In the period from May 19 to June 27, Albina Aldabergenova, BTS 1st year student of «Bioanalyses et contrôles» from La Rochelle city (France), is trained at the Scientific and Research Institute of Applied Chemistry under L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University.
"After school, I went to study in France in the field of biotechnology, because I believe that they occupy the position of the basic sciences of the future. I wrote about this in my letter of motivation when entering the study as well as for the internship at the Institute of Applied Chemistry. I am interested in this institute after reading an article on the Internet devoted to the development of perfume "Fragrance of Kazakhstan steppes” by scientists under the leadership of Candidate of Chemical Sciences, PhD E.M. Suleimen based on essential oils extracted from herbs growing on the territory of Kazakhstan. This idea seemed very exciting and interesting, and I wanted to participate in this project. I wanted to work with essential oils by myself, as we are also carried out experiments with them in our school in France and it was very exciting. Next I contacted with Erlan Melsuly who approved my candidacy as an intern. According to the plan, I will extract essential oils from plants of both Kazakhstan and the Far East, as well as will make compositions of them, will check their cytotoxic, antiradical and antioxidant activities.
I was very warmly welcomed. People who work here are very professional and experienced. I am inspired by their love and thirst for the science, “- said Albina.
