Cancer on Notice: Scientists Develop Platform to Kill Cancer Cells

The new treatment will serve as both diagnosis and treatment of malignant tumors. This breakthrough in the technologies of cancer diagnosis and treatment was made by an interdisciplinary Russian-German collaboration of chemists, physicists, and biologists from NUST MISIS, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University (RNRMU), and the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany).

NUST MISIS and MGIMO Start Training Miners-Internationals

On July 29th, 2018, the first group of students was accepted into the unique Master`s degree program “Strategic Management of International Companies in the Field of Mineral Resources”. The program, developed and implemented by NUST MISIS and MGIMO, is a part of the Interuniversity Educational Center’s project Training Managers for the Russian Mining Industry. The Center was created in 2016 through the NUST MISIS College of Mining, and is overseen by Professor Georgy L. Krasnyansky, the Chairman of the Board of Directors at “Karakan-Invest” and a member of the NUST MISIS Mining Advisory Council.

Merge Attack: Scientists Find Mechanism of Virus Penetration into Living Cell

A joint research team from the A.N. Frumkin Institute of Physical Chemistry & Electrochemistry (RAS), NUST MISIS, and MIPT, as well as participants from several other research centers, have described the biophysical principles of influenza’s infiltration into the body’s cells. The researchers have created a theoretical model describing the mechanical properties of the lipid membranes of both the virus and the targeted cells, making it possible to connect the mechanisms of membranes with cell resistance. A series of three articles (1, 2, 3) containing the new research have been published in special editions of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences.

Russian School Students Develop “Green” Technology for Concrete Production

The “Green” Concrete Technology project has named the winner of the “New Materials” category at the “Sirius” educational center in Sochi. The winning team of high school students developed an energy-efficient method of producing high-quality concrete from waste metallurgy for civil and road construction. This is the second time that NUST MISIS together with Russia`s leading metallurgical companies has organized the “New Materials” category as part of the “Big Challenges” educational shift.

NUST MISIS Holds Blockchain-Laboratory at “Island 10-21”

From July 10th to 21st, 2018, “Island 10-21”, Russia`s first educational program for intensive employee training for the digital economy, was held on Russky Island in Vladivostok. NUST MISIS presented a four-day laboratory called “Introduction to the practice of blockchain applications” with participation from Aleksey Naiden, a leading developer at Apple, and Seraphim Bakharev, CORE’s leading UX-designer.

Scientists Create “Impossible” Materials in Simple Way

Scientists from NUST MISIS and colleagues from the University of Bayreuth, the University of Münster (Germany), the University of Chicago (U.S.), and Linköping University (Sweden) have created nitrides, a material previously considered impossible to obtain. More amazing, they have shown that the material can be obtained using a very simple method of direct synthesis. Articles about the revolutionary research results have been published in Nature Communications and Angew Chem Int Ed.

#EdCrunch2018: World Experts for Russia’s Digital Economy Leaders

On July 21, the first educational intensive course of the National Technology Initiative University (University of NTI) “20.35” for the leaders of technological development in Russia #Island10-21 on Russky Island (Vladivostok) was completed. Global conference for technology in education #EdCrunch2018 became a general educational partner of the event and organized speeches of 25 world-class experts.
