Barbora Červená is a PhD. student at Department of Pathological Morphology and Parasitology at UPVS Brno. As a Master student, Barbora carried out a research at Ol Pejeta Conservancy and University of Nairobi in Kenya, where she was focused on parasites of rhinos and elephants. The title of her PhD thesis is "Diversity and host specificity of the nematode Mammomonogamus in free-living and domestic animals."

 

Kristýna Brožová is a Ph.D. student at Department of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology at UVPS Brno. Kristýna is focused especially on the field of virology and molecular biology. Her master thesis was entitled "Diagnostic use of porcine parvovirus structural proteins". The topic of Kristýna´s dissertation work is "Study of potential viral zoonoses in wild living and captive primates". Kristýna is also working on additional topics like porcine circoviruses and recombinant proteins production.

Eva Slaninková is a Ph.D. student at Department of Infectious Diseases and Microbiology at UVPS Brno. Eva is interested in virology for all her studies. Eva´s bachelor thesis was entitled „Viral haemorrhagic fever around the world" and diploma thesis was entitled „Genetic characterization of Porcine circovirus 2 strains in the Czech Republic". Currently, Eva is working on emerging viral diseases common to human and (non-human) primates with main focus to SIV in connection to parasitic and other viral infections. And meanwhile Eva still devote to porcine viral infections.

 

Mwanahamisi Issa Mapua is a PhD student at Department of Pathological Morphology and Parasitology at UPVS Brno. Mwana´s main research of interest is in identification of malaria agents and host specificity in African primates by the aid of molecular techniques. Mwana was directly working on Chimpanzee's project at Rubondo National Park, Tanzania from 2002 - 2006 as research assistant, where was actively involved in ecological data collection, data enty, habituation and coordination of Chimpanzees Project.

Klára Vlčková is a PhD student at Department of Pathological Morphology and Parasitology at UPVS Brno. Klára´s research interest relate with gastrointestinal (GI) microbiome of western lowland gorillas since 2009. In her PhD research, Klára foucs on the deeper characterization of GI microbiome (bacteria and protozoa) of western lowland gorillas with regard to several factors (e.g. impact of human contact, diet, and antibiotic application) using the Next Generation Sequencing approach. The research is performed in the close collaboration with the laboratory of prof. Bryan White at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA.

 

Barbora Kalousová is a PhD student at Department of Pathological Morphology and Parasitology at UPVS Brno. Barbora focuses on transmission of strongylid nematodes between great apes and humans and her study is part of a long-term research program  entitled "Diversity and ecology of parasites and bacteria of western lowland gorillas in Dzanga-Ndoki National Park, Central African Republic with respect to the impact of human pressure". Specifically, Barbora monitores parasite infections of great apes, humans and other wildlife with focus on transmission of pathogens between great apes and humans at several research sites in Africa.

Jana Rádrová Foto

Jana Rádrová is a PhD student at Department of Parasitology at Charles University in Praha. Jana is experienced in the field work with different species of bloodsucking insects, determination of insect, dissection of their gut and salivary glands, isolation and in vitro cultivation of different trypanosomatids from vectors, as well as trained in molecular techniques such as PCR, sequencing or cloning. Jana is working on different insect that can be involved in the transmission of different pathogens to humans and (non‐human) primates and among them. Jana´s research is focused mainly on Anopheles mosquitoes as the vectors of malaria caused by Plasmodium in Dzanga-Sangha national park in Central African Republic.

 

Jade Burgunder is a PhD student at the Department of Botany and Zoology at the Masaryk University. Jade is interested in ecology, evolution, biodiversity, and behavioural ecology. For her master thesis, she has worked on fitness influences of sociality in mandrills, at the Primate Centre of the International Centre for Medical Research Franceville, Gabon. Jade has also worked as a field research assistant in South Africa and participating in some field work for the Primate and Predator Project of Durham University. Her Ph.D. project dealing with analyses of behavioural organization in relation to parasitic diseases and in particular, in relation to gastrointestinal parasite infections in wild chimpanzees.

Doreen Schulz Foto

Doreen Schulz is a PhD student at the Department of Botany and Zoology at the Masaryk University. Her interests lay in behavioural physiology in primates with emphasis on diet and dietary physiology. In her diploma thesis she investigated the influence of energy intake and social behaviour on stress hormone levels in captive bonobos in the Endocrinology lab of the Primatology Department of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropolgy, Leipzig, Germany. She has worked as a field assistant for the Mbeli Bai Study, WCS Congo Program, Republic of Congo. Her Ph.D. project is focused on diversity of anaerobic gut fungi in African great apes and dietary influence on fungi community structure in wild western lowland gorillas.
