  • Researchers at ITMO Create More Durable Blue Perovskite Diodes for RGB Screens

    ITMO University scientists have found a new way of creating blue-emitting perovskite nanocrystals that makes them more stable, while their light doesn’t change to green overtime, unlike existing counterparts. Such light sources can serve as a platform for manufacturing of RGB displays for TVs and phones with a higher quality color rendering, which will also be cheaper than their analogs. The results of the project are described in a paper published in  ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces.


  • ITMO’s Monday Science Roundup #51

    Unlike Area 51, we keep no secrets! Here’s everything that has been going on in the ITMO universe these two weeks – from ground-breaking research to inspiring career prospects. Read on!


  • ITMO Scientists Suggest Platform to Study Cell Communication and Assist Targeted Drug Delivery

    Researchers from ITMO University have developed a platform that will help study extracellular cell communication. Unlike its counterparts, the new platform can identify the precise location of cells without interrupting their function – this way, it’s possible to observe cells in their natural state. This solution will facilitate rehabilitation of cell communication after injuries and help create materials for targeted drug delivery. The new platform is described in an article published in Materials & Design.


  • ITMO Researchers Discover Connection Between Gut Microbiome and Melanoma Treatment

    Having analyzed metagenome data from hundreds of microbiome samples, scientists from ITMO University have found out how the composition of the gut microbiome affects the efficacy of melanoma treatment. In the future, the discovered link can be used to develop treatment plans for cancer patients, as well as improve the efficacy of melanoma treatment. The results of the research are described in a paper published in Life Science Alliance.


  • ITMO’s Monday Science Roundup #50

    Big numbers – big news! In this jubilee installment of our regular news digest, we’re digging into the top stories at ITMO, be it promising (and unusual) research, profiles of remarkable scientists and developers, or exciting opportunities for those at the very beginning of their path in science and technology.


  • AI Tools for Researchers: Find Articles, Get Feedback, and Edit Your Texts

    AI is already used for all kinds of tasks, including generating ideas, creating illustrations, and debugging software code. Can AI tools also be used in science? For this article, we asked Alexander Kapitonov, an associate professor at ITMO’s Faculty of Infocommunication Technologies, about AI assistants that can come in handy in research.


  • ITMO Solution Prevents Counterfeiting of Glass Products

    Researchers from ITMO University have suggested a method of creating colored patterns with an affordable, domestically-produced laser. Compared to others, the new method makes it possible to create smaller separate patterns within a single bigger one, which are harder to forge. The technology, described in an article published in Optics and Laser Technology, will help prevent production of counterfeit glass products, such as medical vials and test tubes.  


  • ITMO’s Monday Science Roundup #49

    If you’ve been wondering what scientific advances have been made at ITMO over the past two weeks, wonder no more! From major strides in medical research to identifying game addiction – and an ambitious science art exhibition – here are the key new moments in ITMO’s science life.


  • ITMO’s Advanced Engineering School Passes Project Defence

    On February 15, the Russian capital welcomed teams from universities all over the country. They presented the results achieved by their advanced engineering schools in 2023 and outlined their next steps before a committee from the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education. Based on the results of these presentations, the Ministry will name the country’s best teams and allocate funding for advanced engineering schools of 30 universities for 2024.


  • Scientists in St. Petersburg Find a Way to Study Game Addiction

    Researchers from ITMO University, St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University “LETI”, and Almazov National Medical Research Centre discovered that the brain pathways responsible for self-control, pleasure, and affection change in people who regularly play video games; whereas their cognitive functions remain unchanged, which is visible on functional MRI scans. The study's findings might be used for early diagnosis of game addiction.
