Leading specialist of the University of Basel (Switzerland) heads RUDN research laboratory
Professor Jörg Huwyler is a leading specialist in targeted drug delivery, member of the Swiss Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences, author of 13 patents, 142 peer-reviewed scientific articles (h-index: 38). One of his innovative publications on the delivery of antitumor agents to the rat brain due to immunoliposomes has been cited more than 650 times.
The expert calls the pharmaceutical technology a translation science, as it very often helps to transfer the results of basic research to clinical applications. Several drugs developed in his Swiss laboratory are used in clinical trials.
The joint team of the scientific laboratory for the study of innovative methods of drug delivery is already participating in the project to increase the bioavailability of the drug for the treatment of AIDS by using hot melt extrusion.
The work is also carried out in the field of creating a combined diagnostic drug that will enable drugs adequate choice and dosage regimen in the treatment of cancer.
One of the goals of RUDN research is the development of individual approaches in the treatment of cancer patients through the use of innovative pharmaceutical technologies and metabolic tools - the transition to personalized medicine.
RUDN University scientists conducted a survey among residents of Moscow and found out the reasons why they have pets. The results proved that pets should be included in the classification of ecosystem services. This will help to consider the interests of pet owners in urban planning and management.
RUDN mathematicians investigated the possibility of combining 5 GNR technology and WiGig — a high-frequency range that allows you to transfer data at speeds up to 10 Gbps. This will smooth traffic fluctuations in 5Gnetworks and cope with user requests.
Scientists from the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology RAS, RUDN University, St. Petersburg State University and the Tyumen Scientific Centre SB RAS studied the microbial communities from several lakes of the Yamal Peninsula. It turned out that methanotrophs (bacteria that use methane as a source of energy) consume methane more actively in the deep mature lakes of the peninsula than in small thermokarst lakes. In this regard, methane emissions into the atmosphere from the surface of deep lakes are low, and only small (relatively younger thermokarst lakes with constitutional ground ice) can make a significant contribution to methane emissions in the north of Western Siberia. Thus, bacteria perform an important function for the climate balance — they reduce the emission of methane into the atmosphere.
