Experts from Russia and China will evaluate journalism education
Experts from Russia and China will evaluate the educational program of the Higher School of Journalism –Journalism and the New Media. This is the first Russian educational program for journalists to be accredited by international experts. The commission is headed by Liu Chan, from China.   - Today China is one of the leading countries in media education, and at the same time it is a huge market for applicants, many of whom are interested in Russia. Chinese accreditation will be additional evidence that there are people in Russia who can offer a suitable education in journalism, - explained Ilya Myasnikov, dean of the Faculty of Journalism at TSU.   For three days, experts from the National Center for Professional and Public Accreditation (Russia) will work at TSU with specialists from the Higher Education Evaluation Center of the Ministry of Education, P. R. China. The chairman of the commission is Professor Liu Chan, Director of the European Center for Media Studies, Advisor for International Relations at the State Council Information Office of the People's Republic of China.   International experts will evaluate the quality of the Journalism and New Media program, in which students study the theory of journalism, the psychological and legal foundations of media activities, and editorial management. They learn to search, analyze, and visualize information and master digital skills. The program's partner is the TASS news agency, whose journalists conduct seminars and master classes for TSU students.   - We are united by one goal: we want the program to be competitive, to meet all the requirements of the Chinese and Russian sides, and to be very informative,- said Viktor Dyomin, Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs. - We will do everything to provide the necessary materials. Our experts will help you get the most useful and objective information about the program.   Experts from Russia and China will meet with teachers, students, graduates, and practicing journalists; will hold an informational seminar on the export of education; and will visit a television studio, a photo lab, and the printing house of the Higher School of Journalism.   Currently, five TSU educational programs are internationally accredited: International Relations, Finance and Credit, Psychology, Philosophy, and Management. The development of an external independent assessment system is aimed at improving the quality of education and competitiveness of TSU educational programs, taking into account the interests and needs of students and employers. Obtaining a quality mark from leading accreditation agencies guarantees recognition of the quality of education worldwide.

Cream with xenon, created in Tomsk, conquers the international market
Scientists at the TSU Laboratory for Biochemistry of Transport Systems have developed a transdermal method for delivering biologically active substances into the body using xenon, an inert gas. The technology is applied to producing creams, in conjunction with the nanocenter Sygma (Tomsk). Now, one of the first products developed by TSU biochemists, a cream with a whitening effect, has successfully entered the market in Southeast Asia: it is sold in Malaysia and Vietnam, where light skin is considered the standard of beauty.   - Xenon is an inert safe gas that has unique physicochemical properties,-  says Alexander Verkhovskiy, head of the TSU Laboratory for Biochemistry of Transport Systems, director of the small innovative enterprise NONEKS. - It is not toxic, is not subject to biotransformation in the body, and is devoid of side effects. We managed to develop a technology of xenon saturation of liquids, which allows us to use it as an enhancer for delivering biologically active and medicinal substances into the body, thereby improving the properties of ointments, creams, and gels.   The first product using the technology of TSU biochemists was the cream with a whitening effect. A company from the UK, the Eurasia Consortium Ltd (Oxford), helps promote it. A product called “Snowdrop” is already sold in Malaysia and Vietnam, Brazil, and the UK. China, Japan, and Indonesia are also considered as possible markets. In all these countries, the cult of fair skin is widespread, as it is considered a symbol of health, beauty, and high status.   For the Russian market, scientists have developed several special recipes that, depending on the composition, provide the cream with a moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, or rejuvenating effect.   The TSU Department of Innovations in Science and Technology is in talks with several large companies that have shown interest in the line of xenon cosmetics.   Now biochemists are finalizing a new recipe that includes natural components isolated from Siberian wild plants, cedar oil, and fir extract, which have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.   Along with this, the laboratory staff is continuing fundamental research on the properties of xenon. The future results might be used to manufacture a patch in which xenon acts as an enhancer for transdermal delivery and enhancer of the action of drugs to patients with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, and other cognitive disorders.
