A special role belongs to the scientific heritage of our great ancestors in the development of modern medicine. One of these outstanding individuals is our great compatriot Avicenna.

- This great scientist, who started his studies and research at the age of 16, wrote over 450 works in the field of medicine, philosophy, logic, chemistry, physics, astronomy, mathematics, music, literature and linguistics, of which 242 has been preserved to this day - said the chairman of the Avicenna public foundation Sh. Zokirhodjaev. - These unique works made a great contribution to the development of world science and have not lost their relevance today. In his book "The Canon of Medicine", Avicenna identified the main directions of development of medicine. The great scientist laid in his work the foundations for the most important methods of practical medicine and pharmacology. This was particularly highlighted at the international conference on "the historical legacy of scientists and thinkers of the Medieval East, its role and significance for the modern civilization", organized on the initiative of President Islam Karimov in Samarkand in May 2014. We collaborate with scientists around the world in studying and propagating the heritage of Avicenna.

Rich scientific heritage of Abu Ali Ibn Sina and its significance today has been on the conference agenda.
