1. Innovative membranes for the complete removal of heavy metals from industrial waste water were presented by NUST MISIS scientists together with their Indian colleagues from Jain and Sri Dharmasthala Universities. The special nanostructure of zinc-modified aluminum oxide made it possible to remove arsenic and lead from water with an efficiency of 87% and 98%, respectively.



2. Scientists from the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry and the University of Manchester were able to see that aging leads to astrocyte dystrophy using a set of methods - two-photon microscopy combined with 3D reconstruction. ‘Aged’ astrocytes show a significant decrease in the number and length of processes, as well as disturbances in astrocyte-astrocytic connections.



3. The Skolkovo Foundation and the biopharmaceutical company AstraZeneca with the participation of PJSC Rostelecom and GE Healthcare announce the launch of the iLAB Innovation Laboratory acceleration program for startups working in the field of digital medicine. The Hadassah Moscow Medical Center will act as an expert in assessing the prospects and feasibility of applying the proposed solutions in real medical practice.



4. In the department of general oncology of the Tomsk National Research Medical Center, there is a group that designs and prepares bone prostheses on a 3D printer. The work brought together specialists in the field of computed tomography, surgeons-oncologists, engineers, IT-designers.



5. The CR929 wide-body long-range aircraft is being jointly developed by Russian and Chinese scientists. According to the project, it will accommodate 250-300 passengers. Research takes place at the N.E. Zhukovsky. At the next stage, a basic aerodynamic model with a crescent wing tip was investigated.
