A student of our faculty has been admitted to the most prestigious international PhD program EMBL
Pavlína Marková graduated from the Faculty of Science of Charles University with a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry and is now pursuing a Master's degree in Macromolecular Chemistry at the Department of Physical and Macromolecular Chemistry. As well as excelling in her studies at our Faculty, she also excelled at the University of Leicester where she was part of the Chemical Biology research group.
Pavlína Marková has been involved in science and research since her undergraduate studies. Thanks to her interest in nuclear physics and chemistry, she joined the Chemistry of Solids and Nanomaterials research group at the Department of Inorganic Chemistry in her first year, then moved to the Soft Matter research group at the Department of Physical and Macromolecular Chemistry, where she joined the research group of the Department of Physical and Macromolecular Chemistry under the supervision of Ing. Marius Marcin Uchman, Ph.D.. The result of Pavlina's scientific activities so far are also articles in international scientific journals, especially her first-authored one, published in the European Polymer Journal.
Pavlína also actively participates in international scientific conferences, the nearest one being the 36th Conference of the European Colloid and Interface Society (ECIS), which will take place in September this year in Crete.
The latest major achievement so far is the acceptance into the EMBL International PhD Programme (EIPP), the most prestigious postgraduate programme in Europe. This not only provides its students with top-notch training, but also pays attention to the balance between theory and practice, individual guidance, creative freedom and autonomy, as well as teamwork.
As part of this programme, from October this year Pavlina will be working in the research group of Prof. Fiona Watt, an internationally renowned scientist in the field of stem cell biology.
We are honored that a student of our faculty has been accepted and we wish Pavlína every success in her future scientific career.
