  • Schrödinger's Croissant: How ITMO Experts Explain Science With Pastry

    ITMO University, along with the Bushe bakery chain, released a collaborative pop-sci project called Schrödinger's Croissant. This is a limited-edition pastry with a secret filling and a QR code to a set of short clips by the university’s scientists that explain the concepts behind multiverse, teleportation, and other mysteries of the quantum world. ITMO.NEWS caught up with the project’s experts for some rapid fire questions about how they pulled it off and challenged them to explain some complex ideas in plain language.


  • Science and Pastry Combined: ITMO and Bushe Bakeries Launch Joint Pop-Sci Project Schrödinger's Croissant

    Starting today, November 10, customers of the Bushe bakery chain can enjoy a Schrödinger-themed croissant with a secret filling created jointly with ITMO University – and then have complex physics explained to them by the university’s top-notch experts.


  • ITMO Scientists Suggest Efficient Microfluidic Synthesis for Metal-Organic Frameworks

    Nowadays, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are actively studied and used for cleaning and detection purposes, as well as for recording and storage of data. For the most part, they’re synthesized using conventional methods, which require lots of resources. As an alternative, scientists from ITMO’s School of Physics and Engineering suggest a quicker and more efficient method – microfluidic synthesis of metal-organic frameworks using chips. Potentially, it can be used for targeted drug delivery.

  • Future of MRI: ITMO’s Magnetic Resonance Imaging Summer School Attracts 70+ Students, Engineers, Medical Scientists

    In late June, ITMO University’s Faculty of Physics hosted a school in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Over the course of six days, leading specialists from the university and other scientific institutions educated the participants on the fundamentals of MRI, spoke on the latest advances in the field – including the cutting-edge devices developed by the Faculty of Physics – and hosted workshops on the methods of production and processing of magnetic resonance images. The school was organized jointly with the Almazov National Medical Research Center; its staff conducted a tour of the clinic and showed the MRI systems in action.


  • Research & Manage: Who Are Principal Investigators?

    Modern science is becoming more and more like an industry – there’s a constant increase in research pace and competitiveness. That’s why breakthrough discoveries are made by teams, not separate specialists. Leaders of such teams are called principal investigators (PIs). They manage research projects, always know what’s relevant, and are responsible for their teams and the results they achieve. We talked to Alexey Slobozhanyuk, a coordinator of ITMO’s strategic project Scientific Breakthrough, to find out more about this profession.
