The rectors of Lodz University of Technology and the Medical University of Lodz have awarded for the third time a joint prize for the best scientific publication. The laureates of this distinction are the authors of the article "Lipid Profile in Children Born Small for Gestational Age", including: Dr. Justyna Zamojska (MUL), Dr. Katarzyna Niewiadomska-Jarosik (MUL), Dr. Beata Kierzkowska (MUL), Dr. Marta Gruca (MUL), Assoc. Prof. Agnieszka Wosiak, Ph.D. (TUL), Prof. Elżbieta Smolewska, Ph.D. (MUL).
On October 2, 2023, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to biochemist Dr. Katalin Karikó and molecular biologist Prof. Drew Weissman for their research on modifying the structure of mRNA, toward increasing its resistance to degradation in the cell and eliminating, observed with injections of unmodified mRNA, state of inflammation in a body.
The use of UV/VIS light enables a non-invasive assessment of the cardiovascular condition. The proposal of scientists from Lodz University of Technology and Jagiellonian University is based on the measurement of fluorescence NADH — FMSF (flow mediated skin fluorescence).
Nanotechnology is the science of very small structures called nanomaterials and nanoparticles and the techniques of their production and research. The size of nanoparticles can be compared to thousandths of the thickness of a human hair.
Scientists seek to develop solutions to make the work of medical doctors easier. For surgeons, it is particularly valuable if they can use robots. To their succor come researchers from Lodz University of Technology, where since 2000, in collaboration with the Foundation for the Development of Cardiac Surgery in Zabrze, a cardiac surgery robot Robin Heart has been under development.
Posed this way, the simplest answer to the question is 'no'. The disease is incurable to a large extent and each year, millions of people die of it. At the same time, 'the war against cancer', which has brought biologists, chemists, physicists and medical doctors together is ever encompassing. In the recent years, mathematicians have joined in their forces.
