The International Laboratory of Microphysiological Systems at the 11th World Congress on Alternatives and Uses of Animals in Natural Sciences (WC11)
Alexander G. Tonevitsky, Leading Research Fellow of the International Laboratory of Microphysiological Systems, took part at the 11th World Congress on Alternatives and Use of Animals in Natural Sciences (WC11)
HSE University has announced an open project competition to create experimental research laboratories in the natural sciences. The competition is open to research projects in the fields of biophotonics and ageing (biology, physiology, biomedicine, biostatistics, and bioinformatics.)
HSE University researchers assessed the effectiveness of the T-cell immune response to 11 variants of SARS-CoV-2. Their findings have been published in Nucleic Acids Research.
An international team of researchers including Alexander Tonevitsky, Professor at HSE’s Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology, found that pituitary hormones may produce different effects on the left and right sides of the body following a traumatic brain injury. These differences can accelerate the development of motor disorders. Researchers are trying to determine whether treatment that blocks the corresponding hormones can counteract these effects. The results of the study were published in the journal eLife.
Researchers from HSE University have discovered nucleotide sequences characteristic of microRNA isoforms (microRNAs with errors). The discovery will help predict errors in microRNA behaviour and create drugs that can detect targets (such as viruses) more effectively. The results of the study have been published in the RNA Biology journal.
The member of the International Laboratory of Microphysiological Systems presented his research at the seminar of the Armenian Institute of Bioinformatics
Stepan Nersisyan, Junior Research Fellow of the International Laboratory of Microphysiological Systems, made a presentation at the seminar of the Armenian Institute of Bioinformatics.
The Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI) quality assessment and journal selection working group based on Web of Science has completed its updates to the RSCI list. The group particularly considered journals that submitted 219 initiative applications last year. The updated list includes 87 new journals, with 2 journals having been excluded.
HSE University researchers have identified the genes that play a crucial role in breast cancer metastasis. The results of the study were published in the journal PLOS ONE.
As part of the Mirror Laboratories project, HSE and FEFU researchers hold a laboratory seminar on modern approaches of obtaining new models of intestinal tumors
Scientists from HSE and FEFU conducted joint research on the mechanisms of resistance of tumor cells to therapy.
HSE University researchers have become the first in the world to discover genetic predisposition to severe COVID-19. The results of the study were published in the journal Frontiers in Immunology.
