Denis Kovalevich, executive director of the cluster of nuclear technologies of Skolkovo Foundation, the Center of Nuclear Medicine will be based at the Far East Federal University.

As explained by Mr. Kovalevich, the center will have a unit of proton-ion therapy. Similar centers in the Far East region work in Japan, China and South Korea. Design of the center is scheduled to start in 2013, construction may last five to six years.

Under plans, investment will be raised from the state budget, as well as private investors, including foreign ones.
