AOSR Medical Sciences Section press release on vaccination against COVID-19
The Medical Sciences Section of the Romanian Academy of Scientists considers vaccination as one of the greatest medical discoveries in history, comparable to the discovery of antibiotics, asepsis, antisepsis and anaesthetics. Without vaccinations the human species would today be almost defeated by microbial and viral species. In the current conditions, we ask Romanians to trust us and to help defeat the pandemic through vaccination. It is very important that every citizen applies all the rules indicated by doctors. We have to accept that there may be, as in any therapeutic procedure, cases of failure, infinitely few in number, which cannot take away the huge benefits of the more than 98% of those who are successfully vaccinated. The changes in our environment force us to prevent further possible attacks by microbial or viral species. Within the Romanian Academy of Scientists, there is only the opinion of saving through vaccination, prevention and all treatments that sanction the effects of these viral attacks on the body functions. We call on the people of Romania to accept the perceptions of doctors, who have a large sample of casualties in this war on the pandemic. Please go for vaccination, trust the doctors, beware of the unknowing who give their opinion! The AOSR medical section has illustrious doctors who have expressed their opinion, such as: Acad. Bălăceanu-Stolnici, the great neurosurgeon Vlad Ciurea, Professor Sorin Rugină, General Professor Dan Mischianu and Professor Irinel Popescu, and at our annual sessions evidence about this condition was presented by renowned medical specialists: Professor Streinu-Cercel, Irina Dumitru, Camelia Diaconu, Sebastian Ionescu and many others. I call you to stand with the army of white coats and, if you want to know the truth about this scourge, address your questions to our section members with the official contact addresses of the AOSR, an institution that has been serving the sciences in Romania for over 80 years since its foundation and is currently highly rated internationally. Prof. Dr. Sârbu Vasile, President of the AOSR Medical Sciences Section.
The Academy of Romanian Scientists (AOSR) organizes on Thursday 21 October 2021, 17:30, the online launch of “#HalateAlbe, People who make us well”, which contains 108 interviews with leading personalities of Romanian medicine, author Ioana Brușten, journalist.

THE ACADEMY OF ROMANIAN SCIENTISTS PROTESTS AGAINST THE SLAUGHTERING AND DISCRIMINATION OF THE INSTITUTION IN THE NAME OF POLITICAL INTERESTS The Academy of Romanian Scientists has noted with surprise the existence of a legislative initiative to abolish the AOSR. The arguments behind this political gesture are abusive and do not correspond to the truth. A number of clarifications are necessary in this respect. 1. The initiative to abolish the Romanian Academy of Scientists expresses a purely political project, which uses arguments alien to the truth and the field of scientific research, based only on null and void “value” judgments, persistently conveyed in the public environment, in a kind of collective indictment, supported by slanderous definitions.…..more

For the “package” of anxieties to be complete, lack of coherent and empathetic communication, lack of understanding and arrogance have a way of making people angry. Rightly so! The last few days have seen a mixture of complicated situations for Romanian society. We have all seen explosions of extremism, then street demonstrations against the restrictions imposed by the authorities and, despite Prime Minister Cîțu’s assurances that the economy is doing quite well, we are witnessing a rapid deterioration of the economic environment……more

