current results of the space experiment by scientists from OSU named after I. S. Turgenev are published on federal media resources


The LASMA space experiment has been conducted aboard the Russian segment of the International Space Station (ISS) since December 2021 (it will continue until 2025). Orel State University acts as one of the co-producers of this targeted work on board the ISS.

The experiment is devoted to the study of blood microcirculation and fluorescence of biotissues in microgravity conditions. The current results were published in the journal Aerospace and Environmental Medicine. The scientists' study was also published in TASS.

The paper presents for the first time the results of the study of blood microcirculation in weightlessness conditions, obtained using portable laser analyzers "LAZMA-PF" with the participation of pilot-cosmonaut, hero of Russia Alexander Misurkin and space tourists Yusaku Maezawa and Yozo Hirano during the expedition visit EP-20.

During the first 2-3 days in weightlessness, the astronaut experienced redistribution of blood to the upper part of the body, after which the mechanisms of blood flow regulation were activated, and on the 6th day of flight the blood microcirculation system returned to normal. In the second cosmonaut (space tourist), who used special leg bands, which do not allow the fluid to leave the lower part of the body, such an effect was not observed, and in the first few days of flight, the work of the endothelial layer of blood vessels was activated.

In general, in the process of reorganization of the blood microcirculation system under microgravity conditions, the most pronounced changes in the parameters occurred in the temporal region of the head and in the region of the lower extremities on the 2nd and 3rd days of flight and were characterized by a significant decrease in tissue perfusion, increased vascular tone with a gradual recovery of preflight values by the 6th day of space flight (SF).

Thus, for the first time a method of registration of blood microcirculation parameters and oxidative metabolism in weightlessness using portable analyzers was developed and successfully tested. Thus, our scientists managed to send on board the international space station the newest domestic devices "LAZMA PF" for recording the functional state of peripheral vessels and tissue metabolism, where with their help cosmonauts assess the adaptation of the organism to the conditions of space flight, conducting measurements on the skin of temples, hands and feet.

Currently, the experiment on board the ISS continues with participants of the 70th long-term expedition - Roscosmos cosmonauts Oleg Kononenko, Nikolai Chub and Alexander Grebenkin.

Days of OSU named after I. S. Turgenev at the International RUSSIA EXPO


On January 24-25, Orel State University named after I. S. Turgenev presents its exposition in the pavilion of  Orel region at the International RUSSIA EXPO as part of the “Decade of Education and Science”. University teachers and students prepared many interesting and educational activities for visitors of the exhibition.
Anyone can test their knowledge in the field of financial literacy using a quest in the “YourFinGuide” mobile application, developed as part of the strategic project “Orel is a Literary Capital”.
“Our application does not collect any personal data and at the same time makes it possible to complete quests and quizzes in an interactive format - linked to geotags and geoposition,” said Irina Maslova, Acting Director of the Institute of Economics and Management, Deputy General Director of the Association for the Development of Financial Literacy.

This location turned out to be popular among different generations of people. Especially for older guests of the exhibition, for whom it is very important to improve their knowledge in the field of financial literacy and security, so as not to fall for scammers in the future.
Another useful part of the University exhibition was the “Professional Kaleidoscope”, thanks to which visitors get acquainted with medical professions and first aid skills using simulators. It is represented by OSU Medical Institute, headed by director Irina Snimshchikova, responsible for educational and career guidance work, Liliya Koroleva and students.
“We talk about our most interesting simulators so that young visitors can try themselves in the role of future doctors: perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation, help a person if he is choking, and also show how dentists actually work so that they are not afraid of them. And, of course, we teach first aid for common injuries and abrasions,” shared Polina Potselueva, a student of the Medical Institute.


The University demonstrates the cultural wealth of Orel region at the master classes “Making a souvenir based on the patterns of the Orel Spis embroidery" and “ “Bird” and “Bunny on the finger” folk finger puppets. Visitors paint blank souvenirs and make dolls from templates.
“At our table, with the help of the Institute of Pedagogy and Psychology student, Margarita Korobetskaya, guests are making a talisman - a textile bell doll from blanks that we made in advance. At the same time, adults rejoice like children and hang it around their necks.
In addition, here you can get acquainted with the literary heritage of Orel region - make postcards with your own hands, placing on them small portraits of Orel writers and their quotes (which still need to be correctly correlated). You can also decorate the postcard with symbols of Orel region, for example, a picture with Orel Spis embroidery. Guests can decorate keychains with the same pattern as a souvenir,” said Elena Alekseenko, Associate Professor of the Department of Theory and Methodology of Primary General Education at the Institute of Pedagogy and Psychology.

