A scientist from our faculty has received a scholarship to the University of Zurich
The Experientia Foundation has awarded a scholarship of CZK 1,260,000 to Dr. Lenka Štacková, thanks to which she will spend a year at the University of Zurich in the group of Prof. Jurička. Fifteen excellent young scientists under the age of 35 in the fields of organic, bioorganic or medicinal chemistry have now been given the chance to travel for a one-year internship at a top foreign research institute, thanks to the foundation's support.
"I will focus on the development of new materials that, thanks to their conductivity and magnetic properties, could potentially be used in the electronics of the future", said the award-winning scientist.
Dr. Štacková works at our faculty in the laboratory of organic photochemistry, which focuses on the development and photophysical study of new photochemically active compounds and fluorophores, with an emphasis on the use of photochemistry in solving interdisciplinary problems in chemistry, biology, physics and environmental sciences.
"We are very happy with the winning projects and we are already looking forward to the results of our new young scientists", said the founders of the Experientia Foundation, Mr. and Mrs. Dvořák. For the eighth year in a row, they have been devoting their own funds from license fees for antiviral substances developed at the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (IOCB AS CR) back to the science community they came from. The Experientia Foundation has so far set aside a total of 26 million crowns to support young scientists.

Congratulations on your success!
"We are testing how our modification of nanofibre filters will withstand industrial use," says David Pavliňák
Our experts have devised a technique that facilitates the production of nanofibre mask filters. Now, with the help of a grant from the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (TAČR), they are verifying how the plasma-treated surface of the filter handles temperature fluctuations, storage and other "pitfalls" of commercial production.

October 19, 2020: we celebrate 100 years since the first lecture at the faculty
100 years of education, of research and development. From 9 students in the first year of teaching to 3040 students today. From the provisory solution to the modern complex on Kotlářská and the Bohunice campus. Let us celebrate it :-).
