The project of RUDN scientists is the winner of the International Environmental Award "EcoWorld" in the nomination "Ecology and Human Health"

The program manager is Professor Anatoly Skalny, Head of the Department of Medical Elementology, RUDN Medical Institute, Vice-President of the Institute of Microelements of UNESCO.

We conducted research on the content of chemical elements in the hair of more than 60,000 Russians. Hair can accumulate information, while a blood test can show problems only during an exacerbation of diseases. So, for example, it can be determined by hair that five years ago a person lived in an area poor in calcium and worked in industries related to electroplating or welding. The quality and composition of water, air and soil directly affect our body. This was known in the middle of the last century. Unfortunately, more such a large-scale work on soil analysis has not been carried out. And so sorry. After all, knowing in which areas, for example, lack of iodine or zinc in soil or water, we could produce enriched products that would restore the imbalance of useful substances in the body, thereby significantly improving the quality of life.

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.
