LifeB | Laboratory of interaction and function of essential biomolecules

How can we make

cells younger?

Our basic research is focused on quantitative description of interaction of essential molecules. Our objectives are slower cell aging, improved regeneration, and effective cancer defeat.

We made colors talk
We organized a workshop Talking colors: Advanced Microscopy. The most sophisticated microscopy methods of biomolecular interaction and structure analyses were introduced to young researchers and students in the former home of the father of genetics Johan Gregor Mendel – Mendel Museum.
Michael Stone from the University of California Santa Cruz presented basics and applications of single molecule FRET microscopy.
Mark Hink from the University of Amsterdam taught us how to perform fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy. Fifteen mainly PhD students from CEITEC learned principles and expanded their practical skills in advanced methods of microscopy. The workshop was among main news from CEITEC in October 2017.
