Why science?

I have always been curious about what lies behind various occurrences in nature and what is their fundamental principle. Ever since high school, I have been interested in both Biology and Chemistry, and at university, I realized that I want to nourish my curiosity further and try to figure out new ideas about methods or approaches in the field of bioanalysis.


What do I like most about Brno

What I love about Brno is that the atmosphere of the city centre is incredibly vivid, warm and welcoming. It is nearly impossible to get lost here, and the exceptional hubs and coffee spots are a large bonus. Moreover, since it is a student city, there are endless possibilities to connect to like-minded people and make new acquaintances.
