecology, evolution, diagnostics of viruses of humans, birds and mammals. Works on mass parallel sequencing of virus genomes of various families have been published. Participation in the decoding of the mass death of saiga in Kazakhstan with the use of mass parallel sequencing of the bacterial and viral metagenome of saiga. Main achievements: in various ecosystems of the Republic of Kazakhstan, he isolated original strains of viruses of different families from birds, humans and animals, studied the peculiarities of their distribution and the main genetic characteristics. He studied bacterial and viral metagenomes, camels, marine mammals, migratory birds and saiga. With the participation of Sasan Fereydouni and Aydin Kydyrmanov, the cause of the mass death of saiga in Kazakhstan was revealed. Together with Kydyrmanov, A. from the laboratory established the causes of death of camels in western Kazakhstan from camel pox and clostridiosis. For the first time, he identified new avulaviruses of avian serotypes APMV-13, APMV-16, APMV-20, previously unknown to science, and a new adenovirus of gulls.
Karamendin K.O., author of 142 scientific papers, over the past 5 years he has published 74 papers, including 13 in foreign publications indexed by Web of Science or Scopus, received 8 patents.