Dear Colleagues, I would like to begin by thanking those who participated in the series of scientific events dedicated to addressing the issue of the pandemic and its effects, held on 26 January this year – “Vaccination, between the power of science and the power of misinformation” and on 25 February this year – “Vaccination, between the power of science and the power of misinformation”.c. – “The impact of epidemics on societal security”, an expression of the interest shown by the AOSR in this topic during the National Scientific Conference of 26 Nov. 2020, entitled “Pandemic in scientific and cultural vision”. The success of these events reinforces our hope that you will also appreciate the webinar entitled “A New Geopolitical Agenda for the Black Sea” organised by AOSR and UAS, which we invite you to honour us with your participation on Thursday, 25 March 2021, starting at 12 noon: http://us02web.zoom.us/j/83822285921 Meeting ID: 838 2228 5921 Passcode: 072912
Romania does not need scientists, but politicians without culture and common sense!
Prof. dr. doc. Alexandru-Vladimir Ciurea, Member A.O.Ș.R.
I’m outraged and sad at the same time!… For the second time in a row, the Academy of Scientists (AOȘR) is left without a budget by the Romanian Parliament. A wave of lies has poured from the pens of the so-called progressives, eager to destroy – without putting anything in place! – any symbol of Romanian society that does not “fit” under their control. Or, even worse, about which they know nothing, but feel that their superficiality and ignorance threaten them. And they are threatened by an attempt at political construction very similar to that of the Marxist regimes, which standardised everything or silenced any voice that did not correspond to the policies of the single party. Folks, it’s come to the challenge in the US of George Washington, one of the founding fathers of that great state, just because Procust’s new bed won’t fit those who don’t agree with progressives!… Stupid ideas become the punch lines of political demonstrations into which unsuspecting people are skillfully lured by clever propagandists.…..more
COMMUNICATION THERomanian Academy ofScientists:STATEMENTS IN THE NAME OF TRUTH AND POLITICAL CORRECTNESSTheRomanianAcademyofScientists has become the target of undignified attitudes and attacks from some media and political forces, aimed at discrediting the institution in the public environment, distorting its image and undermining its status. All this is based, on the one hand, on a gross lack of information, on the other hand, on opinions circulated in the tabloid press, and seems to express a political project. A political project not dedicated to the development of science and education in Romania, but focused strictly on a single goal: the abolition of the Romanian Academy of Scientists. At the same time, our institution is facing a new wave of slander and denigration carried out by some publications or websites, which aim to misinform, mislead and manipulate public opinion……more
Romanian Academy of Scientists
by Ioan ScurtuOn the occasion of the discussion of the 2021 budget, the “civists” unleashed a new wave of insults and slander against the Romanian Academy of Scientists and its members. I have called them “civists” to distinguish them from the true exponents of civil society. These “civists” act like the Stalinists of the 1950s, who destroyed the economy, education and science – in fact Romania – in the name of an ideology. The Academy of Scientists operates on the basis of a law, but in Romania breaking laws, starting with the Constitution, has become common practice. In the three decades since the 1989 “change”, the national economy has been destroyed, but no one has been held accountable for the – admittedly fraudulent – privatisations. Neither presidents, nor heads of government, nor ministers, nor negotiators, nor signatories of contracts that are detrimental to the Romanian state. Justice – the “independent” one – has not heard, has not known and does not know that the Romanian fleet, the Tractor Plant in Brasov, the Electroputere Plant in Craiova, the 1 Mai Plant in Ploiesti, the Sowing Plant in Bucharest have disappeared, nor of the liquidation of the Pig Breeding Combine in Timisoara (Contim), nor…nor…nor. It all floats in a hazy anonymity, cloaked in the formula “we destroyed the national economy” – a collective and unidentifiable subject……more
ANSWER TO THE DENIGRATORS of the Academy of Romanian Scientists (AOȘR) has once again become the target of unworthy attitudes and attacks, facing a new wave of slander and denigration carried out by some publications or websites, which aim to misinform, mislead and manipulate public opinion. The public image of the AOȘR promoted by these media is a rudimentary one, based on poisoned definitions and fake news: “phantom institution”, “phantom Academy of Scientists”, “Academy founded by Ecaterina Andronescu, headed by Ion Iliescu, as honorary president” “Academy affiliated to a certain party, without personalities, lacking scientific value, without activity and results, consuming budget money, etc. etc.” Incorrect, malicious statements – which AOȘR does not deserve! This profoundly untrue and unfair image for the identity, history, activity and outstanding results of the Romanian Academy of Scientists, offensive to its members, formed the necessary and sufficient framework for the recent political decision of the government to cut the budget of the institution for the second consecutive year.…..more

