    Press/Media: Research


    The group of scientists from Tomsk Polytechnic University is implementing a fundamental research project to study the role of iodine contained in thyroxine also known as the hormone of intelligence. Scientists are trying to understand what makes thyroxine act as a hormone of intelligence. TPU research team made an assumption that unlike selenium, which was previously considered a key component, iodine plays a critical role in this process. A number of successful experiments allow us to say that Tomsk scientists are moving in the right direction.
