RUDN University soil scientist for the first time investigated how soil microorganisms resist changes due to human agricultural activities in karst regions.
Nanoparticles are used for targeted delivery of drugs, toxic agents for the destruction of cancer cells, as well as for diagnosticsand. In the treatment of cancer, drugs are increasingly combined with nanomaterials, since in combination they affectthe causes and manifestations ofthedisease from different sides. Gold nanoparticles are well suited for therapy and diagnosis, since they are inert, easily penetrate into tumor cells and linger in them. Researchers at IBHTN and RUDN University studied which parameters of gold nanoparticles determine their success in cancer therapy.
The RUDN University chemist together with colleagues from Portugal created catalysts based on vanadium, supported on a carbon framework. They can be used, for example, to produce adipic acid. The use of the framework increased the efficiency of the catalysts, made them reusable and allowed the reaction to be carried out with microwave radiation instead of the more energy-consuming oil heating.
October 20, the “Surgery of the Skull Base” conference gathered together 30 leading neurosurgeons from 8 countries. The conference was organized by Albert Sufianov, Director of the Research Institute of Neurosurgery of the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia, Chief Physician of the Federal Center for Neurosurgery in Tyumen, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Honored Doctor of the Russian Federation.
October 8, RUDN University students and 800 schoolchildren set off on a journey through the diverse world of university science. 2 halls, 11 classrooms and a co-working zone - the Science Festival was all over the main building. In addition to the traditional interactive exhibition, RUDN researchers held 26 new format events: short half-hour non-stop master classes.
October 4-7, 2022 RUDN University held The Second RUDN University Space Week, dedicated to the World Space Week. The theme of this year’s World Space Week is “Space and sustainability”. More than 330 people from 48 countries from Australia to Canada, and from Ecuador to Japan, took part in the event.
October 4, the Research and Educational Resource Center (NRRC) of innovative technologies for immunophenotyping, digital spatial profiling and ultrastructural analysis (molecular morphology) was opened at RUDN.
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.
