Piercing at the Blink of an Eye: NUST MISIS Scientists Develop New Technology of Alloy Steel Rolling
A research team from the NUST MISIS Department of Pressure Metal Treatment has developed a new technology which simplifies the process of hot rolling seamless pipes made of alloy and high-alloy steel. The consistent use of two mandrels, tools that turn an unruly steel billet into a hollow “sleeve”, is a distinctive feature of the technology. The research article on this development to accelerate the process and improve the wear resistance of tools has been published in The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology.
Spotting the Virus:Russian-Canadian Research Development to Increase the Effectiveness of Viral Cancer Therapy
Scientists have learned how to observe the processes of oncolytic viruses in cancer cells in real time. For the first time ever, a group of scientists from NUST MISIS and the University of Calgary (Canada) has managed to apply the technique of intravital microscopy to study the interaction of oncolytic viruses with both tumor and healthy cells of the body. The researchers have presented a technological development that can visually observe how the virus behaves in the tissues of a living organism. The research results have been published in international scientific journal Molecular Therapy Oncolytics.
