This year lab was involved in Researchers Night by EIT Food. Attendees tried to build digestive and understand healthy eating habits. Check out our gallery for more pics!

September full of Conferences!

The lab has been busy September 2019. First, Monika gave a plenary on MicroRNAs as small but potent molecules in animal reproduction at 4th International Conference on Endometritis in Cows and Mares. Maria presented her poster on the role of extracellular vesicles biogenesis at the embryo-maternal interface at III KNOW Symposium „Healthy animal – safe food”. Finally, Monika gave a talk on nutritional programming at the Eco Trends. Check out our galley for pics! More at Endometritis, KNOW and Eco Trends web pages.

Welcome Kateřina!

Kateřina Augustynková joined our team in September 2019 as a EIT Food intern.
