Russian Researchers Assess the Power of T-Cell Immune Response to Omicron BA.1 and BA.2

Scholars from HSE University and the RAS Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry have demonstrated the efficiency of T-cell immune response against the Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2. In approximately 90% of vaccinated Europeans, T-cell immunity was as effective against Omicron as with other variants. The results of the study were published in PeerJ.

Members of the International Laboratory of Microphysiological Systems and the Laboratory of Molecular Physiology participated in RECOMB 2021

25th International Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology (RECOMB 2021) was held online on August 29th - September 2nd. Staff of the Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology - Stepan Nersisyan, Alexey Galatenko, Diana Maltseva and Alexander Tonevitsky participated in a poster session with the report «miRGTF-net: Integrative miRNA-gene-TF network analysis reveals key drivers of breast cancer recurrence»

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)

Russian Scientists Investigate the Immune Response to SARS-CoV-2 Variants

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.

Hormones Can Help Brain Recover after Injury

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.

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.

HSE University and Business Russia to Establish Bioeconomy Advisory Board

The decision to establish the Advisory Board was made during a meeting between the Investment Club of Business Russia (‘Delovaya Rossiya’, an all-Russia public organization), and the HSE University Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology, which launched a new Master’s Programme in Bioeconomics last year. The Advisory Board will include leading researchers, entrepreneurs, and investors working in the fields of biotechnology, environmental studies, and sustainable development. Sergey Nedoroslev, Business Russia Co-Chair, and Alexander Tonevitsky, Dean of the Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology at HSE University, will also serve as board members.

Nikita Anisimov Appointed Acting Rector of HSE University

On July 2, Mr Anisimov was introduced to the HSE Academic Council at its meeting at HSE campus in Pokrovka. Valery Falkov, Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, Yaroslav Kuzminov, HSE University Academic Supervisor, and HSE University President Alexander Shokhin took part in the meeting.

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 Reveal Genetic Predisposition to Severe COVID-19

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.

Members of the International Laboratory of Microphysiological Systems and students of the Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology gave an interview to the correspondent of “MIR” TV company on the results of their study of molecules capable to suppress the replication of coronaviruses

Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology researchers in their interview to the correspondent of «MIR» TV company talked about their study on interactions between microRNA molecules and human coronaviruses.

Researchers Find Therapeutic Targets to Fight SARS-CoV-2

Researchers from HSE University have developed new approaches for regulating the expression of ACE2 and TMPRSS2 enzymes, which play a crucial role in cell infection with SARS-CoV-2. The scholars discovered that small non-coding microRNA (miRNA) molecules are capable of performing a targeted decrease in ACE2 and TMPRSS2. The results of the study have been published in PLOS ONE journal.

Joint Seminar of HSE Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology and George Mason University

This June, first-year undergraduate students of the HSE Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology took part in an online seminar at George Mason University (USA). The seminar was part of the Coronavirus Research Update summer course, taught by Professor Ancha Baranova.

HSE and RAS Institutes to Produce Future Generations of Scientists

On February 12 at the Russian Ministry of Education and Science, HSE and five institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) signed agreements to collaborate in the field of scientific education. The institutions have pledged to contribute to the development of new faculties of chemistry as well as biology and biotechnology at HSE.

‘HSE Is in a Class by Itself.’ Annual HSE International Advisory Committee Meeting Commences

New faculties, personnel development, internationalisation, and much more – these are all things on the agenda of the annual International Advisory Committee (IAC) meeting currently taking place in Moscow.

Alexander Tonevitsky Recognized as Distinguished Scientist of Russia
