Representatives of VSU became laureates of the contest of 2022 for grants of the President of the Russian Federation for support of young Russian scientists with a PhD degree. The grants were awarded to seven scientists with a PhD degree.
For projects in “Physical Sciences” conducted by scientists with a PhD degree, the experts distinguished the investigation by Irina Grevtsova, a lecturer at the Department of Optics and Spectroscopy, “IR luminescent plexitonic nanostructures based on quantum dots of metal sulphides”. Among the laureates were Andrey Zvyagin, an assistant at the Department of Optics and Spectroscopy, with his project “Nonlinear optical properties in nanostructures with plasmon-exciton interactions”; Dmitry Nesterov, assistant at the Department of Nuclear Physics, and his project “Formation of new Me3Si metastable phases in Me-Si-base nanocomposites: their atomic and electron structure and functional properties”; and Alexey Perepelitsa, lecturer at the Department of Optics and Spectroscopy, and his project “Photosensibilisation of reactive oxygen by means of nanoparticles of titanium dioxide decorated with colloid quantum dots”.
Dmitry Vandyshev, Associate Professor at the Department of Organic Chemistry, became a laureate in “Chemical Sciences” with his project “Molecular design, developing methods for synthesis, and studying new fluorescent probes with set spectral-luminescent properties based on azoloazines for the benefit of investigation of the cytoarchitectonics of biofilms”. Additionally, in “Biological Sciences”, the experts supported the application of Evgeny Krylskoy, Associate Professor at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Microbiology, “Analysis of neuroprotective potential of hydro-quinol hydroxyderivatives and their effect on inflammatory, apoptotic, and free-radical processes of the experimental Parkinson’s disease”.
In “Technical Sciences”, the winning project was the project by Ilia Kazbacheev, engineer at the Department of Mathematical Physics and Information Technologies, “Application of vector-scalar antennas to form acoustic holograms of low-noise acoustic sources in natural hydroacoustic waveguides”.
VSU representatives also won the contest of 2022–2024 for the Scholarship of the President of the Russian Federation for young researchers and PhD students. The scholarships in “Energy efficiency and energy conservation, including issues regarding the development of new types of fuel” and “Strategic information technologies, including the issues regarding the development of supercomputers and the development of software” were awarded to Alexri Kruzhilin, researcher at the Department of Organic Chemistry, and Nikolai Lysenko, senior researcher at the Department of Electronics, respectively.
