Do You Like a Literature? Try the Creative Challenge to Popularize MU Science
Are you a closet writer or have you always wanted to write something, but never got there? The MUNI Literary Challenge MUNI is an ideal opportunity for any student, employee or graduate of Masaryk University to participate. The topic is science, there are no limits to the form - it can be a story, a fairy tale or even a comic.
The only condition is to keep the range of 1-10 pages. In the future, the stories could be published in books, and the intention is also to present them at the science and popularization events MjUNI and The Researchers' Night. You can send your texts to email@example.com by September 30, 2021.
Researcher Jiří Filipovič received the MUNI Scientist award
Big congratulations to Jiří Filipovič, who received the MUNI Scientist award for his article describing a novel method for the fast analysis of ligand transport. This is awarded by the Grant Agency of Masaryk University for an excellent research results.
Looking Back on the External Meeting: Research and development
In the continuation of a mini-series of articles presenting the activities of individual teams in relation to the strategic plan of ICS, this time we will focus on the area of Research and Development and Doctoral Studies. And one of the goals in this area is also the coordination and continuous development of the principles and strategies of Open Science at MU in accordance with the FAIR principles.
Protein Travel or How We Accelerate Drug Development
In the video, Petra Němcová from Jirka Filipovič's research team reveals how understanding the movements of small molecules within the large ones helps us to design better drugs or more effective enzymes in less time. At present, we cannot see these shifts in reality, but we can simulate them on a computer, which saves scientists time in the laboratory. In a fun way, you will learn what this simulation looks like and that it does not differ so much, for example, from choosing a favorite restaurant in the city.
