Criteria for application

  • graduation from a medical faculty (University)
  • previous research experience

Research workplaces, possible research areas and supervisors

Dept. of Pulmonary Diseases and Tuberculosis, Faculty Hospital, Brno - Pneumooncology

  • The field of Pneumooncology involves a broad range of age categories (from adolescents to old people). The wide spectrum of pulmonary malignancies can affect all age categories. Applicants are asked to elaborate their individual study plans based on recommendation of their supervisors. The approval of the scientific committee is mandatory.
  • Possible research areas in Pneumooncology:
  • Targeted treatment of non-small cell lung cancer
  • The timing of interventional bronchoscopic therapeutic procedures in patients with endobronchial obstruction due to pulmonary malignancies
  • Nutrition in patients with bronchogenic carcinoma

Supervisors:
Jana Skřičková, M.D., Ph.D., Professor (jskric@fnbrno.cz)

University Research Centre – Czech Myeloma Group
and Department of Internal Medicine - Haematooncology, Faculty Hospital, Brno

Supervisor: Roman Hájek, M.D., Ph.D., Professor
e-mail address: r.hajek@fnbrno.cz

The University Research Centre - Czech Myeloma Group (URC-CMG), operating under the Faculty of Medicine at Masaryk University in Brno, is engaged in the research of monoclonal gammopathies, and particularly of the second most frequent blood cancer disease called multiple myeloma. The URC-CMG is closely connected with the activities of the Czech Myeloma Group, which organises research and clinical activities in the field of monoclonal gammopathies in Central Europe.

Research areas:

  • Proteomics in multiple myeloma
  • Optimisation of cellular vaccines against multiple myeloma
  • Genomic and proteomic differences between benign and malignant monoclonal gammopathies
  • Prognostic and predictive models in the treatment of multiple myeloma with the use of genomic data and gene polymorphisms
  • Selection and characterisation of clonal and physiological plasmocytes
  • Optimisation of clinical and preclinical research in multiple myeloma model
  • Angiogenesis in multiple myeloma

Centre of Molecular Biology and Gene Therapy, Department of Internal Medicine – Haematooncology, Faculty of Medicine, MU, and Faculty Hospital, Brno

  • Research areas for PhD studies in Haematooncology:
  • Molecular diagnostics of lymphoproliferative diseases
  • Molecular basis of lymphoproliferative disease development
  • Induction of apoptosis in leukaemic cells harbouring the TP53 and ATM abnormalities using gene transfer technology
  • Genetic changes in leukaemic and lymphoma cells during disease progression and their impact on modern therapy

Supervisor: Šárka Pospíšilová, Ph.D. (sarka.pospisilova@fnbrno.cz)
Supervisor: Martin Trbušek, Ph.D. (mtrbusek@fnbrno.cz)
