PhD student of RUDN Medical Institute speaks at the V Congress of the Euro-Asian Society for Infectious Diseases
The event is aimed at sharing experience in the use of advanced medical technologies in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infectious diseases in adults and children, as well as in coordinating efforts to improve medical care for infectious patients.
Among the scientific directions of the Congress are biosafety, bacterial infections, viral infections, mycoses, tropical and parasitic diseases, hospital infections, immune disorders in infectious diseases, the problem of resistance of pathogens and rational antimicrobial chemotherapy, laboratory diagnostics,
Ekaterina Samotolkina, a PhD student of RUDN Department of Infectious Diseases with courses in epidemiology and phthisiology presented studies on the causes of death of severe HIV-infected patients in the intensive care unit, risk factors for cardiovascular disease in HIV-infected patients over the age of 40, analysis of the definition of insufficient adherence to treatment in the cascade of medical care for HIV-infected patients, and malaria situation on the territory of Ukraine. The materials are published in the Annex to the Journal "Infectology", indexed in Scopus.
The event was organized by the RF Ministry of Health, the Euro-Asian Society for Infectious Diseases, the Ministry of Health of the Novosibirsk Region, the Novosibirsk State Medical University, the Children's Scientific and Clinical Center for Infectious Diseases, St. Petersburg Public Organization "Humans and human health".

October 6, the Nobel Committee announced the 2021 Nobel Prize Winners in Chemistry. They were scientists Benjamin List (Germany) and David Macmillan (USA) for new methods of molecular synthesis. RUDN chemists know Professor Liszt personally — in 2019, the researcher came to participate in the university conference.
The Nobel Committee in Stockholm has named the laureates in Medicine — David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian. They discovered how temperature or touch, for example, is transformed into human sensations.
Allowing for quantum corrections, the Einstein-Lovelock theory describes black holes with an equation that contains an infinite number of terms. However, according to a RUDN University physicist, the geometry of a black hole in this theory can be presented in a compact form, and a limited number of terms can suffice to describe the observed values. This could help scientists study black holes in theories with quantum corrections to Einstein’s equations.
