Uriie Azizova devoted her life to studying medicinal plants of Crimea which were used in traditional medicine. She traveled through the entire peninsula collecting stories of Crimean tatars about medicinal plants and their properties. During the expedition she collected information about 127 types of medicinal plants. Uriie Azizova was going to submit a dissertation but the deportation of Crimean Tatars did not allow her to do this. She ceased her scientific work and concealed her origin for a long time.
