Great success of our undergraduate students in SVK Student Scientific Competition again! 6 places in this years’ chemical engineering experimental section go to members of the Chobotix group: Peter Ševčenko, Juraj Petrík and Matěj Novák bring home bronze from their respective sections, Martin Kalný takes silver and Denisa Lizoňová and Viktorie Čermochová have won her section. Excellent job, everyone!

František Štěpánek has been awarded the 2013 Neuron Grant in the field of medicine. Congratulations, Ferry!
The annual Neuron awards were established by Nadační fond Neuron (earlier Nadační fond Karla Janečka) in 2010. The aim of this endowment fund is to support research in the fields of mathematics, economics, physics and medicine. The funds targets young scientists working in the Czech Republic and successful Czech scientists who decide to return from abroad. Grants are awarded on the basis of the scientific quality of the project and the scientist’s ability to support his or her expertise through publications in internationally respected journals.
The specific project awarded to our group aims to use chemical robots for the targeted delivery of antibiotics with a short half-life (one example being a compound called allicin, derived from common garlic) in order to avoid conditions that lead to the development of antibiotic resistance.
