Query: archival fonds of institute of tropical diseases in the USSR?

Dear colleagues,

While my main forte is an entirely different subfield, I am looking for any clues about the archival fonds of Институт медицинской паразитологии и тропической медицины имени Марциновского (отдел профилактики тропических болезней) and кафедра тропических болезней Центрального Института Усовершенствования врачей, as well as any fonds that would likely have information about researchers working in the WHO as consultants on the behalf of the Soviet Union. Any hints will be useful.

 

Thank you,

Orel Beilinson

CFP: Sites of Contest: Cold War Cultural Diplomacy and the Global South

Culture has served as a “weapon of the struggle” during the Cold War. It played a central role in leftist literary circles, socialist realist poetry and muralism, as well as in the CIA-backed Congress for Cultural Freedom, whose artist groups embraced Abstract Expressionism and modernist poetry.
