  • ITMO’s Monday Science Roundup #41

    In today’s science digest, we’ve got the latest medical research by experts from ITMO and a top-6 list of the biggest contemporary discoveries in physics. Also: ITMO.NEWS reviews this month’s Nobel Prize laureates in chemistry, physics, and medicine!


  • New Research Brings Personalized Arrhythmia Treatment

    Scientists from ITMO University proposed a new approach to treat atrial fibrillation (arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat) – AI-powered algorithms. Using the innovative method, cardiac surgeons will be able to 3D-print custom cardiac tissues for each patient and thus increase the efficiency of their treatment.


  • Researchers Train AI to Identify Anti-Cancer Nanoparticles

    Chemists at ITMO University have designed an AI-based platform that identifies nanoparticles with selective cytotoxicity to cancer cells. According to the corresponding article in Small, the system should be expected to optimize particle synthesis and reduce the side effects of cancer treatment.


  • Russian-Born Scientist Receives The 2023 Nobel Prize in Chemistry

    Moungi Bawendi, Louis Brus, and Alexei Ekimov won the 2023 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their discovery and study of quantum dots. The awards ceremony was streamed live on the Nobel Assembly’s website on October 4. Below is a primer on quantum dots and their possible applications by ITMO researchers.


  • Nobel Prize in Physics 2023 Awarded to Researchers Who Made the Impossible Possible

    The 2023 Nobel Prize was awarded to Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz, and Anne L'Huillier for producing short pulses of light that make it possible to see inside atoms and molecules. The laureates were announced during a live stream on the Nobel Assembly's website on October 3. ITMO.NEWS asked Dmitry Karlovets, a senior researcher at ITMO’s School of Physics and Engineering, to weigh in on the trio’s experiment and the prospects of their finding.


  • ITMO’s Monday Science Roundup #40

    Fittingly for this “anniversary” installment of our science digest, we have a whole slew of research updates to share: from anti-cancer and computing breakthroughs to a dive into the science of memes.


  • Colombian Scientist Juan Domingo Baena Doello on Wirelessly Charging Medical Implants Using Metamaterials

    Juan Baena, a professor at the National University of Colombia, is leading the research project Wave Processes in Medical Systems at ITMO University. His team is developing a wireless charging system for medical implants, including implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), that will make non-invasive recharging possible. In this article, Prof. Juan Baena shares details about the ongoing project and explains how soccer brought him to science.


  • ITMO Physicists Suggest Method for Mass Production of Metal-Organic Frameworks for Gas Sensors

    The detection of harmful gasses during production is made possible with gas sensors. A promising method of manufacturing these devices involves 2D metal-organic frameworks (2D MOFs). These are special porous hybrid materials with features that make them excellent sensors. Scientists from ITMO University have suggested a new production method that would result in 2D MOFs of record length and thinness – not only in lab conditions, but on industrial scale, too.


  • ITMO’s Monday Science Roundup #39

    It’s been a plentiful couple of weeks for science news here at ITMO.NEWS. Between a promising insight into the mysterious dark matter, exciting AI developments, and a look at the best and most underrated scientists of cinema, there’s something for every reader. Have a look!


  • ITMO Researchers Propose New Production Method for Biosensor Nanoparticles

    Physicists from ITMO’s International Research and Educational Center for Physics of Nanostructures have proposed a method of generating plasmonic chiral nanoparticles with the help of “twisted” laser radiation. The obtained structures can be used in biosensors and polarized photodetectors, detect impurities in gasses and liquids, as well as purify medications.
