CzechInvest: The greatest science story in the Czech Republic

Professor Antonín Holý dedicated himself to basic research that brought forth effective agents against HIV and hepatitis. His parent institute now ranks among the best facilities in the Czech Republic.

Numerous promising subjects are being dealt with at the institute. There are roughly forty research groups at the institute. A significant leader in quantum chemistry and source of inspiration for his younger colleagues is Professor Pavel Hobza, one of the most frequently cited Czech scientists ever and a member of the global elite according to the Thomson Reuters database (more than 30,000 scientific citations!). Another pillar of the institute is physical chemist Pavel Jungwirth, who with his group focuses on computational chemistry. The group led by Michal Hocek, who studied directly under Professor Holý, is engaged in medicinal chemistry of nucleic acids. One of the best examples in the Academy of Sciences as a whole, which was highlighted by its management – specifically former chairman Jiří Drahoš and current chairwoman Eva Zažímalová – is the research conducted by German scientist Ullrich Jahn: natural product chemistry, CzechInvest writes.
