1. The new composition of the Board of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation was approved. This body was headed by the Minister of Science and Higher Education Valery Falkov, his deputy will be Deputy Minister Pyotr Kucherenko. The Board included representatives of ministries and departments, government bodies, scientific funds and the Russian Academy of Sciences - a total of 30 people.



2. Scientists from NUST MISIS together with colleagues from other institutes have created a new hybrid structure of magnetic nanoparticles - magnetite (Fe3O4) - and humic molecules. The proposed hybrid is biocompatible, its production does not require large expenditures, and in the future it can be used for magnetic diagnostics and high-temperature therapy of oncological diseases.



3. Scientists from the Far Eastern Federal University(FEFU), together with colleagues from Russia, South Korea and Australia, have proposed an innovative method for controlling the spin-electronic properties and functionality of thin-film magnetic nanosystems. The discovery is important for the creation of a new generation of miniature electronics (spin-orbitronics) and ultrafast high-capacity computer memory.



4. Scientists from the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI(NRNU MEPhI) have demonstrated for the first time in the world an increase in the intensity and rate of emission of quantum dots, RIA Novosti reports. According to the authors, their development in the long term can solve one of the key problems in creating a quantum computer and at the same time bring biomedical monitoring to a new level.

Researchers at the Laboratory of Nano-Bioengineering (LNBE) of the Engineering Physics Institute of Biomedicine, NRNU MEPhI, have demonstrated for the first time an increase in both the intensity and the rate of spontaneous emission of semiconductor quantum dots in photonic structures based on porous silicon.



5. Chemists from the Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia have synthesized a new material based on biopolymers of chitosan and alginate isolated from algae and crustacean shells, as well as silver nanoparticles. The material can not only effectively stop bleeding, but also has a pronounced antibacterial activity.
