Science should help <…> the body fight. In order to get there, we need to develop the technology for rehabilitative medicine. <…> We need to learn how to build health and disease incidence <…> projection models. Together with economists, we need to use them for understanding and calculating the economic potential and necessary funds. <…> We need to create a health management system with the use all achievements in all sciences, including non-linear mathematics, — Alexander Rasumov, President, National Spa Association; Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Technological breakthroughs <…> change the environment around us regardless of the pandemic. They have sped up the process. They change how we interact with each other, how we learn and what we fill our spare time with. <…> What would be the right response to this challenge? How do we find a response that is not purely technological? <…> It is a complex global challenge. Responding to it will require everybody to combine their efforts. By everybody I mean humanities scholars, social scientists, psychologists, historians, medical professionals, <…> and, of course, those involved in technology, — Arutyun Avetisyan, Director, Institute for System Programming of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Education and research are very important. If we did not have research before, we would not have vaccines now. Some vaccines, including Sputnik, did not take long to be developed because certain research was done prior to that. <…> Technologies and technical solutions are just as important as medical solutions. <…> It is a complex problem that requires a complex solution that should be driven by medicine, <…> technology, and politics or public administration, — Mounir Hamdi, Founding Dean, College of Science and Engineering, Hamad Bin Khalifa University.
We need to be prepared <…> in terms of organization and economic decisions. <…> We need to organize the work of any in-patient unit, clinic or medical centre in a different way. <…> Minimally invasive methods <…> should be routinely used. It will help avoid many problems <…> we have faced. <…> We should not turn into healers. We should apply scientific methods in practical medicine, — Sergey Popov, Head, St. Petersburg Centre for Endoscopic Urology and New Technologies.
