The invention of RUDN University scientists win the first prize of the International Exhibition of Inventions INVENTIONS GENEVA in Switzerland

RUDN University won the first place at the 47th International Exhibition of Inventions INVENTIONS GENEVA in Geneva (Switzerland), presenting a neurosurgical stereo-endoscope - a device for endoscopic minimally invasive operations. The invention of Russian scientists also won the Special Prize of the International Strategic Technology Alliance ISTA.

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.

Reference:

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.

RUDN University Scientists Fit Pets in the Classification of Ecosystem Services

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.

Scientists Reveal the Water Column of the Yamal Lakes Can Be a Microbial Filter

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.