The Romanian Academy of Scientists supports the vaccination campaign against COVID-19 and all efforts to fight the pandemicTheRomanian Academy ofScientists strongly supports, both scientifically and civically, the national vaccination campaign against COVID-19. From a scientific point of view, the AOSR bases its position on the analyses and conclusions expressed within the Medical Sciences Section of its structure, which comprises personalities in the field, university professors, doctors and researchers, with academic and professional prestige at national and international level. From a civic perspective, in view of the unprecedented seriousness of the situation generated by the new coronavirus, AOSR intends to show solidarity with the Romanian state institutions on the front line of the fight against the pandemic and to get directly involved in the joint effort made by them to protect public health through all the measures taken and through the vaccination campaign. Within this scientific, civic and moral framework, the members of the AOSR, leading personalities of Romanian medicine, have already been vaccinated or will be vaccinated in the coming days. In the next interval, in addition to continuing the vaccination process at the institution, The Romanian Academy of Scientists will organize, through the Section of Medical Sciences, a series of academic events (symposia, round tables in online format) on the topic of the pandemic, scientific and administrative measures to combat it, focusing on the need for large-scale vaccination of the population. During these events, special attention will be paid to COVID-19 vaccines through multidisciplinary approaches that will analyse their mechanisms of functioning, effects, benefits and possible risks. The Romanian Academy of Scientists considers such involvement in the national effort to fight the pandemic to be its scientific and moral obligation. Such a duty becomes a priority in the face of the diversity of opinions expressed publicly in relation to the pandemic situation, which does not lack fake news, conspiracy theories, coronasceptic positions, clear attitudes against vaccination and protective measures, which lead to thwarting the fight against the pandemic. The AOSR bases its direct involvement in this national process on its institutional mission enshrined in the Statute and in the Law of functioning, on a history of almost a century, starting with the foundation of the Romanian Academy of Sciences in 1935 by a great physician and Minister of Education, Dr. Constantin Angelescu.
The Academy of Romanian Scientists (AOSR) through the Institute for Advanced Interdisciplinary Research “Constantin Angelescu” (ICAI) opened on Thursday, December 3, 2020, the online course E-learning developer . The event was opened by Prof. Dr. Eng. Doina Banciu, Vice-President of the Romanian Academy of Scientists, in the presence of the President of the Romanian Academy of Scientists, prof. univ. Dr. Ing. Adrian Badea, as well as guest lecturers: prof. univ. dr. eng. Dumitru Popescu, prof. univ. dr. eng. Răzvan Rughinis, dr. eng. Larisa Ivașcu, PhD, Director of the Engineering and Management Research Centre – Polytechnic University of Timisoara, Lecturer Dr. Daniel Fodorean – Dean of the Faculty of Theology, Baptist Theological Institute, Lecturer Dr. Eng. Mihail Dumitrache, University of Bucharest. Participants highlighted the importance of this course and the need to adapt the education system to the current conditions due to the health crisis. It also emerged from the interventions of the guests that the development of E-learning based education is an ongoing process, which will intensify in the coming years. The first edition of the course was attended by academics, doctoral students, teachers, librarians and computer scientists from Bucharest, Timisoara, Cluj, Brasov and rural areas. In their interventions, the trainees reiterated their interest in this course and their expectations after completing it. The course will end on 21 December 2020.
Ioan Scurtu80years of life in the service of history We are going through a strange period in our activity. We can no longer gather our close friends to celebrate a colleague’s birthday or anniversary. Even if we cannot physically meet, we are left with our thoughts and feelings that go out to our loved ones. For those who feel Romanian, for those who are thinking of Professor Ioan Scurtu, the 27th of November has a double meaning. On this day we think with sadness of the shocking death of the great historian Nicolae Iorga and with joy of the birth of historian Ioan Scurtu…..more

