    Novel method for microcirculation diagnosis provided new insights into migraine

    Russian scientists have developed a new optical method for non-invasive diagnosis of blood circulation in capillaries. The method is based on video recording of the skin surface with simultaneous registration of light absorption by red blood cells. Using this method, the scientists found that people suffering from migraine showed some malfunctions in capillary regulation.

    «We found that patients with migraine had quite inadequate response to capsaicin. This can be the evidence for malfunctions in the molecular mechanisms of blood flow regulation. New optics allow us to simultaneously evaluate a large area of the surface. In 30 seconds, we get information about the dynamics of red blood cell distribution in the entire field of view»,  says Alexei Kamshilin from ITMO University.

    Russian scientists have created cereal and cookies for cancer prevention

    Russian scientists propose to deal with malignant diseases without the use of drugs. For this they have created a special porridge, biscuits and muesli bars that you can use for cancer prevention. New products are composed of nutrients such as bio, selenium and lycopene, which are antioxidants and help to reduce the risk of cancer. Development of medical products involved specialists of the University ITMO, and representatives of the SMRC of Oncology named after Petrov of the Ministry of health of the Russian Federation.

    The science of the World Cup: What Russian researchers did for the competition

    The World Cup is a big thing for Russia: everyone from excited kids to old grandmas are staring in astonishment at the bright and noisy crowds of fans from around the world, and they feel they’re a part of it. Top Russian universities and their graduates also got involved in the action. Here are just a few things that participants of Project 5-100 (the Academic Excellence Project) created to benefit the championship.

    To prevent street conflicts, ITMO University modeled a system forecasting the probability of football fan fights during games by tracking fan posts on social media and images from CCTV. The researchers also designed a VR simulator to help manage streams of people.

    To forecast the future streams of fans and their routes to and between cities, the university also created a solution helping to adapt public transportation to the fans’ plans. The system allows working out a route, paying for the trip using a smartphone, detecting fare jumpers, and analyzing the city's passenger traffic.

    Russian Researchers Create Software that Predicts Parkinson’s Symptoms

    A new software can predict with an accuracy of 96 percent the form of Parkinson’s disease and future symptoms that a patient may experience.
    The software was the result of a collaboration between researchers at Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU), the Institute of Experimental Medicine, and ITMO University, in Russia.
    This technology may improve early diagnosis, promote preventive care, and ultimately enhance patients’ overall health.

    Budding computer engineers from Vadodara undergo exchange programme at Russia

    Eight students studying B Tech computer science and engineering programme along with one faculty of city-based Parul University are currently undergoing an exchange program at ITMO University, St. Petersburg, Russia. The program is scheduled to last for a period of six weeks wherein the students are undergoing a study in software engineering and cloud computing.

    "The learning exposure through this programme is something that is of great importance and very vital for the development of the Indian IT industry and even for graduating computer engineers. The students will be conducting their final research project along with their Russian counterparts here at ITMO, making it a more research oriented exchange program," said professor Ankit Chauhan, a computer science faculty at the university, who is currently at ITMO with the exchange students.

    Silicon Nanoparticles Perform Bioimaging and Drug Delivery

    Scientists from ITMO’s Faculty of Physics and Engineering together with colleagues from Germany and Sweden have studied a new cell visualization and drug delivery system based on nanoparticles coated with luminescent dye molecules. Scientists have found out that the particle material and the distance between the dye and the particle’s surface affect the intensity of the luminescent signal. It turned out that silicon nanoparticles coated with dye molecules are more efficient than similar particles made of gold. Thanks to their biocompatibility, silicon particles can be used for cell visualization and drug delivery.
