New Steel to Double Service Life of Oil-Field Pipelines

On the request of PAO Severstal, one of the world`s largest metallurgical steel companies, NUST MISIS scientists have developed a new alloy called SeverCorr for oil-field pipelines that reduces the environmental risks of oil production and increases its efficiency.

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.

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.

NUST MISIS Scientists Present Metamaterial for Solar Cells and Nanooptics

A research team from the NUST MISIS Laboratory of Superconducting Metamaterials led by Alexey Basharin, Senior Lecturer and Candidate of Technical Sciences, has developed a metamaterial-dielectric that has unique characteristics and is easy to manufacture. This ease of access will allow researchers to use it to create the latest optical devices. The research results were published in Laser&Photonics Reviews.

Martin Hinoul: “Universities to Play a Key Role in the Economic Growth of Cities”

NUST MISIS together with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) have conducted a panel discussion at the Moscow Urban Forum, “Megapolis and University: Investment Model of Partnership”. Martin Hinoul, an international expert in the field of science & investment and the Business Development Director of the Research and Development Center at K.U. Leuven, was invited by NUST MISIS to be a special guest at the event.

NUST MISIS Enters TOP-100 of ARWU Ranking in Two Categories

For the second year in a row, NUST MISIS has been ranked in the Global Ranking of Academic Subjects (ARWU). According to ARWU-2018, NUST MISIS is in the TOP-100 in two categories: Metallurgical Engineering and Mining & Mineral Engineering. For Mining, the university was in the 76-100 group. With this year’s rankings, NUST MISIS is now one of six Russian universities included in the TOP-100 of the ARWU subject rankings.
