RUDN University agronomists have proposed a new scheme for fertilizing winter wheat, which allows increasing the yield by 68%. The key to this is in the combination of nitrogen and growth regulators.
RUDN biologists have studied microorganisms that can survive in metalworking fluids. The results will allow “picking up” bacteria and fungi that can process toxic waste fluids into a harmless product.
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.
RUDN University biologist has determined what determines the activity of soil microbes and how climate change affects it
The RUDN biologist named the main driving factor that determines the activity of soil microorganisms in different ecosystems. The results will help to better understand the processes that occur and will occur due to climate change.
Chemists of the RUDN University and Moscow State University (MSU) have determined how the oxylipin profile in the brain changes with an increased glucose level. The results will help to create new drugs for the treatment of epilepsy and other neurodegenerative diseases that occur due to hyperglycemia.
RUDN doctors have discovered possible causes of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome in pregnant women, a rare systemic vascular disease with an unfavorable outcome.
RUDN University soil scientist created the Root-o-mat program for processing data on enzymes in the soil
RUDN University soil scientist together with colleagues from Germany developed a program that visualizes the activity of enzymes in the soil. It standardizes and simplifies the processing of results and analysis of images that are obtained by zymography.
RUDN University chemists derived molecules that can assemble into complex structures using chlorine and bromine halogen atoms. They bind to each other as “velcro” — chlorine “sticks” to bromine, and vice versa. As a result supramolecules are assembled from individual molecules. The obtained substances will help to create supramolecules with catalytic, luminescent, conducting properties. The study is published in Mendeleev Communications.
RUDN University chemist proposed a new method to create catalysts on a porous silicon matrix with metal nanoparticles. Efficient catalysts for organic reactions are obtained, for example, for the synthesis of vanillin, which is in demand in the food and perfume industry.
RUDN biologists have determined how the body’s response to lack of oxygen at the molecular level changes with age
RUDN University biologists have determined how the body’s response to lack of oxygen at the molecular level changes with age. These are the first results in this direction — previously it was known only about the change with age in the overall resistance to low oxygen levels.

On November 23, 2022, at the invitation of the Department of Foreign Languages of Agrarian and Technological Institute, within the framework of the scientific and methodological seminar “Linguistic methodological foundations of the formation of a translator’s ‘secondary language personality’ and the creation of modern educational complexes,” Mario Pace, Resident Associate Professor of Italian at the Department of Languages and Humanities in Education within the Faculty of Education of the University of Malta, language consultant to the Minister of Education and Employment on foreign language teaching & learning. Delivered an online lecture “Languages and translation in the context of interlanguage communication” (“Languages and translation in the context of intercultural communication”). More than 80 RUDN and the Russian-Armenian University (RAU, Yerevan) participants joined the online lecture on the Microsoft Teams platform. The working language — English.
