Medicinal drugs prototypes, innovative pharmaceutical production and search for medicines for Alzheimer - RUDN chemists open «Molecular design and synthesis of innovation compounds for medicine» scientific center
RUDN researchers are working together on heterocycle compounds to use them in medicine.
In December, «Molecular design and synthesis of innovation compounds for medicine» scientific center was opened. The Center is headed by professor Andrey Malkov (Loughborough University, Great Britain) and has already attracted chemists from Italy, India, China and Indonesia
RUDN researchers are looking for more efficient ways of producing more qualitative and cheaper products and synthesizing new substances including new biologically active compounds for medicine.
Viktor Khrustalev, Director of RUDN United Chemical Institute: «Currently we are on a fundamental stage. In our laboratory we can create prototypes for further testing and industrial production of substances for medicine and other fields».
RUDN researchers are working together with Italian colleagues from Bari University have already started a project on improving medicines for Alzheimer experimenting with nitrogen-containing heterocycle compounds and showing the possibility of more qualitative and cheaper product. In the laboratory some chemical reactions last 2-4 minutes instead of regular 3-4 days and are cleaner and safer.
Chemists will start with a precise mathematical model of the process using digital technologies, thus shortening the experimental period and increasing efficiency.
The Center is opened in the frame of 5-100 Project.
RUDN University is one of the three winners in the country. The Scientific Research Institute of Molecular and Cellular Medicine of RUDN Institute of Medicine will become a clinical base for a 4-year project in the field of genetic research for the treatment of soft tissue sarcomas.
The chemist of RUDN together with colleagues from Iran and Spain created a catalyst based on palladium and nickel for the oxidation of cyclohesane in the production of adipic acid, which is used for the production of cleaning products, food dyes and other substances. The new catalyst made it possible to double the consumption of cyclohexane.
On February 28, 2023, invited lector Dương Thu Hằng (Head of Department of Vietnamese Literature, Faculty of Philology, Thai Nguyen University, Vietnam) gave lecture entitled “Intercultural communication in the context of global integration and the fourth industrial revolution” within the framework of academic and methodological online seminar of the Foreign Languages Department of the Agrarian and Technological Institute of RUDN University. The lecture was held online via Microsoft Teams. Languages — the Vietnamese language, the English language & the Russian language.
