Meetings with the foreign counterparts and representatives of Georgian Government held by Maka Mantskava for the last 10 years made it possible to establish a new direction of biomedicine in Georgia – clinical hemhorheology. They started doing hemorheological examinations in pilot first aid facilities and hospital sector objects. A new module has been created in high medical schools, the syllabus of which was created by Maka Mantskava.

She was the organizer of the First International Conference in Rheology (http://www.biomedicine.org.ge/ge/news.php?page=2, http://bsu.edu.ge/main/page/4591/index.html), School of Rheology and Microcirculation (http://mantskava.wix.com/lighting-design-ru-r), Second International Conference in Evidence Medicine (www.ebm.am), and Fifth International School in Biorheology (http://biorheo2015.bsb-bg.eu). As a result of her chairmanship Georgian Union of Rheologists gained a membership of the European Society of Clinical Rheology and Microcirculation.
