Doctor Veronika Bandúrová was born in 1988 as Veronika Živicová in Malacky. She graduated general medicine from the 3rd Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague in 2014. She began as a Ph.D. student of 1st Faculty of Medicine in a MD/Ph.D program in the Institute of Anatomy and a resident in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, Faculty Hospital Motol.
Her field of interest is cell biology of head and neck carcinoma, especially tumor microenvironment and cancer-associated fibroblasts. Second part of her work is a correlation of tumor to the process of healing and scaring.
She is a member of Czech Society of otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery. For three years, she is the principal investigator of Charles University Grant Agency project “The stroma of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas as a prognostic factor”. She presented results of her work in different Conferences in the Czech Republic as well as abroad in Czech or English language. Several times, she was awarded in these conferences.

Fac. of Med. MU as a biomedical research laboratory. In the beginning, the focus of lab was on the discovery of biomarkers of prostate cancer. Over the years there has been a significant expansion in personel, laboratory equipment, experimental directions, expertise and collaboration. These days, the overarching focus of the lab is analysis of cancer resistance.
The laboratory focuses on both in vitro and in vivo experiments and also on analysis of biological specimen from patients. Nevertheless, a significant attention is focused on experiments with cell lines and tumor primocultures. Most extensively studied cancers include prostate cancer, breast cancer and spinocellular cancers of the head and neck.
MUDr. Jan Peychl, Ph.D., is the Head of the core Light Microscopy Facility (LMF) at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) in Dresden, Germany. LMF MPI-CBG is one of the largest light microscopy facilities in Germany, offering 25 advanced light microscopy imaging systems to 230 user per year, who book around 40 000 hours of instrument time annually.
Jan Peychl graduated from the Charles University, Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic in 1995. From 1996 till 2002 he worked as a junior assistant professor at the Department of Medical Biology, Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Kralove. Since 2002 he worked as light microscopy imaging specialist at the LMF MPI-CBG Dresden. Since 2005 he took over the leadership of the LMF MPI-CBG. He also serves as a member of Advisory Board of German BioImaging and Czech BioImaging. He is co-organizer of regular EMBO practical courses on Light Sheet Microscopy which take place at the MPI-CBG Dresden.
Associate Professor Zdeněk Horák graduated from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, CTU in Prague in 2001, specialization Biomedical and Rehabilitation Engineering. In 2008, he received a PhD in Biomechanics and in 2014 he was habilitated in Applied Mechanics. His career began at the Department of Mechanics, Biomechanics and Mechatronics at CTU in Prague, where he worked as a lecturer and later as associate professor. Since 2015 he has been an associate professor at the Department of Technical Studies of the Polytechnic University of Jihlava.
Prof. Horák's professional interest concerns biomechanics of the human body, especially their three sub-fields. The first is the implementation of structural and strength analysis by the finite element method. The second is the design, development and testing of implantable medical devices. The third is forensic biomechanics when this field was named as a court expert.
Zdeněk Horák actively publish results of his research and development in the international journals, he is a member of the Committee of the Czech Society for Biomechanics and he is the chairman of the board CZECHIMPLANT cluster.
Radek Kebrle works as surgeon in Hand and plastic surgery clinic Vysoké nad Jizerou. He is member of the board of Czech Society for Surgery of the Hand and also member of: Czech Society for Orthopaedic and Trauma surgery, FESSH, EWAS, IBRA.
Morphology of tendon complex in hand do have influence on tendon treatment. Author is presenting anatomical details in tendon complex morphology and its relations to the surgical repair of lacerated tendons. He is discussing techniques of repair and its impal to tendon anatomy and biology.
