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.


Jan Komárek, PhD / Postdoc

jan.komarek@ibt.cas.cz
Honza received his PhD degree in biomolecular chemistry at Masaryk University in Brno, where he studied the structure-functional aspects of protein-carbohydrate interactions. Between 2014 and 2019, he worked at the BIC Core Facility of CEITEC (where he was responsible for performing of AUC experiments). He joined the lab in 2019 and currently works on the project focused on the expression of UAA-modified proteins, and on the structure-function studies of DVL-3.

gargi.das@ibt.cas.cz
I have studied my Bachelors in Presidency University, Kolkata India in Biological Sciences and Masters from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay India in Biotechnology. I have developed a keen interest in immunology and cell biology during my studies and my Master’s dissertation which was focused on “Understanding the role of IL-9 in maintaining the integrity of the skin”. I wish to pursue my future research focusing on the mentioned disciplines of biology. I have joined Dr. Cyril Barinka’s lab on October 2018 and currently working on the project “Engineered antibodies as platforms for cancer imaging and therapy”. Apart from academia I have a big interest in painting and dancing.
