HSE Researchers Discover Nucleotide Sequence Responsible for Effectively Fighting Pathologies

HSE Researchers Discover Nucleotide Sequence Responsible for Effectively Fighting Pathologies
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.

Make the Most of the Sun

Make the Most of the Sun
Professor Alexey Tameev of HSE MIEM, along with a team of colleagues, has proposed a calculation method to determine the optimal photoactive layer thickness which can maximize the power conversion efficiency of solar cells. Applicable for both polymer andperovskite solar cells, the method can become a milestone on the path from laboratory samples to solar cells made from new generation materials. The results of the research are covered in ‘A common optical approach to thickness optimization in polymer and perovskite solar cells’, an article published in Scientific Reports.

‘Today, Studies Visible to the World, and Not Only to Russia, Are Being Recognized’

‘Today, Studies Visible to the World, and Not Only to Russia, Are Being Recognized’
After its impressive performance in the recent Shanghai Global Ranking, HSE University is now the highest-ranking Russian university in a number of subject rankings, as well as the only Russian university in five subjects, including Education. Isak  Froumin , Head and Professor of the HSE Institute of Education, spoke with the News Service about the factors for HSE’s success.  

Educational Studies Journal Enters Scopus Q1

Educational Studies Journal Enters Scopus Q1
Educational Studies, an academic journal founded by HSE University in 2004, has become the first Russian journal to enter the first quartile in Education in Scopus. This success relies on high requirements and thorough selection of publications, when the editorial board tries to select not just good papers, but particularly innovative studies.

HSE Researcher Named First Winner of British Early Career Researchers Award

Saule Bekova
The British Educational Research Association, BERA, has announced the winners of its Early Career Researchers Award, founded this year to recognize emerging researchers. The new award’s first two winners are Saule Bekova, Research Fellow at theInstitute of Education of the Centre of Sociology of Higher Education, and Binwei Lu of Durham University (UK). In the announcement, the organizing committee praised them as ‘outstanding scholars’ and noted the potential significance of their research for the field of education.

When Risks Are Too High: The International Centre of Decision Choice and Analysis on the Outcomes of Its Work

When Risks Are Too High: The International Centre of Decision Choice and Analysis on the Outcomes of Its Work
In the more than 10 years since it was established, the HSE International Centre of Decision Choice and Analysis has travelled a long way from a laboratory to an academic centre of gravity for globally renowned scholars.Fuad Aleskerov, Professor in the HSE Faculty of Economic Sciences and Director of the HSE International Centre of Decision Choice and Analysis, spoke about the evolution of the centre’s team, its research activity, and solving Arctic dilemmas through the use of mathematical models.

Researchers Develop a Programme to Find Cipher Vulnerabilities

Researchers Develop a Programme to Find Cipher Vulnerabilities
Anastasia Malashina, a doctoral student at HSE University, has proposed a new method to assess vulnerabilities in encryption systems, which is based on a brute-force search of possible options of symbol deciphering. The algorithm was also implemented in a programme, which can be used to find vulnerabilities in ciphers. The results of the study were published in a paper ‘Software development for the study of natural language characteristics’.

Researchers Establish Intracellular Interaction Network in Breast Cancer

Researchers Establish Intracellular Interaction Network in Breast Cancer
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.

Researchers Develop Microscopic Theory of Polymer Gel

Researchers Develop Microscopic Theory of Polymer Gel
Russian scientists have proposed a theory of phase transformation in polymer gels. It explains the mechanisms of the dramatic reduction in volume of zwitterionic hydrogels when they are cooled. The results are published in the journal Chemical Communications (ChemComm).