The Romanian Academy of Scientists publishers announce the publication of the book: Monastery of a Wood – a unique monastic complex in Romania. Historical Monograph/ Dintr-un Lemn Monastery – A Unique Monastic Complex in Romania. Historical Monograph (Foreword by Prof. Ion I. Solcanu), 444p., in an exceptional design and colour illustration, author Prof. Valentin Ciorbea, corresponding member of A.O.Ș.R. On the relevance of the manuscript, academician Răzvan Theodorescu said: “The volume has a real scientific value, being the result of a comprehensive documentation in libraries and archives where the author has found many unpublished sources. The monograph is in a bilingual edition, which allows not only the Romanian reader or the Romanian-speaking reader, but also the English-speaking reader to know the history of the monastery, its importance and its role as a heritage value.” Prof. Ioan Opriș also appreciates the value of the monograph: “From the founders to the contemporary benefactors – state, ecclesiastical, ministerial, National Bank, public personalities – from the altar servers to its visitors, the author has collected dense pages of facts and events, accomplishing a masterly work worthy of being hastily printed.” His Eminence Emilian (Vlad) Nica Crișanul, professor, Vicar Bishop of the Archdiocese of Arad, underlines in his recommendation for the publication of the book: “The monograph highlights the monastery’s special status as a place of prayer for airmen, sailors and, more recently, the 30th Guards Brigade “Mihai Viteazul,” the monastery having been re-created in the interwar period by General Paul Teodorescu, Minister of Air and Navy.” In his foreword, Prof. Ion I. Solcanu concludes: “Professor Valentin Ciorbea takes the reader through the troubled history of the settlement, which has passed through “ecstasy and agony” repeatedly over the centuries.” Undoubtedly, Professor Valentin Ciorbea’s work is the most complete historical monograph on the Dintr-un Lemn Monastery, one of the most important monuments of Romanian medieval art.”

We would like to mention the most recent publication of a book printed by the Publishing House of the Romanian Academy of Scientists and the Technical Publishing House: “Education through E-learning”, with a prestigious team of authors: Doina Banciu, Ben-Oni Ardelean, Larisa Ivașcu, Daniel Fodorean. The paper is structured in three parts: the first part presents theoretical aspects of the e-learning process, the second part presents a practical example of the implementation of digital learning, practiced in different countries, as a result of a study carried out in an international cooperation project, and the third part deals with a topic without which the e-learning process cannot take place, namely, the necessary technical resources and digital data collections as a support for information, documentation, training, education. The facilities of some of the most used platforms for e-learning and digital dialogue in Romania are briefly described. The book is intended to be a guide for those involved in the educational process (teachers, tutors, instructors, pupils, students), as well as for other people who, in today’s conditions, need to inform themselves, communicate and work without having to travel to the community.
The AOSR Awards for 2018 will be presented on 24 September 2020, at 11:00 a.m., in the Aula of the Central University Library “Carol I”, to a restricted audience (max. 50 people), respecting the rules of physical distance.
What will the school year look like? What about university? Prof. dr. doc. Alexandru-Vladimir Ciurea, Member A.O.Ș.R. To both questions in the title – what will the school year and the university year look like – the answer, so far, is an unacceptable one: we don’t know! The coronavirus pandemic has already roiled the end of the 2019-2020 school year, and it is clear that we must “negotiate” a way of life with this virus. Therefore, one of the priorities on the agenda of the authorities should be the organisation of the new school and university year. Any short-circuiting of the education process will have serious effects in the future. Of course, we must start from two premises: the virus exists and school cannot be interrupted! From here on, every chapter, every aspect that determines the continuation of the learning process and compliance with its quality standards must be analysed.….more

A pandemic of hostility and destruction Dr Alexandru Vlad Ciurea, full member of the AOSR The easiest thing is to destroy something, anything: a statue, a symbol, a car (if it is a police car, the “healthier” the destruction), a shop, etc. If, after the shop windows are smashed, the merchandise can be stolen, the more “serious” the destruction. The scale of the hostility-laden events is growing and spreading across the “civilised world”. The killing of George Floyd by a more than zealous policeman was the spark that ignited the world’s discontent. George Floyd became an icon, even though his life was a model for no one. Far be it from me to dispute in any way the injustice that can be seen with the naked eye in the action of the policeman who killed this man. And far be it from me to disapprove of demonstrations protesting police brutality. Racism is a plague, the world owes it to itself to draw attention to and campaign against discrimination of any kind. But I find the violence, the fanaticism of some demonstrators and, above all, the desire to erase from history any memory of times or characters whose deeds, committed many hundreds of years ago, do not fit the worldview of today’s people, far too exaggerated. And we take revenge on monuments and statues. Why?…..more
Project to develop a home test kit for SARS-CoV-2 infectionAn interdisciplinary team led by Dr. Ciprian Iliescu – Honorary Member of the Romanian Academy of Scientists – and formed by specialists from the Institute of Microtechnology (IMT Bucharest), the Faculty of Biology (University of Bucharest) and the University Emergency Hospital Bucharest, is developing a project aimed at increasing the capacity for early diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection in Romania. The project, selected for funding following the SOLUTIONS-2020 competition, has a strong social impact, aiming among other things to introduce a home testing kit and a regular testing kit for staff in public institutions, schools or hospitals. The proposed kits, based on the isothermal amplification of viral RNA (LAMP) and the use of saliva as a biological test sample, are a translation of methods used in the clinic into miniaturised point-of-care systems. The project also relies on the expertise of collaborators from prestigious institutions such as CNRS Paris/Orsay, Harvard Medical School, National University of Singapore and KAUST. The team aims to create a technology platform for the development of Point of Care systems and a start-up to create a micro-production test capability.

