RUDN University mathematician together with colleagues from India and France for the first time studied in detail the system of coexistence of three species of living creatures in the wild. The results help to understand what parameters determine the extinction andли survivalof species, and how the number of species changes in space and time.
RUDN University chemist with his colleagues from Portugal has developed two types of coating based on new coordination polymers with silver. Both compounds were successfully tested against four common pathogens.
RUDN researchers have created and tested a method for processing titanium dental implants. It turned out that theanoslos of graphene on the surface of titanium improve its interaction with stem cells,which are placed on the implant so that it better "takes root".Thanks to this method ofprocessing, stem cells are better kept on the surface, multiply and turn into the desired cells.
Geologists have proven the effectiveness of a new method for determining the age of pyrites — minerals that appear during the formation of ore, during tectonic and sedimentary processes. The new method is simpler and more accurate than the classical one, besides it does not require a large number of samples for analysis.
Physician RUDN University together with colleagues from Kazakhstan and the United States investigated inflammatory processes in the respiratory tract in workers of the metalworking industry. They are exposed to constant exposure to particulate matter (inhale metal particles) and this can have negative health effects. According to the composition of exhaled air, doctors assessed for which areas of work in production the risk of inflammatory processes in the lungs is more pronounced.
RUDN mathematicians have proposed a model for calculating the optimal parameters of a 5G network for virtual reality applications. It is simpler than analogues and at the same time is not inferior to them in efficiency.
RUDN University chemist together with colleagues from India, Russia and South Africa showed that green microalgae Chlorella sorokiniana can be used for cleaning wastewater from a toxic pyrene. Algae absorb pyrene and at the same time change their metabolism to adapt to stressful conditions. As a result, more lipids are formed in algae, from which safe biofuels can be efficiently synthesized.
Elizaveta Krivonosova is studying Arts and Humanities at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. She became one of four students of RUDN University — finalists of the research competition of the forum “Science of the Future — Science of the Young”. Read about deconstructivism and fashion in an interview.
RUDN chemists have proposed catalysts for the production of propylene and ethylene. The new catalyst is based on minerals and makes synthesis cheaper, more efficient and more convenient.
Chemists from Russia and the USA have created a protocol for the synthesis of potential anti-cancer drugs. It allows obtaining promising compounds “in one pot” — that is, by mixing all the reagents in a single reaction.
The RUDN biologist named the main driving factor that determines the activity of soil microorganisms in different ecosystems. The results will help to better understand the processes that occur and will occur due to climate change.
RUDN University physician together with colleagues from Kazakhstan conducted the first study in Kazakhstan onthe standard of living on parameters related to physical and psychological health. Among other things, thestudy showed the three most harmful professions for psychological health.
