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 cross-talk in various contexts of mammalian development and disease.
My career as a lab technician began at Loschmidt Laboratories in Brno (https://loschmidt.chemi.muni.cz/peg/), 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.
I am a bachelor student of Molecular biology and Biochemistry at Charles University. I am very excited to begin my journey in Janek’s lab and keep on increasing my knowledge about the molecular basis of embryonic development and effect of signalling pathways on various diseases.
I am a bachelor student of general biology at Charles University with a strong interest in molecular basis of cell development and signaling. I want to explore more about signaling pathways and their role in embryonic development and continue to increase my knowledge about cell regulation.
