Lyubov Alekseeva's supervisor is Sergey Sokov, senior lecturer at the Center for Medical Chemistry at Togliatti State University (TSU).
The International Youth Scientific Conference for young scientists is held by Samara National Research University named after academician S.P. Korolev.
The conference has five fields: "Aviation, Rocket and Space equipment", "Robotics and Electronics", "Information Technology", "Natural Sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics)" and "Space for life".
The projects are evaluated by scientists and enterprises' representatives of the rocket-and-space industry.
This year conference participants were high schoolers from Samara, Togliatti, Moscow, Chelyabinsk, Perm, Magnitogorsk, Lipetsk, Bashkortostan, Kaluga Oblast and Rostov Oblast, Krasnodar Krai and other regions. They have presented more than a hundred projects.
Eighth-grader Lyubov Alekseeva from Togliatti was among those participants.
She took part in the field Natural Sciences. Chemistry.
The student's project called Mechanisms of the luminescence, its application in medicine, engineering and physico-chemical analysis won a special award at the conference.
"Lyubov had been working on her project at Togliatti State University, as we have all the conditions for young chemists' projects," told Sergey Sokov, Lyubov Alekseeva's scientific supervisor, senior lecturer Center for Medical Chemistry at TSU. "It must be noted that Lyubov studies only in the eighth grade, but she was able to compete on equal terms with the high schoolers from 10th and 11th grades.
This was another success of Sergey Sokov and Lyubov Alekseeva collaboration.
In the summer of 2021, Lyubov Alekseeva became a finalist at the All-Russian (with international participation) Competition of Scientific Research Works called Ten to the Minus Ninth and got a ticket to the country's best camp, ICC Artek.
