The following patents were created with the participation of Gia Gigolashvili:

  1. Patent AU 2018 14736 – Method of cleaning water contaminated with 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene using blue-green algae Spirulina – Sakpatenti
  2. Patent AU 2018 14896 – A method of cleaning water contaminated with dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) using blue-green algae spirulina – Sakpatenti

From 2002-2018, Gia Gigolashvili won a number of scientific grant competitions. The latest grant is related to the development of a new technology to clean up chemically polluted waters using the blue-green algae, spirulina.

Since 2020, he has been a Genomics consultant at the Center for Biomedical Research and Genetic Diagnostics.
