International Center for Vaccinology
The International Center for Vaccination (hereinafter referred to as the Center), was organized by the order of the Rector of the Kazakh National Agrarian Research University (hereinafter referred to as the University) on May 2, 2020  in accordance with the Charter of the University. The center is a subdivision of the University, carrying out research work on the specific prevention and treatment of infectious diseases of animals, birds and humans, including allergic diseases. The Center additionally trains of specialists and PhD students in the theoretical and practical foundations of the development, testing and implementation of various generations of vaccines into practice.


Tabynov Kaissar Kazybayevich (, Hirsch index - 10), is an expert in the field of vaccinology. His main specialization is associated with the development, study and implementation of  the production of various vaccines for animals, birds and humans. As a result of his 17 years of scientific activity, 3 vaccines for public health were developed (Refluvac - against pandemic influenza A / H1N1pdm09; Kazfluvac - against pandemic influenza A / H5N1; and Kazfluvir - against seasonal influenza) and 7 vaccines for veterinary medicine (against highly pathogenic avian influenza H5 subtypes and H7, equine influenza, bovine and small bovine brucellosis). Most (about 60%) of these developments have been introduced and are widely used in practice or are at the stage of implementation in production. He was directly involved in preclinical research and the registration of the two Kazakhstani pandemic vaccines, Refluvac and Kazfluvac (registration certificates RK-BP-3 №. 019910 and RK-BP-3 №. 019911 dated 05.28.2013), and also led the pilot production of a vaccine against seasonal influenza Kazfluvir, which has successfully passed the III-phase clinical trial in Kazakhstan. Under his leadership, in January 2019, a new vaccine against bovine brucellosis based on influenza viral vectors, which has no analogues in the world, was put into practice in Kazakhstan (registration certificate №. RK-VP-1-3775). Currently, under his leadership, research is underway on the creation of COVID-19 vaccines for health and veterinary medicine, as well as a vaccine against allergic rhinitis and bronchial asthma caused by wormwood pollen.

K. Tabynov, within the framework of the Bolashak International Scholarship Program, underwent a one-year internship (postdoctoral study) at the biotechnological company Vaxine Pty Ltd (Adelaide, Australia) on the topic: “Innovative technologies for the creation of safe and highly effective vaccines for health care”. As part of this internship, he also studied the fundamentals of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) Preclinical Vaccine Trials and Good Clinical Practice (GCP) Human Clinical Trials.
Due to his significant contribution to the development of Kazakhstani science,  K. Tabynov was awarded a number of awards, prizes and scholarships.
