  • help with finding support for russian researcher

    Please excuse this posting for not being directly related to biomechanics,
    but I thought that the BIOMCH-L community might be a good and quick way to
    find an answer to the following situation.

    I know a Russian Orthopedic surgeon who has spent a number of years
    working in Human Gait Analysis and has even developed his own gait analysis
    system with the technology at hand in Russia. He wants to come to the United
    States to do research (and escape the current conditions in Russia). He visited
    us at Mayo Clinic last fall and presented his research. Unfortunately, there
    is nothing available here. I have heard that there are special programs in
    effect between a number of countries and Russia to help prevent the complete
    breakdown of science during the present difficulties.

    SO, if anyone would know of a research position in locomotion analysis, or as
    a technician for that matter, please drop me a note and I will pass the
    information on. Also, if anyone knows of specific organizations to contact in
    the United States for economic assistance for the doctor and his family, please
    contact me.

    By the way, he is in the US right now so I can easily contact him if someone
    should be interested.

    Thanks for any and all replies,
