The invention of RUDN University scientists win the first prize of the International Exhibition of Inventions INVENTIONS GENEVA in Switzerland
Alexey Shkarubo, professor at the Department of Nervous Diseases and Neurosurgery at the Medical Institute of RUDN University, presented the invention for the first time at an exhibition in Geneva. Neurosurgical Stereo-Endoscope is a device for performing closed surgeries with minimal intervention into the body. The design feature of the device is a small outer diameter - only 4 mm. The invention provides for obtaining stereo images of objects, which allow to improve the quality of surgical care by improving the image quality and minimizing trauma. The exhibit can also be used to build neurosurgical stereo-endoscopes. Alexey Shkarubo, Naum Pinkhasik, Vladimir Semenov, Alexander Baygeldinov and Vasily Myrza worked on the project. Participants and visitors could familiarize themselves with the prototype of the invention.
In 2019, the event was marked by a high proportion of inventions related to health care, medicine, environment and safety.
The designs proposed for the demonstration were peer-reviewed and, based on the results of the work of the international jury, the best of them were awarded various medals, special prizes and diplomas, which contributed to their successful promotion to international markets.
The International Invention Exhibition in Geneva is the most important annual event in the world dedicated exclusively to inventions. All new items are exhibited for the first time. The purpose of the exhibition is to promote the development of the intellectual property market, the introduction of innovations in production and the development of contacts between developers and investors.
April 10-14, 2019 in the International Exhibition Center PALEXPO at the 47th International Exhibition of Inventions INVENTIONS GENEVA, China, Thailand, France, Italy, Malaysia, Switzerland, Iran, Spain and Russia presented their exhibits.
A specialist in spacecraft movement control analyzed the process of placing vehicle stages, boosters, and other space debris into the so-called disposal orbit and suggested cleaning lower orbits up with a spacecraft that has modules with engine units on board. These modules will attach to space debris objects and move them away. As for the geostationary orbit, a preferable way to clean it up would be a towing spacecraft that transports space debris objects into the disposal orbit.
A biologist from RUDN University studied the development of the immune response in prepubertal male and female animals. According to her, the severity and mortality of infectious and inflammatory diseases at this age depend not on the sex hormones, but mainly on the chromosome set or karyotype.
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.
