Arkady Dvorkovich, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, recently opened the NUST MISIS Center for Industrial Prototyping of High Complexity. During his opening ceremony speech, the Deputy Prime Minister noted that the Center is at a global level in its expertise.
A group of scientists from NUST MISIS, Lomonosov Moscow State University, and the Medical Nanotechnology Company led by Dr. Alexander Majouga have started preclinical trials of Russia`s first technology for oncological therapy on the basis of iron oxide nanomedicines, combining the capabilities of hyperthermia and chemical therapy.
For the first time, NUST MISIS has entered the Shanghai Academic Ranking of World Universities by Subject for 2017. The University is listed in the group of “76-100” in the Metallurgical Engineering subject. Only five Russian universities managed to enter the top-100 of Shanghai`s Global Ranking of Academic Subjects for 2017.
The Elsevier publishing house published a fundamental work which brings together all the latest knowledge about one of the most promising technologies of the 21st century — “The Encyclopedia of Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis”.
NUST MISIS plans to launch a laboratory to implement projects for collaborations on LHCb and SHiP experiments. Its employees will work on the implementation of four major projects — two of them through LHCb collaboration and the other two through SHiP collaboration. The department will be led by CERN project managers.
Scientists from the NUST MISIS Energy Efficiency Center have developed an efficient and quick way to produce the material from which high-efficient thermoelectric generators used for spacecrafts are made. The material is able to directly convert thermal energy into electrical energy.
The Center for Infrastructure Collaboration & Partnership MegaScience was created at NUST MISIS. Professor Andrei Golutvin from the Department of High Energy Physics at the Imperial College in London, and a key participant of the monumental SHiP experiment at CERN (Geneva, Switzerland), will lead the center.
NUST MISIS materials scientists led by Georgii Frolov, Associate Professor in the Physical Chemistry department at NUST MISIS, together with specialists from Vyatka State University, have developed a unique composition of a dental rinse which significantly changes the composition of teeth microflora, destroying plaque-causing bacteria by up to 83% while also reducing gingivitis. Clinical testing of the rinse has been carried out on volunteers at the Faculty of Stomatology (Dentistry) at Kirov State Medical Academy.
