Department of Pathological Morphology and Parasitology, University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Science Brno

Two research teams involved to the HPI-lab scientific activities are from University of Veterinary and Pharmaceutical Sciences Brno (UVPS Brno), which is the foremost pedagogical and research facility in CR providing study programmes in the areas of veterinary medicine, veterinary hygiene, ecology, and pharmacy. The first team includes parasitologists and primatologists from the Department of Pathological Morphology and Parasitology, UVPS Brno. In general, the department covers various aspects of parasitic pathogens of wild and domestic animals (diagnostics, alfa/ beta taxonomy, phylogenetics, pathogenicity, epidemiology, treatment). Recently, primatologist Klára Petrželková enforced our lab as a senior researcher as a part of collaboration with Institute of Vertebrate Biology, Academy of Science of the Czech Republic (ASCR).

Department of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology UVPS Brno

The second team involved in the HPI-lab scientific activities is represented by the selected members of the Department of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology, UVPS Brno. Under the scientific supervision of Vladimír Celer (Head of department) and Kristýna Hrazdilová, the team carries out both serological and molecular diagnostics of various viruses using faecal samples of primates living in ZOOs and in the wild. The team devotes their effort to looking for natural infection reservoirs and inferring their potential for zoonotic transmissions.


Institute of Parasitology ASCR

The third scientific group participating on the HPI-lab activities is a team of parasitologists and entomologists from Institute of Parasitology at Biology Centre ASCR. The institute performs research on human and animal parasites at the organismal, cellular and molecular levels. The team carries out the research on the biology and host relationships of parasitic protist and related eucaryotic microorganisms, helminths, and athropods. Specifically, the team members focus on diversity and ecology of protozoan parasites of African great apes, blood feeding arthropods and vector parasite interactions including the detection of insect species involved as a vector in transmission cycles of various pathogens, etc.
