zora.novakova@ibt.cas.cz
Zora graduated in biology at the Charles University, Prague. She got her PhD in cell biology with the focus on cellular senescence. In January 2013 she has joined the lab of Dr. Cyril Barinka at Institute of Biotechnology of Academy of Sciences. As postdoc she works on projects aimed at structure-function studies  of HDAC11 as well as GCPII palmitoylation.


Zsófia Kutil, PhD / Postdoc

zsofia.kutil@ibt.cas.cz

Zsófia did her PhD at the Institute of Experimental Botany, Prague, where she originally focused on natural inhibitors of COX-1,2 and 5-LO. Over the time, she became more interested in protein functions and structures than in their inhibitors and she has joined the lab. Her major project is aimed at unraveling molecular basis of substrate recognition by class IIa HDACs.

jakub.ptacek@ibt.cas.cz
Jakub was born in the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands in the middle of Czech Republic. He studied high school in his home town and then moved to Prague to study biochemistry at Charles University. In Sept 2010 he has joined the lab of Dr. Cyril Barinka at Institute of Biotechnology of Academy of Sciences. Here he works as PhD. student on projects concerning structure-function studies of glutamate carboxypeptidase II. He plays wind instruments since his childhood and really enjoys playing in his band and cooking.


Kseniya Ustinova, MSc / PhD student

kseniya.ustinova@ibt.cas.cz
Kseniya was born in the west of Ukraine. She graduated in biochemistry at Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, Ukraine. During her master she worked on S.cerevisiae and her work was aimed at identifying resistance genes to isobutanol in yeasts.  In August 2015 she moved to Prague and joined the PhD program at the Institute of Biotechnology CAS and the department of Biochemistry, Charles University. Her PhD project is aimed at elucidating the substrate specificity of human histone deacetylases.
