Proposing a new drug to treat tuberculosis utilizing state-of-the-art computer simulations

Research team lead by Toyohashi University of Technology have proposed a new drug to treat tuberculosis. This drug may inhibit the cell division of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) and suppress its growth. In addition, because this drug acts on the enzymes secreted by M. tuberculosis, M. tuberculosis has very little chance of mutation and develops no drug resistance. Therefore, it's expected this drug will lead to a novel drug that will keep its effectiveness.




ISAAA Brief 55 – Global Status of Commercialized Biotech/GM Crops for 2019

ISAAA Brief 55 – Biotech Crops Drive Socio-Economic Development and Sustainable Environment in the New Frontier
Socio-economic benefits of biotech crops have been documented in the last 23 years (1996-2018) showing that biotech crops have contributed to:
∙ increasing productivity that contributes to global food, feed, and fiber security;
∙ supporting self-sufficiency on a nation’s arable land;
∙ conserving biodiversity, precluding deforestation and protecting biodiversity sanctuaries;
∙ mitigating the challenges associated with climate change; and
∙ improving economic, health, and social benefits.

Dr. Alla Yemets, professor, corresponding member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukaine, Head of the Department of Cell Biology and Biotechnology of the Institute of Food Biotechnology and Genomics of the NAS of Ukraine was awarded the title of Honored Worker of Science and Technology.








Opening of the XIII All-Ukrainian Science Festival on May 16, 2019 at the Ye.O. Paton Electric Welding Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine


At the exhibition of the Festival the developmets of the Institute of Food Biotechnology and Genomics, NAS of Ukraine, were presented: "Technologies for the production of liquid biofuels from renewable raw materials" and "Preparation of low-fat lecithin and essential phospholipids of sunflower".





On May 16, 2019 the finale of Intellectual Property Marathon took place in the framework of the All-Ukrainian Innovation Festival

uchastnikiThe Marathon was organized by the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine and the State organization "National Office of Intellectual Property" with the support of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and the Ukrainian Institute of Scientific and Technical Expertise and Information.

Participants of the IP-Marathon competition elaborated commercialization projects for the developments on the basis of intellectual property objects.
The projects were presented in the form of a "pitch" - a presentation of up to 300 seconds that reveals the essence of the business idea, its features and attractiveness for investors. Preparations for participation in the IP-Marathon took place within the Training on Intellectual Property, Technology Transfer and Innovation Management, and the best developments of the participants were worked out together with experienced mentors.

Tetiana Ivanova represented the development of the Institute of Food Biotechnology and Genomics of the NAS of Ukraine: "Utilization of Bread and Alcohol Wastes by Cultivation of Medicinal Mushrooms", received a Certificate of the IP-Marathon participant and a Certificate to winner in the competition of innovative start-up projects by Igor Kyrylchuk, the National UNIDO / GEF "Global CleanTech Innovation Program for Small and Medium Enterprises in Ukraine" Project Coordinator.
