New co-authored paper in "Analytical Chemistry"
New paper co-authored by Lucka Knopfova and Jarmila Navratilova was recently published in "Analytical Chemistry".
PhD position available
We are seeking a motivated PhD student for projects-funded position in our laboratory. The candidate is expected to work on the running projects of the lab dealing with Tumor-derived inflammatory factors and anti-tumor immunity in breast cancer metastasis. Please send you application (CV, motivation letter) to Petr Benes, PhD at firstname.lastname@example.org. Position is opened from September 2020.
All the best in 2020
Merry Christmas and all the best for the coming year to all our colleagues and partners.
New papers in "Analytical Chemistry" and "Microscopy and Microanalysis"

Martin Šrámek joined our team as a new postdoc. We wish Martin a lot of joy and success in our lab.
We focus on cancer cells research using techniques of molecular and cellular biology
The laboratory was established in 1994 to investigate principles of cancer cell proliferation, differentiation, cell death and metastasis. As a model we use cancer cell lines of various origin, patient-derived organoids and in vivo mouse models. Using multiple techniques of molecular and cellular biology, we investigate function of specific genes and the role of tumor microenvironment in these processes. We are also interested in testing the tumor suppressing effects of various anti-cancer drugs.
The aim of our work is to perfom the basic experiments in tissue cultures, confirm their results in laboratory mice and to participate in clinical studies to provide benefits to cancer patients.
