Job Experience

2019–present

Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine (IKEM) [website]
I work as a general specialist in mathematics and physics in the Laboratory of Experimental Magnetic Resonance.

Education

from October 2022

Heidelberg University [website]
I have been accepted to the Molecular Biosciences programme with a major in Cancer Biology.

2019–2022

University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague (UCT) [website]
I got my bachelor's degree in Biochemistry and Biotechnology with specialization in Biochemistry and Microbiology.

2021–2022

Charles University in Prague (UK) [website]
I studied Computer Science for two semesters. Although I decided to prioritize my studies in Heidelberg, I learned the basics of coding and problem solving in this programme, which I am using in my studies and research.

Research

2021-present

Reactive oxygen species visualisation using MR (IKEM)
– MR spectroscopy
– developing cell culture model of hypoxia in emerging tumors or inflamation
– anti-inflamamatory activity tests
ongoing, first results presented at the "Czech-Austrian Workshop on Magnetic Resonance Imaging nad Spectroscopy" and "European Molecular Imaging Meeting 2022"

2021–2022

Sensitivity of collection cell lines to chemotherapeutics (UCT)
– testing the cytotoxicity of 13 anticancer agents with different mechanisms of action and resistance to frequently used cell lines – as a result, a panel of known IC50\mathrm{IC}_{50} can be used as a comparison to the effect of tested new compounds
bachelor thesis

2021

Langerhans islets labeling with new MR contrast agent (IKEM)
– islets labeling and gelatine phantom preparation
in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo MRI measurements
manuscript published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces [link]

2020-2021

Tumor volumetry measurements (IKEM)
– comparison of methods to determinate efficiency of anticancer agent
– genetic modification of cell line (transposon system)
in vivo MRI measurements
results in revision
