The year started with Bazis Build team members, Ekaterina Perina, Olga Adushkina, and Archana Ramakrishna, launching in-person design workshops in Cairo (Egypt), Cape Town (South Africa), and Kolkata (India). The face-to-face research process is back full-swing.
Our team is ready for the challenges and strives for the best achievements yet to come our way. Bring it on, 2023!


Work in the rare disease space continued. Bazis Health team presented and brought together parents of children diagnosed with DMD for the Intellus Worldwide Virtual Summit in April. Nadia Bodkin from Rare360, joined our round table and discussed with us the role of advocacy groups in patient-pharma communication. Anastasia Leontyeva and Anastasia Tsykareva continued Bazis journey to help rare disease patients by volunteering their research skills for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Families Advocacy Group.
Intellus Clear Health Communication Task force, which Tatiana Barakshina is part of, was recognized with Intellus’ Impact Award for Advocacy.


The year of Big Adjustment, when we embraced hybrid work and perfected the online video interviewing skills, expanding the reach to audiences and geographies which traditionally were strictly off-line. Notable industry events with Bazis in-person presence included Sawtooth Software annual conference in San Antonio, TX, and the Research Expo 2020/21. Anna Shevalova and Ekaterina Nemenko formed a long-standing ties with community of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) caregivers and patients. This project initially started as ESOMAR’s Research Got Talent entry, and grew into a work-stream aiming to bring awareness and support for parents caring for children with this rare disease.


Bazis Build started 2020 in Las Vegas at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, North America’s largest construction trade show. While the schedule for travel changed because of COVID-19, our team stayed busy with virtual events, including The Quirk’s Virtual Event and Intellus Worldwide. Bazis Partner Tatiana Barakshina, alongside other members of Intellus Worldwide’s Health Literacy Initiative (HLI), received the 19th Annual Institute for Healthcare Advancement (IHA) Health Literacy Award in the Research category.
