Brno Ph.D. Talent

Alžběta Ressnerová

Advanced materials for cell-specific and precise gene editing

Lector: Dr. Zbyněk Heger

Institution: Brno University of Technology, CEITEC VUT

Field: Advanced Materials and Nanosciences


About the project

Cell specificity in delivery of gene therapy is a major problem that has not been solved to date. The field of nanomedicine has been proved to be efficient in delivery of various therapeutic molecules. In my project I will be using advanced intelligent materials for selective, cell-specific transport of gene editing tools.


Why science?

After finishing my PhD I would like to gain some more experience abroad and then lead a research group in Brno with the focus on gene therapy.


What do I like most about Brno

Brno has a very unique friendly vibe that you won't find anywhere else in the Czech Republic. And that is the reason why I chose to go back to Brno after finishing my studies in Germany
