(Kazan Federal University) New electronic management systems provide educational support, help establish effective monitoring of students' achievements both online and offline, can receive and analyze reports on student performance, and track academic progress. Show More Summary
(Kazan Federal University) During the last several months, the Lab has managed to conduct tests of oxidation of SARA fractions (saturates, aromatics, resins, and asphaltenes). Differential scanning calorimetry, adiabatic calorimetry, and thermogravimetric analysis coupled with Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy have been among the used methods.
(Kazan Federal University) The nearest interstellar clouds with confirmed fullerene presence are about 1,000 light years away from Earth. Electromagnetic spectra of 19 distant stars were provided by the VLT telescope in Chile, one of the largest in the world. The authors found fullerenes which left traces -- absorption lines in certain frequencies.
(Kazan Federal University) The extraction of high-viscosity oils is complicated by the fact that they occur in hardly permeable reservoirs such as shales, strong sands, or limestones. Using thermal methods is not enough to extract oil, so modifications are needed.
Conference: 18 Jun 2018 - 23 Jun 2018, Yakutsk, Russian Federation. Organized by M.K. Ammosov North-Eastern Federal University Kazan (Privolzhsky) Federal University A.V. Rzhanov Institute of Semiconductor Physics SB RAS.
(Kazan Federal University) The paper, titled "Collocated ionosonde and dense GPS/GLONASS network measurements of midlatitude MSTIDs", covers the first ever complex analysis of MSTIDs obtained by two methods of radio sounding. MSTIDs, which are huge wave perturbations somewhat resembling aurora borealis, are invisible in midlatitude areas.
(Kazan Federal University) Several teams of SAU EcoOil won Russian Science Foundation grants. One of them was the High-Performance Distributed Systems Lab which presented its project 'Mathematical modelling of multiphase multicomponent non-isothermal filtration in deformable porous medium'.
(Kazan Federal University) The revived Lobachevsky Medal and Prize, awarded by Kazan Federal University for outstanding contributions to geometry and its applications, was given to Richard Schoen (University of California, Irvine) in 2017.
(Kazan Federal University) Blazars are high-energy objects emitting relativistic jets which are perpendicular to their accretion disks. The latter supposedly have supermassive black holes in their centers. Blazars' jets are angularly oriented towards Earth. Blazars are characterized by rapid and noticeable changes in brightness in all frequencies.
(Kazan Federal University) Megagrant, a special funding initiative by the Russian government, is a program aiming to provide assistance to especially funding-heavy research projects.
(Kazan Federal University) The project, titled 'Geography from Space', is a joint effort by leading researchers from several institutions. It is an open photo database aimed at middle school teachers and university academics.
(Kazan Federal University) Kazan Federal University reached agreements with PetroChina and Sinopec to implement some of its technologies at oil deposits, including in-situ refining. The works are planned at Karamay and Tahuo oilfiel...
(Kazan Federal University) Plans to construct a proprietary tube were first announced in autumn 2016. The task was not of the easy sort, and the works were more or less completed only this summer. Now KFU has a great piece of equipment which expands possibilities for new research in petroleum extraction enhancement.
(Pensoft Publishers) A joint study conducted by scientists at the National Academy of Sciences in Belarus and Kazan Federal University in Russia, looks at the role of nitric oxide (NO) in brain tissue in simulated ischemia in rats. The study seeks to cast light on NO as a signalling molecule in a modeled ischemic and hemorrhagic insult.
(Kazan Federal University) The Cyclone ionosonde (creatied by Dr. Akchurin, Head of the Near Space Studies Lab of SAU AstroChallenge) can detect earthquakes at distances as big as 15,000 kilometers. The paper also states that earthquake signatures for mid-latitude KFU ionosonde can be up to 3 times more prominent than on a low-latitude ionosonde in Japan.
(University of Nottingham) Injecting DNA into injured horse tendons and ligaments can cure lameness, new research involving scientists at Kazan Federal University, Moscow State Academy and The University of Nottingham has found.
(Kazan Federal University) This GIS is based on a vector map of basins of small rivers. The map covers almost all of European Russia - 4 million square kilometers with about 50 thousand river basins. The project was financed by a grant of the Russian Science Foundation and took 3 years of work by 10 employees.
(Kazan Federal University) The work is a part of FANTOM and was funded by a Russian-Japanese grant provided by the Russian Science Foundation. The results were published in PLOS Biology. The third institution involved was Kumamoto University.
(Kazan Federal University) The coherent amplification of a localized optical signal within a planar titanium nitride nanoantenna has been achieved by scientists of Kazan Federal University (under the leadership of Sergey Kharintsev) and physicists from Harvard University, Nazarbayev University, and Imperial College London.

(Kazan Federal University) The results can be used to understand the nature of neurodegenerative diseases characterized by dementia.Inhibition in neuronal networks is an important part of brain functioning. The main role in these processes is played by interneurons which use gamma-aminobutyric acid as a neurotransmitter.
