New legal demands emerged in Georgia parallel to the process of transition from a communist economy to the capitalist system. It was very difficult to meet these demands, as there were few relevant materials in Georgian legal literature.

To comply with emerging developments in the legal system, in 2009 TSU Professor Irakli Burduli began working on a publication entitled the Basics of Joint-Stock Company Law. In 2010 he published the first volume and on November 29, 2013, TSU hosted the presentation of the second volume published by Meridian Editions. The author plans to publish the next volume by 2015. Although there is some Georgian literature on the joint-stockcompany law and capitalist society law, this monograph is the first of its sort, considering the scope of the research.

For the last 15-20 years medical researchers have studied the application of nanoparticles that have magnetic properties. This interest can be explained by the amazing possibility of controlling nanoparticles remotely through the application of a magnetic field. Today scientists use nanoparticles to develop a method of treating oncological diseases. Local hyperthermia could now become one of the major methods of treating cancer patients.

Since 2000, TSU researchers have been studying the issues of influence of a drug Zafirlucast on the cardiovascular system after different types of cardiac muscle damage occurs. The research is being carried out by the TSU Department of Pharmacology and ltd “International Center of New Biomedical Technologies”, and is continuing at the Department of Pharmacology of the TSU Faculty of Medicine.

Clinical and experimental research projects are being implemented parallel to histopathological examinations at the Center of Clinical Pathology of the Alexander Natishvili Institute of Morphology, TSU. An ongoing project launched in 2009 involves research on the “early ductular reaction phenomenon” to determine why there is an increased number of ductules--small anatomical bile ducts – in liver tissue at the early stages of cholestasis.
