History of the department
The Department of Physiology, Biochemistry and Microbiology was established in 2010 by combining two departments – the physiology and biochemistry of farm animals (Head of Dr. Biology, Prof. BV Smolyaninov) and Microbiology and Virology (Head of Dr. Prof. EI Buryak). After the creation of the Odessa Agricultural Institute (1918), there was no independent department of physiology and biochemistry of farm animals. Students of animal science and other faculties took courses at Novorossiysk University. Only in 1928 was created an independent department of animal physiology, headed by L.A. Yegunov, but after his departure to Leningrad (St. Petersburg), during 1932-1960 he was headed by Dr. Med. Sciences R. J. Veitelberg. All scientific work of the staff of the department was aimed at studying the physiology of digestion in dogs, namely, the processes of absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. Only in 1951 at the department began scientific research on farm animals. A number of studies have been carried out to study the absorption processes of monos sugars, water, chlorides, phosphates, amino acids and the effects on the central nervous system in sheep. Due to the transfer of the veterinary faculty to the city of Bila Tserkva, the teaching load has decreased dramatically since 1956, the department of animal physiology was merged with the department of anatomy, and later with the department of histology and biochemistry. After restoration of veterinary and opening of economics faculties in 1962 the department began to function again as an independent structural unit at the Faculty of Zootechnics. During 1960–1988 the department was headed by a doctor. biol. of sciences, prof. IS Samoilenko. The scientific work of the department during this period changed its direction a little. The main attention of the employees of the department was focused on the study of the relationship between systems of thermoregulation and digestion in farm animals. In 1988, Dr. Biol held the position of Head of the Department. of sciences, prof. BV Smolyaninov, who was invited from the Institute of Animal Biology (Lviv). Under the direction of BV Smolyaninov, the department launched a research work to study the intensity of tissue energy metabolism and processes of peroxidation in the reproductive organs of cows depending on their morpho-functional state, level of productivity, hormones. Methods of correction of sexual cyclicity at farm animals and measures for prevention of their infertility were developed at the department; Hormonal methods of stimulating sexual hunting in farm animals have been developed and put into practice. The Department of Microbiology at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine was established in 1945. Its first head was PI Gromakovsky. In 1946 the department was headed by Dr. Vet. of sciences, prof. VP Tulchynska, who made a great contribution to the training of scientific and pedagogical staff and the organization of a laboratory of microbiology, in which new methods of elimination of brucellosis in the Odessa region were studied and developed. In 1954, the Department of Microbiology and Epizootology was merged. The reorganized chair was headed by Dr. vet. of sciences, prof. KS Shulumova is a specialist in the field of veterinary medicine and the application of tissue products, feed antibiotics and vitamins to stimulate growth and increase productivity of farm animals and poultry. During 1969–1985 Professor AV Demchenko headed the department. Scientific research at the department was directed to the development of methods of serological diagnostics of infectious diseases of poultry and the effectiveness of serum recovalescent for the treatment and prevention of mixed infections in chickens. In 1985. Department of Microbiology headed by Assoc. E.I. Beet. Subsequently, the department merged with the department of epizootology (1988-1996). After 1996. and until 2010. The department was once again an independent structural unit headed by Prof. E. Buryak. The main direction of the research work of the department during this period was the development and implementation of more advanced methods for the diagnosis and control of cattle tuberculosis. Prof. EI Buryak developed a new method for the diagnosis of tuberculosis – the response of blood mononuclear cells to tuberculin in vitro (RMC), on the basis of which “Methodical Recommendations for the Provision of Technological and Veterinary Sanitary Measures for the Prevention and Elimination of Cattle Tuberculosis” were developed and put into production. From 2016 until today the department is managed by Cand. biol. Sciences, Assoc. VO Nayda. During 1988–2019, about 100 scientific articles, 11 patents, three inventions, practical recommendations for production were approved by the Department’s staff, approved by the Department of Veterinary Medicine of Ukraine. Seven PhD and PhD Theses were defended. about 100 scientific articles, 11 patents, three inventions, practical recommendations for production, approved by the Department of Veterinary Medicine of Ukraine have been published by the employees of the department.
