NUST MISIS opened the Center of Russian Language and Culture in Tajikistan

An opening ceremony of the Center of Russian Language and Culture for schoolchildren, students, and teachers took place at the branch of the NUST MISIS in Dushanbe. The event was attended by representatives from the Embassy of Russia, the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan, the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Tajikistan, Rossotrudnichestvo, and heads of branches of Russian universities. This year, those interested in studying at NUST MISIS will be able to enroll in a preparatory department and start intensive study of the Russian language.

Scientists at NUST MISIS Develop “Digital Twins” for Managing Quantum Systems

Researchers from the National University of Science and Technology (NUST MISIS) and the Russian Quantum Center (RQC) have developed a model for managing complex quantum systems. This innovation opens new possibilities for faster information transfer and allows for better control over the system’s dynamics. The proposed method is beneficial for reducing errors and suppressing noise in quantum devices. It can be used to study various effects in many-body physics and to search for new quantum materials. Modifying the model allows for observing systems at a macroscopic level, paving the way for managing quantum systems across different phases of matter.

NUST MISIS Creates Prototype Patch for Localized Chemotherapy

Researchers at the MISIS University have developed a prototype of a polymer patch designed to prevent the recurrence of malignant tumors by releasing chemotherapy drugs in a controlled manner over the course of a year. The patch is implanted at the site of the primary tumor removal, ensuring that the drugs are delivered directly to the area where residual tumor cells are concentrated. The biopolymers composing the patch safely dissolve in the body within 2-3 years. This gradual release of drugs over several months enhances the effectiveness of postoperative chemotherapy and reduces the side effects of treatment.

Vietnamese students from MISIS University had a meeting with the Vice Minister of Education from their country.

Vice Minister of Education of Vietnam Hoang Minh Son met with Vietnamese students studying in Russian universities. The participants discussed employment opportunities for graduates, living expenses for foreign students in Russia, and opportunities for expanding cooperation between universities and businesses of both countries. The meeting was attended by over 150 Vietnamese students from 16 different universities, including five students from NUST MISIS.

Experts from NUST MISIS will train employees of municipal services in Ghana in effective communication skills with the population

Representatives of the Municipal Assembly of Korle Klottey in Accra, the capital of the Republic of Ghana, have signed an agreement with MISIS University for cooperation in the field of communications. The Municipal Assembly is interested in developing customer-oriented communication skills among its employees. The delegation was led by Samuel James Nii Adjei Tawiah, the municipal chief executive of Korle Klottey. He noted that the municipal administration provides grants for training specialists in waste management at Russian universities and is preparing a similar program in public relations. The parties discussed the creation of media communication courses for Ghanaian citizens at NUST MISIS.

NUST MISIS is developing cooperation with universities of China

A delegation from universities of the People’s Republic of China visited NUST MISIS to discuss prospective areas of cooperation. The guests emphasized the importance of joint development in science and education, as well as exchange programs for master’s and doctoral students. The meeting was organized with the support of Beijing WECO International Education and Culture Co., Ltd.

Scientists at NUST MISIS have identified the optimal alloy manufacturing mode for endoprostheses

A more efficient technology for producing a new generation titanium alloy has been proposed at the MISIS University. The results will allow for the future creation of stronger hip joint endoprostheses using 3D printing, which do not contain alloying components, do not cause negative immune reactions from the body, and take into account the physiological characteristics of patients. This will help avoid repeat implant replacement surgeries for many patients.

Scientists from NUST MISIS have created a composite shape memory material for 4D printing

Researchers at the MISIS University have developed a new magnetically sensitive polymer composite material that is promising for 4D printing, a technology in which materials can change their shape over time. The material is also suitable for creating adaptive medical devices, such as soft tissue fixators and “self-setting” bone implants. The composite, consisting of polylactide and cobalt ferrite, has the ability to heat up quickly under the influence of a high-frequency alternating magnetic field and recover its shape well after deformation, without causing harmful effects on the body.

Scientists from NUST MISIS have found out how to improve the alloy for maxillofacial implants

Based on the experiments, scientists from NUST MISIS have identified a methodology that improves the balance of strength and ductility of the biodegradable magnesium alloy used in biomedicine, particularly for maxillofacial implants. The peculiarity of the material lies in the fact that after the operation, it gradually dissolves in the human body. Fixing elements (screws, pins, plates, etc.) made of magnesium alloy are completely replaced by newly formed tissue, eliminating the need for a second operation to remove temporary elements from the human body. In recent years, researchers have been interested in the magnesium, zinc, and gallium alloy (Mg-Zn-Ga). The addition of zinc and gallium improves the mechanical and corrosion properties, allowing the integrity of the implant to be maintained for a certain period necessary for the healing process. Zinc contributes to the strengthening of the material, while gallium enhances its ductility, imparts antimicrobial properties, and increases bone tissue density. Due to its characteristics, this alloy is much closer to human bone tissue than titanium.

Researchers at NUST MISIS have developed a platform for detecting diseases at early stages

Scientists from the MISIS University, in collaboration with colleagues from Skoltech and the National Medical Research Center for Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatology named after Academician V.I. Kulakov, have developed a platform for detecting clinical biomarkers of diseases in human biological fluids in real-time. It could serve as the first step towards creating a portable lab-on-a-chip for early detection of cancer, neurodegenerative, and cardiovascular diseases, as well as for monitoring treatment.
