Jan Mašek, PhD

Research group leader

Originally coming from the laboratory of Vitezslav Bryja in Brno where I got charmed by the Wnt/b-catenin signaling pathway. I continued in Prague in Zbynek Kozmik´s lab focusing on the role of transcription factor Tcf7l1 in early events of the mammalian neural crest cell development. I did my postdoc in Emma Andersson´s lab at Karolinska institute studying the specificity of the individual Notch ligands towards their receptors in the context of early liver formation and disease.

My current goal as a group leader is to create a thriving research hub for studies of signaling crosstalk in various contexts of mammalian development and disease.

Msc, Katarína Kováčová

Lab manager

My career as a lab technician began at Loschmidt Laboratories in Brno (, specialized in protein engineering research. After moving to Prague I worked as a research assistant at Zbynek Kozmik Lab under the leadership of Ondrej Machon, where we studied transcription factor Meis2 and it’s roles in zebrafish and mouse embryonic development. I am excited I can now become part of Janek’s laboratory and constantly improve my lab skills under his leadership.
