100 New Faces of Kazakhstan: Serik Nurkenov

100 New Faces of Kazakhstan: Serik Nurkenov

Serik Nurkenov is one of the winners of the second stage of 100 New Faces of Kazakhstan project.

The physicist is a pioneer of new medical development in Kazakhstan by being able to detect oncological diseases as well as cardiac and neurological disorders at the early stages.

“We use reactive agents for these procedures. When administered to the body, the agent circulates through the blood vessels and identifies the cancer cells,” Nurkenov said.

He has conducted more than 17,000 medical examinations throughout his career.

Nurkenov also teaches physics at a local university in Kazakhstan. He developed two specific educational programs such as Physics in Nuclear Medicine and Physics Accelerators.

He believes that the programs he created would help save many lives in the future.

“President Nursultan Nazarbayev said that universities should teach the jobs of the future. That is why the science of medical physics is very important because we all know that the number of cancer patients is currently increasing.”

“I would like to say that we have trained more than 15 graduates who majored in medical physics who are now working in various medical centers in Kazakhstan,” Nurkenov said.

He also said that his participation in the 100 New Faces of Kazakhstan project has encouraged him to pursue new achievements.
