Scientists from ITMO University have created a testing device to detect tick-borne encephalitis that can be used to identify the virus at home. The results of this work have been published in ACS Applied Bio Materials.
Researchers from ITMO and University of Toronto Develop Non-Antibiotic Material to Fight Infection and Mend Wounds
In the future, the material could be used in the production of wound dressings that would hold their own even against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. An article on the results of the research was published in Chemistry of Materials.
Top scientists from Canada, Germany, China, and the US have discussed the future of bioprinting with students, who also were able to try 3D printing with their own hands. Learn more in this ITMO.NEWS article.
Research Team from ITMO University, St. Petersburg State University, and Nova Southeastern University Is the First to Sequence the Genome of Moss Animals
Moss animals (Bryozoa) are a source of bryostatin, a promising material to be used in medicine. However, the genome of these species hasn’t been analyzed until now. The research has been published in Scientific Data.
ITMO Scientists Demonstrate Record-Breaking Light Coupling into Optical Fiber at Large Incidence Angles
The invention opens up new opportunities in the field of medicine, including endoscopy and laparoscopy, quantum technologies, and fiber-optic sensors. The concept proposed by the scientists got on the front cover of the October issue of ACS Photonics.
The hackathon is meant to help implement information technologies in the Barents Euro-Arctic region. As part of it, the participants will work on tasks provided by companies from Russia, Finland, Sweden, and Norway. The attendees will be granted the chance to join a digital internship at one of those companies.
The event took place as part of a project that aims to facilitate the development of the Baltic region in four fields: smart city, circular economy, climate change, and aging.
From the first week of October to the first week of November 2020, the second summer school of the LIGHT4HEALTH international project will be held within the framework of the Erasmus + Strategic Partnership grant program. Among the partners and project participants are the world's leading universities and European schools of architecture in the field of architectural light design.
The method allows scientists to get an image close to a holographic one in its properties but with less energy input. In theory, the method could be applied in industrial quality control or acquiring images of concealed objects, for instance, in transillumination of envelopes.
Scientists Suggest Using Gold Nanoparticle Metasurfaces to Determine Substance Molecular Composition
This will make it possible to create compact devices that will accurately determine molecular composition of a liquid or gas, and help identify potentially dangerous chemical compounds. The results of the work carried out by researchers from ITMO University and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel have been published in Nanomaterials.
