Infochemistry Scientific Center’s key research areas

  • Development of artificial chemical cells
  • Chemical computing
  • Multisensor systems and statistical processing of large data arrays
  • New materials for regenerative medicine
  • Nanostructuring of metals
  • Quantum and chemical calculations of complex systems
  • Functional nutrition, personalized tracking
  • Bioelementology and medical elementology
  • Digital transformation in chemical and biological technology
  • Alternative approaches to data storage.

The center’s staff, students, and young scientists have free access to high-tech equipment which lets them work on projects of their own and publish their research in such recognized international journals as Nature, Science, Advanced Materials, Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., J. Am. Chem. Soc., and others. Nature, Science, Advanced Materials, Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., J. Am. Chem. Soc. The center actively collaborates with industrial partners from various fields. Such an approach helps us launch startups and opens up possibilities for bringing products developed at the center to the Russian and international markets.

The center is home to joint labs:

  • ● International Research Center of Artificial Intelligence for Smart and Functional Materials, launched with the involvement of of Prof. Daria Andreeva-Baeumler and Prof. Konstantin Novoselov, a laureate of the Nobel Prize in Physics
  • A joint lab of the University of Liverpool’s Laboratory of Active Materials and Interfaces (Prof. Dmitry Shchukin) ) and ITMO University’s Infochemistry Scientific Center (Prof. Ekaterina Skorb).

International partners

The Infochemistry Scientific Center actively collaborates with leading international research laboratories. Its students have the opportunity to complete internships with research teams led by Prof. George Whitesides (Harvard University, USA), Prof. Sergey Semenov (Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel), participate in joint projects with the Department of Biological Materials Science of the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (Potsdam, Germany). Master’s and PhD students of the center regularly visit EU countries (Germany, Croatia, Belgium, Spain, etc.) as part of the Erasmus+ program, which covers all expenses (travel, accommodation) and provides an opportunity to work at advanced international laboratories. Students can also opt for an internship at the National University of Singapore under the supervision of Prof. Konstantin Novoselov (a laureate of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics) and Prof. Daria Andreeva-Baeumler. Collaborating with international partners allows our young scientists to learn to conduct high-level research anywhere in the world and participate in interdisciplinary international projects.
