Researchers' Night 2021 at ICS or Traveling by Protein
The Researchers' Night is coming, this year the main topic is TIME! The traditional scientific-popularization event will be online at MUNI again. On Friday, September 24, from 6 pm, we will publish the videos of university scientists for the first time. Among them is our colleague Petra Němcová, who will present how IT technology saves time in the development and discovery of new drugs.
Traveling by Protein
Understanding the movements of small molecules within large ones helps design better drugs or more effective enzymes in less time. At present, we cannot see these transfers in reality, but the team led by Jiří Filipovič can simulate them on a computer. This saves TIME spent in the laboratory.
In our video for Researchers' Night 2021, you will learn from scientist Petra Němcová how this simulation looks like and that it does not differ so much, for example, from choosing a favorite restaurant in your city.
Watch on Friday, September 24, 2021, from 6 pm on the Researchers' Night website!
Success in the Field of Quantum Cryptography
Researcher Matej Pivoluska from the ICS chose the field of quantum cryptography for his research, where he has currently achieved significant success. Together with his international team, he has succeeded in developing a new quantum cryptography protocol that enables higher data rates and is much more noise-resistant.
Researcher Petra Němcová about the Intertwining of IT with Other Fields
The connection of various fields with informatics is an increasingly visible phenomenon, with a great future ahead of it. A lot about this knows Petra Němcová - originally a chemist now working at a research team at the Institute of Computer Science, where she focuses on modeling transport processes in proteins. In addition, she is currently completing her doctoral studies at the Faculty of Informatics and representing the ICS at the Researchers' Night 2021.
University IT Community Meeting: In-person and with an Informal Program
After more than a year, we organized a physical meeting of the university IT community with a simple goal to share news and changes in our work and meet so-called offline and after a long separation to restore personal relationships. The informal program was also a part of it, which completely denied the conventional stereotype of "unsociable IT guys".