The Romanian Academy of Scientists strongly condemns the lies, denigration and manipulation directed against it and the Romanian academic movement Recently, some denigrating articles against the Romanian Academy of Scientists have appeared in the media. Clearly designed to denigrate, slander and discredit, they convey false or truncated information, which has the effect of misleading and manipulating public opinion. In addition to the contempt for the truth, the texts stand out for their low, degrading approach, objectified by terms unworthy of the intellectual level, rather typical of the tabloid press. The articles in question exert their slander not only against the Romanian Academy of Scientists, but against the entire academic movement in Romania, which includes, above all, the Romanian Academy and the branch academies. One of them launches a series of deeply unfounded, unfair and slanderous “value” judgments against the Romanian Academy. In view of these materials, the Scientific Presidium of the Romanian Academy of Scientists makes a series of specific clarifications to correctly inform the public opinion…. more

The post-pandemic world – challenges and solutions.
Prof. Dr. Grigore Tinică full member of AOSR
Although, by his nature, he is a rather discreet and modest person, even excessively weighted with public appearances, I don’t think there is anyone in our country’s medical elite who has not heard of Prof. Dr. Grigore Tinică. Not to mention the thousands of patients he has been there for. And because a recent survey by a public opinion polling company showed that more than 90% of Romanians are interested in the opinions of doctors regarding the management of the pandemic, I convinced him, as manager of the Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases Prof. Dr. George I.M. Georgescu Iasi, but also in view of his vast experience as a cardiovascular surgeon, to answer a series of questions about the present, but especially about the medical system and post-pandemic society.….more

Professor Dr Alexandru Vlad Ciurea, full member of AOSR We have a time horizon, we have a better health situation, the lifting of the state of emergency is relatively close.If we are not prudent, we risk returning to the current complicated situation! But the good news is not enough to start getting back to normal (as “normal” as it gets). Lifting the restrictions shifts the responsibility of living with the virus onto all of us. This means that it is up to us to respect the rules established during the state of emergency.The authorities will certainly make recommendations for the period after the lifting of the state of emergency. But recommendations are a double-edged sword. Because they are not accompanied by penalties – nor can they be! -, some of us may ignore them. Something that can affect us all. As we cannot and do not want to become policemen, only compliance with the recommendations can get us out of the crisis after 15 May.We need to be rational and strong.Let me give you an example. Parks will be reopened, but one of the recommendations will undoubtedly be to respect the physical distance between people. And another may be related to wearing the mask. Children will not go to school or kindergarten. This creates the conditions for overcrowding of parks and playgrounds. Failure to keep the recommended physical distance or lack of masks can be epidemiologically risky. But they can also be risky from another perspective. Conflicts can arise between parents whose children play too close together. Who are vying for a swing or a spot in the sandbox. Against the background of the stress created by the time we stayed at home, when some became unemployed or lost their jobs, when incomes fell, rates remained unpaid, it only takes a spark…. And we can “light up” in a way that in normal times we would not have done…..more

Dear Colleagues, Taking into account the Corona virus pandemic and the declaration of a state of emergency, starting March 16, for a period of two weeks, I propose that the headquarters and branch offices no longer work with the public and no longer organize any public event.
