  • ITMO Researchers Predict Carbon Particle Properties for Cancer Diagnostics

    A group of researchers at ITMO has developed a new machine learning-based approach to producing carbon nanoparticles for biomedicine. Thanks to the algorithm, scientists will be able to select the necessary parameters for synthesis of carbon particles with target properties. In the future, the particles can be used for biovisualization of tumors and their treatment with phototherapy. The new approach is described in a paper published in Small.


  • 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.

  • Minimally Invasive Method for Urethral Catheter Cleaning Suggested at ITMO

    A team of researchers from ITMO, Chelyabinsk State University, and Southern Federal University have suggested a new minimally invasive and safe method for the cleaning of urethral catheters. The new approach involves soft magnetic robots that are nearly 100% effective at removing bacteria-containing biofilm from medical devices. Controlled remotely by a magnetic field, the robots will help prevent the spread of infections, reducing the need for frequent catheter replacement, which is a painful procedure. The new method was described in an article published in ACS Nano.
