17 May, RUDN hosted a strategic session «High-impact technologies in bio medicine» in the frame of 5-100 project workshop. More than 200 academics, practitioners and researchers gathered to discuss research and implementation of medical inventions.
Nanotheranostics, metabolomics, translational and personified medicine, distant surgery, medicinal drugs without side effects – these were the subjects discussed at the session. The key issue was making a chain of new medicinal products manufacturing from theoretic elaborations to testing and production.
Lyudmila Ogorodova, Vice Deputy minister of education and science noted that the efficiency of medical research is determined by the final product and joining interdepartmental efforts will help improve life quality.
5-100 project universities presented breakthrough elaborations in bio medicine – early diagnostics methods, using biodegradable silicon nanoparticles when treating lung and breast cancer, titanium and porous ceramic prostheses etc. Some elaborations can not only increase the efficiency of health care but make surgery and treatment 70% cheaper. Valery Stolyar, Head of RUDN Department of medical informatics shared experience of on-line surgery in remote regions, which is sometimes much more efficient than sending helicopters and paramedics.
Representatives of industrial companies, large pharmaceutical corporations and state structures are ready to support universities and invest in medical research.
L.Ogorodova suggested holding a series of thematic workshops as discussion and promotion sites for the most prospective medical research.
December 28, RUDN University Rector Oleg Yastrebov and QS World Merit Head of Partnerships Zoya Zaitseva signed an agreement on large-scale cooperation in achieving 17 sustainable development goals identified by the UN.
In a year, RUDN University rose from 43 to 31 place in the international QS University Rankings: Emerging Europe & Central Asia 2022. Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia showed the best results in international scientific relations, academic reputation and employer reputation categories.
RUDN has risen to the 28th position in the international ranking of environmentally friendly universities UI GreenMetric 2021 remaining the “greenest” university in Russia. This is the best result in the history of the university’s ranking participation since 2011. The list of the “greenest” universities was published on December 14. There are 956 universities from 80 countries, including 54 universities from Russia. The goal of the UI GreenMetric — assess universities according to campus development ecological sustainability and the energy-saving model of university management.
