Science Café with Vojtěch Adam

When: 02/28/2019
Where: Brussels (Belgium)


Czech Liaison Office for Research, Development and Innovation (CZELO) and its partners are pleased to announce that the thirteenth Science Café, ####an unconventional open discussion with scientist, will take place on 28 February 2019 in the Pilsen House in Brussels.

Our guest will be Vojtěch Adam, a recognized scientist in the field of chemistry and biochemistry and he is an expert in the application of advanced materials in the biology. His research is focused on the protein called metallothionein with ability to bind metals. He and his research team believe that this protein is one of the key factors in preventing the emergence of resistance to cancer treatment with metal-based medicines. Confirmation of this fact could contribute to the more effective treatment of cancer in the future. Prof Adam is vice-rector of the Mendel University in Brno and researcher at the CEITEC Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic. He holds ERC Starting Grant "Towards the Understanding a Metal-Tumour-Metabolismna" since 1 January 2018.

The debate will be followed by a glass of wine. More information here and registration as bellow.

Science Café is jointly organized by the CZELO, Czech Centre Brussels, Representation of the South Moravian Region to the EU, Representation of the Pilsen region in Brussels, Delegation of Prague to the EU and Embassy of the Czech Republic to the Kingdom
of Belgium.
