Advances in biomedicine

depend on multidisciplinary approaches, in which knowledge and technology from diverse areas of biology and medicine intersect to inspire new ideas and discoveries. Thus, our aim is to create an environment for high-achieving scientists with several diverse groundbreaking research programmes and build up internationally renowned department. Currently, we are particularly interested in embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cell research, genome instability and DNA repair, bacterial genetics and genomics, and cancer biology.

Our teaching curriculum

is designed to educate and train medical students to become clinicians and researchers who can acquire and assimilate increasing knowledge of human health and disease-related cell biology, molecular biology, and genetics. Our ambition is to develop an innovative and highly dynamic education programme that will be based on the expert knowledge of group leaders and principal scientists of the Department.


in the Masaryk University campus in Brno-Bohunice, the Department of Biology is ideally situated for interactions with Brno's major hospital Faculty Hospital Bohunice and several internationally recognized groups in the neighbouring National Centre for Biomolecular Research and Department of Functional Genomics and Proteomics of the Faculty of Sciences.

Department of Biology provides

state-of-the-art equipment and facilities for stem cell culture, imaging, microarrays, flow cytometry and sequencing.
