Laboratory of Biomedical Technologies, Medical Instrument Engineering, and Acoustic Diagnostics
This laboratory was established as part of a scientific research project supported with a monetary grant awarded by the Government of the Russian Federation under a grant competition designed to provide governmental support to scientific research projects implemented under the supervision of the world's leading scientists at Russian institutions of higher learning (Resolution of the RF Government No.220 of April 9, 2010).
Grant Agreement No.: 11.G34.31.0066
Name of the institution of higher learning:
Federal state budget educational institution of higher professional learning "Nizhniy Novgorod State University named after N. I. Lobachevsky"
Fields of scientific research:
To develop radiophysical foundations for innovative technologies applicable in medicine, material science, and Earth sciences. The project is at the junction between physics (radiophysics, acoustics, laser physics, and microwave physics), geophysics, mechanics, medicine, and unique instrument building.
Key project objectives:
To perform fundamental research in the following areas:
1. Nonlinear ultrasound and acoustic diagnostics.
2. Laser tools for medicine.
3. Microwave appliances for medical applications.
4. Processing of signals and images and computer modeling.
Anticipated scientific outcomes:
1. The project will help create the Laboratory of Biomedical Technologies, Medical Instrument Engineering, and Acoustic Diagnostics (a.k.a. "Medlab") at the Nizhniy Novgorod State University.
2. The project will help construct a building specifically designated for the new laboratory (requisite funds have been provided).
3. The project will help train laboratory staff consisting of undergraduate and graduate students.
4. A number of newly designed devices will be patented.
5. The project will help commercialize its own results by setting up small businesses with participation of Russian and foreign partners.
6. A number of articles will be published in scientific peer review journals.