When talking about the University, one cannot fail to mention its scientific activities. Young and adult guests of the exhibition can get closer to serious science and advanced technologies at the “Nano is Nearby” master class, conducted by the head of the Department of Chemistry, Evgeniy Gribanov.
Visitors will get acquainted with high-tech equipment and will be able to observe the peculiarities of the organization of the surface of materials at the nanolevel.
“Online we can observe the study of the surface of gold as one of the materials. We see the structural elements of the surface, their characteristic dimensions, etc. This is necessary to conduct targeted synthesis of materials,” noted Evgeniy Gribanov.

Let us recall that on the basis of a scanning probe microscope, which is part of the presented complex, the “Nanoprobe” was created and launched into low-Earth orbit - a satellite that online allows you to study the influence of high-energy cosmic dust, for example, on the skin of spaceships. There, at the exhibition, using a special website, it was possible to see the current location of the satellite.
Those who enjoy reading can learn to write an amateur essay based on popular original literary works on a given topic thanks to a master class “How to write fan fiction ” by a senior teacher of the Department of History of Russian Literature of the 11th-19th centuries at OSU named after I.S.

One of the good traditions of the Law Institute in recent years has been the involvement of international students in the daily life of our country through good, well-established traditions. One of these holidays was the Russian Pancake Day(Maslenitsa). It is a holiday of both Russian tradition, analogies of which are found in almost all nations whose lives are connected with the arrival of spring, and all the charm that lives in the festive Russian national clothes.


Students of the Law Institute of OSU named after I.S. Turgenev selebrated with traditional pancakes, jam, bagels and other symbols of both Russian cuisine and a traditional student feast. There were pancakes from several housewives, and, as they say, from a domestic manufacturer. It is both possible and necessary to understand another country through what and how they eat here.

It is no secret that another country, in which you have not just to live for several years, but also to study in another language, does not immediately become familiar. In order to smooth the difficulties of cultural exchange and understanding the culture of the new country, OSU Theory and History of State and Law Department constantly helps foreign students studying international and comparative law at Law Institute to feel closer to what is called the Russian culture.

New in this year's carnival was the fact that undergraduates of the Theory and History of State and Law Department, studying in the profile "Historical and Legal Education", within the framework of pedagogical practice, took the most lively, and bilingual participation in this event, carrying both the word and the music of the great Russian classical composers to the student audience.

During the meeting, the Rector emphasized the importance of cooperation with the states of the African continent in the educational and scientific sphere, spoke about the students from various African states studying at the University, and outlined potential ways of interaction. He also noted the prospects of teaching students from Uganda, since this state is the leader in terms of the share of the young population in the age structure of the country's population as a whole, and as Orel State University can offer a large number of different basic and additional educational programs that can provide training in any profession.

Svetlana Aronova, Director of OSU International Relations Department, spoke more specifically about the University's opportunities in the field of training and admission.
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Moseso Kawaaluuko Kizige expressed sincere interest not only in educational, but also in scientific cooperation, picturesquely described the possibilities of his country and its needs in the field of interaction.

In the last round of the Student Hockey League hockey players of Orel State University named after I.S. Turgenev hosted Kazan "Krylatye Bars". Home games with Tambov "Derzhava" already made the newcomers to the elite of student hockey look at the team in a new way. The players of Orel team are gradually getting used to the new tournament, getting hard knocks and starting to believe in themselves. The games with the Bars only confirmed that.
The home team didn't give their opponents or fans the slightest chance to think they might lose. At some points, they still lacked chemistry, but they more than made up for those deficiencies with individual skill and the home court factor. Orel fans saw bright hockey in person at home, and it will be the matches of the last tour that will draw more attention to the team of Orel State University.

