OXYGEN VS. NANOCHIP: Scientists Show the Vulnerability of a Promising Two-Dimensional Semiconductor to Air, and Discover New Catalyst
For the first time ever, an international team of scientists from NUST MISIS, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the University of Namur (Belgium), and Korea Research Institute for Standards & Science has managed to trace in details the structural changes of two-dimensional molybdenum disulfide under long-term environmental impact. The new data narrows the scope of its potential application in microelectronics and at the same time opens up new prospects for the use of two-dimensional materials as catalysts. The research results have been published in the international scientific journal Nature Chemistry.
On September 21st, 2018, NUST MISIS hosted the regional festival Honor Cup. The event was part of the All-Russian ICT competitions for the Huawei Honor Cup, which have been held since 2015 in order to increase motivation for self-education and the development of young specialists’ professional skills.
On September 20th, 2018, NUST MISIS hosted a meeting with Parliamentary representatives from the Republic of South Africa’s Committee on Higher Education and Training. NUST MISIS is intriguing to South Africans as a training center to work in conditions of the modern digital economy.
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.
NUST MISIS together with the International TRIZ Association are launching an online course on training specialists in the field of creative problem solving with the use of methodological tools.
NUST MISIS has validated its position in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings by entering the
Yu-kai Chou, world-renowned expert in gamification, guru of behavioral design, creator of the 8 Core Drives “Octalysis” and the author of “Actionable Gamification: Beyond Points, Badges, and Leaderboards” will give a lecture at the 5th annual #EdCrunch conference, Europe`s largest international conference on educational technologies, taking place in Moscow on October 1st and 2nd, 2018. He will talk about how to improve the efficiency of studies by playing.
An international team of researchers consisting of scientists from NUST MISIS and their German colleagues has developed a technology to study the behavior of orthopedic implants in laboratory conditions as close as possible to the human body. The technology is notable for its ethics: the research can be carried out in vitro — that is, without involving lab animals. The research article has been published in the Journal of the Mechanical Behavior of Biomedical Materials.
