The Main activity direction of the structural unit: Nuclear Security and Radiation Safety:
• Develop the scientific bases to protect organisms from radiation effect;
• Produce radioprophylactic compounds, components, extracts of natural and synthetic origins and study their radioprotective properties.

Main scientific achievements of the structural unit:
• It was obtained rutine, juglone and their iron complexes from Sofora Japonica L., Juglans regia plants and defined their radioprotective properties.
• It was determined radioprotective properties of Achillea nobilis, Crocus sativus L., Calendula officinalis extracts and forms of these extracts modified with polyvinylpyrrolidone and recommended their use possibility in prophylactic purposes.
