Development of scientific team and laboratory for infectious diseases common to humans and (non-human) primates

A new lab called HPI-lab, or "Laboratory for infectious diseases common to humans and (non-human) primates", has been built up at University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Science Brno (UVPS). The lab started on the basis of a three-year grant project "Development of scientific team and laboratory for infectious diseases common to humans and great apes" (reg. no. CZ.1.07/2.3.00/20.0300) funded by the programme "Education for Competitiveness Operational Programme" (ECOP) in the Czech Republic. Our lab consists of three sub-teams which specialize on four biological fields: Parasitology, Virology, Primatology and Entomology. The teams are based at UVPS and Biology Centre of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (BC ASCR) and together form a multidisciplinary scientific workplace opened to new ideas, approaches and with extensive field research experience.

Department of Patology and Parasitology

The main mission of our project is to support the human resources in research and development. The target group consists of scientists at earlier careers, but also graduate and undergraduate students. We cooperate with 15 renowned foreign institutions in order to ensure highly-effective training enhancing scientific excellence, professional skills and scientific competitiveness of our lab members. Additionally, we regularly organize international workshops to offer a platform for exchanging ideas, fruitful discussions but also to provide our students with opportunity to improve their presentation and communication skills.
