Moscow?s MISiS Research University of Technology is setting up Russia?s first Hybrid Nanostructured Materials Laboratory, Rusnanonet.ru reports. The effort has been made possible through the Russian Government?s financial support known as ?megagrant.? This new megagrant reportedly amounts to $2.9m. The new MISiS scientific center is expected to focus on making Russia an international leader in hybrid materials development, a new and rapidly advancing market segment which is said to offer customers material properties that result from chemical and physical synergies and cannot be obtained from the separate elements of a hybrid. Hybrid nanostructures can be used in a wide range of high-tech sectors, including medicine (e. g., in medical implants that possess increased biocompatibility, allowing much faster accommodation in the human body compared to existing implants), auto-making, aerospace industry, construction, sports utilities, and many others...