Both games pleased the fans with a large number of goals scored and two beautiful victories of the Orel team: 5:3 and 8:5.
Samvel Davtyan, captain of the I.S. Turgenev OGU team: "The valuable thing about this victory is that we defeated a strong opponent. The guys are the winners of the Student Hockey League. These victories are a big success for us. I hope that's just the beginning. These matches confirmed that we are gradually becoming a team. We're getting to know each other from the game point of view and we're improving our tactics. I don't think we're thinking about the playoffs yet - there are still too many games to play. We must give our best in every game. Playing against tough opponents like we did in our group is a big opportunity for each player to grow. And that growth is sure to pay off. More precisely, it has already begun."

Adel Galiullin, player of HC "Krylatye Bars" (Kazan): "After home games there was some self-confidence. Maybe we underestimated our opponent somewhere. But excuses are the lot of the weak. We have what we have. I have to give credit to our opponent; their mood was very different from how it was in Kazan. We saw a completely different team here. They had a great commitment. Last week, when the Orel hockey team played with Tambov and put up a very good fight, you could see that the team is getting used to it. The foundations were being laid. They had to take a shot. And they did."

 Gennady Skiba, the coach of Orel State University team: "The meeting with Kazan hockey players in the first round ended unsuccessfully for us - we lost both games with a large score. There were many reasons for that, we were brought down by injuries and illnesses. I admit that we were expecting a hard fought game in this round. In the last round, in games against Tambov Derzhava, we showed an equal game. And there was hope for the development of success. And everything has turned out".




On January 10, 2023, the traditional annual Scientific and Practical Conference of schoolchildren "Biological sciences through the eyes of young researchers" was held at the Institute of Natural Sciences and Biotechnology of Orel State University. The organizer and ideological inspirer of the Conference is Associate Professor of the Department of Botany, Physiology and Biochemistry of Plants, Ph.D. Tatyana Tsutsupa.
The online Conference was attended by students of grades 5-11 of secondary schools and gymnasiums, as well as institutions of additional education in the city of Orel and Orel region. The format of the Conference was not chosen by chance. Weather conditions and the epidemiological situation do not always allow young participants to get to the venue of the event from remote areas of the region.

The meeting of young researchers was opened with a welcoming speech by Angela Tyapkina, director of the Institute of Natural Sciences and Biotechnology. Natalia Kondykova, the Institute Career Guidance Coordinator, spoke about the specifics of the areas of study and the specifics of the admissions campaign in 2023. This information has undoubtedly become important for students in grades 10-11 and will help them in choosing directions for their future studies at the University.
Eight sections were organized in the work of the Scientific and Practical Conference: "Applied Ecology", "Bioecology", "Biotechnology", "History of the development of natural science", "Diversity, protection and rational use of animals", "Botany", "Physiology, biochemistry of plants and biophysics", "Anatomy and physiology of man". The reports of the participants caused a heated discussion of the jury members and many questions, since each work revealed the topics that are relevant today.
In particular, the speech of Mikhail Kolesnikov (Grade 11, MBOU-Secondary School No. 6, Orel) revealed the seriousness of self-harm - an urgent problem for modern teenagers. The report demonstrated the personal example of the author in solving the pressing issue of helping teenagers get rid of the obsessive idea of inflicting bodily harm on themselves.

An interesting report was made by Denis Chirkov (grade 7, MBOU-school No. 51 of Orel), in which he demonstrated practical work on making shampoo from natural products, which allows you to maintain healthy hair and scalp.

The work of Alina Korotkova and Anton Pervykh (10th grade, Educational Institution of Orel Region "Constellation of Orel") attracted special attention. The children managed to screen nitrogen-fixing bacteria for their ability to stimulate plant growth. The data obtained are undoubtedly of interest to scientists-microbiologists, plant breeders and biotechnologists.

The works and reports of the participants of the Conference were evaluated by the members of the jury - leading teachers of the Institute of Natural Sciences and Biotechnology, who have scientific degrees of candidates and doctors of sciences.
According to the results of the Conference, the jury determined the winners and prize-winners, who were given diplomas of appropriate categories. The work of supervisors and mentors of the Conference participants was noted by letters of gratitude.
