Mathematicians from RUDN University have developed a computational model that allows predicting the mobility of T-lymphocytes, immune cells that recognise and destroy viruses. The model will help, in particular, in the treatment of the immune system disorders, including those that can lead to cancer, and in the development of HIV vaccines.
A RUDN chemist has synthesized an electrocatalyst based on gold nanoparticles with organic ligands, which can trigger both hydrogen production reactions and oxygen reduction reactions in fuel cells. The yield of products with the new catalyst was twice as high as when using a traditional platinum-based catalyst.
It has been a month since the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia joined the #мейкерыпротивковид (makers against Covid) movement and has been helping doctors and patients with 3D printing. Engineer Mark Dyachenko from the Center for Additive and Foreign Technologies of RUDN University used a 3D-printer to print 1,149 adapters for mask filters, which are used by doctors in more than 15 hospitals in Moscow.
In Rwanda, Uganda and Ethiopia representatives of RUDN University and ROSATOM held open lectures on the features of Russian higher education in the field of nuclear energy.
RUDN scientists explored how reduction of deuterium in water influences reactions in living organisms. As was found that reactions went in less time comparing to those when deuterium was changed into hydrogen. The article was published in Chemical Engineering Journal.
After finishing school, Elisaveta Batyrova never expected to devote her life to psychology or weight-lifting, let alone combine the two things she liked to do into one specialization! Today, the future sports psychologist is sure: entering RUDN University (Peoples' Friendship University of Russia) was her golden ticket.
