Department of Medical Biology


Head of the department: RNDr. Jindřich Chmelař, Ph.D.

Deputy: Prof. RNDr. Jan Kopecký CSc.



The Department organizes and guarantees the BSc. study program Biomedical Laboratory Techniques, MSc. program Clinical Biology and Ph.D. program Infection Biology.

Bachelor and master theses deal mainly with immunological and molecular-biological topics with the impact for the human medicine. In the cooperation with the Hospital in České Budějovice students can also work with clinical data. An interdisciplinary attitude to research is accented; the Department collaborates for example with the Institute of Parasitology (Biology centre of the AS CR, v.v.i.). The aim of the Department is to educate independent graduates with good theoretical and practical background that are able to get a job in clinical, diagnostic or forensic laboratories, as well as in biomedical research. In contrast to similar study programs in other faculties/ universities, special emphasis is put on the scientific approach and the ability of independent experimental work.
