LifeB | Laboratory of interaction and function of essential biomolecules

Our Team

Assoc. Prof. Ctirad Hofr, Ph. D.

Principal Investigator

I like to learn which, how, and why biomolecules interact… My research focus is quantitative description of essential functions of biomolecules using quantitative approaches of molecular biophysics.
I have stayed at Rutgers University, Rockefeller University and Colorado University in Boulder, USA, where I collaborated on research with the Nobel prize laureate who has discovered ribozym and about whom I learnt in school :)

Achievements and Awards

  • Scholarship of King Rudolf II
  • Best young investigator of the Institute of Biophysics
  • My students obtained prestigious awards of Masaryk University and Brno Ph.D. Talent

Graduate Student

II like to measure heat of molecule attractions and evaluate shapes of binding curves. In the centre of my interest are DNA interactions with proteins that I can express not only from bacteria but also from insect cells.
I have been to conferences in Bologna (Italy), Brussels (Belgium), Cold Spring Harbor in New York (USA), Marseilles (France).

Achievements and Awards

  • The best and most favourite student of our department for 5 years in raw (if you know the right people)
  • Publication of our results at prestigious scientific conferences and journals papers

M. Sc. Eliška Janoušková

Graduate Student

I like to paint isotherm curves with fluorescent dyes and observe how biomolecules are retarded… in the gel.
I have been to scientific conferences in Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York (USA), Brussels (Belgium) and Brno (Czech Republic).

Achievements and Awards

  • The best student of Faculty of Science
  • Among top five students of international biochemical meeting
  • Results of our research were published in a prestigious scientific journal

I like chemiluminiscence because after using it I can see “good“ results of my all day work…
The most of all, I like our team, which is full of nice people, including me
Major: Biochemistry
I am proud of finishing my bachelor's degree, and so far successfully continuing master studies…

Hi everybody, I just wanna study... Interactions non-specific, my research should be dramatic. If I wanna go to the end, I should be with proteins friend and I come with them hand to hand.
I will be protein's mummy, I promise - my proteins will never be "samy" (in enghlish "alone").

By the way, I'm Claire and I'm always fair ;-)

I am proud of being the Champion of the Czech Republic in dancing.

I'm confused. Why is research called RE-SEARCH? It should be called SEARCH. If it's RE-SEARCH it means it's been done before. So, I am a searcher for telomeric protein interactions :)
