Lobachevsky University listed in the top 300 of Round University Ranking
Lobachevsky University has significantly improved its standing and is now listed among the top 300 world universities in the Round University Ranking (RUR) in the area of Life Sciences (its current position is 296 and number 5 among Russian universities). In the framework of the 2019 ranking study, the performance of universities was measured by 20 indicators across key university missions: teaching, research, international diversity and financial sustainability. Each university in the ranking receives its unique score with an accuracy of 3 decimal places and a respective position.
According to UNN Acting Rector, Dr. Kirill Markov, this assessment confirms Lobachevsky University’s high status as one of the leaders in the field of research on topical scientific issues. “Lobachevsky University deservedly has a reputation as one of the world’s leading research centers in the field of neuroscience and human sciences, it has been successfully developing breakthrough areas in biomedicine. Our scientists are developing unique antineoplastic drugs and cardiac devices, they have created a neurointerface implemented in the world’s first neuromobile, an exoskeleton, and much more. This was made possible, among other things, thanks to the implementation of the Russian Academic Excellence Project where the UNN is taking part”, said Kirill Markov.
