2. Scientists from the E.N. Mesahlkin National Medical Research Center and the Institute of Chemical Biology and Basic Medicine of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences have developed a vascular stent coating for effective drug delivery. Scientists explain that when using the new technology, blood flow increases by only about 1.3 times over three months, then stabilizes, and the rate of drug release decreases, reducing the risk of overdose.

3. Scientists at the National University of Science and Technology (MISiS) develop a new material for mechanical engineering with silicon carbide ceramic made of crystal and quartz sand. Copper material can easily replace alloys containing cobalt, nickel, and chromium, and can increase engine power and efficiency when used in manufacturing internal combustion engine parts for equipment such as automobiles and aircraft.
