RUDN has summed up the results of a competition of scientific projects in the direction of "Modern Languages"

The first winner is the project “Linguistic Cultural Identity and Communication Style in Different Socio-Cultural Contexts”, the supervisor is Tatyana Larina (Russia) and the co-director is Daniel Kadar (Institute of Linguistics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences).

The goal of the project is to identify and systematize the ethnocultural features of communication of representatives of different cultures in the form of dominant features and communication styles. In the conditions of modern migration turbulence, the search for a solution to the problems of intercultural interaction is important for the migration attractiveness of countries.

The second winner is the project “Functional Dynamics and Representations of Languages and Cultures of Internal and External Migration in an Urban Environment”, scientific advisor is Svetlana Moskvicheva (Russia), co-director is Alain Dominique Vio (France).

The research focuses on group characteristics of migration languages. The goal of the project is to identify and describe the most characteristic signs that determine the dynamics of the languages of migration of a city. The Armenian, Azerbaijani and Tatar communities of Moscow were selected as specific migrant communities. Based on the results of the research, it is planned to predict the future of these languages in the context of modern migration processes.

Biologists from RUDN University discovered the secret of flaxseed oil with long shelf life

Biologists from RUDN University working together with their colleagues from the Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Flax studied the genes that determine the fatty acid composition in flaxseed oil and identified polymorphisms in six of them. The team also found out what gene variations could extend the shelf life of flaxseed oil. This data can be used to improve the genetic selection of new flax breeds. The results were published in the BMC Plant Biology journal.

Dentists from RUDN University Presented a New Classification of Root Canal Shape Changes

Individual characteristics of the shape and cross-section of the root canal are one of the main issues for dentists. When treating a root canal, a doctor needs to properly clean it, fill it, and carry out a rebuilding procedure so that a canal is sealed. The first stage of endodontic treatment requires detailed knowledge of root canal anatomy. A team of dentists from RUDN University studied and classified various changes in root canal shapes. The new classification will help doctors avoid diagnostic errors, better select their tools, and treat patients more efficiently.

A chemist from RUDN developed a green catalyst for pharmaceutical and industrial chemistr

Many production facilities (e.g. plastic manufacturers, pharma companies, and others) use nanocatalysts that contain palladium—an expensive component that is not sustainably produced. A chemist from RUDN University found a way to reduce palladium consumption and to make its manufacture more eco-friendly. He developed a catalyst based on a substance that comes from plant waste. Using his invention, manufacturers could cut palladium consumption in half. Moreover, new catalysts can be reused multiple times without any decrease in efficiency.
