IPHYS internships come top among secondary-school students (2.12. 2021)

Open Science internships are offered at IPHYS by 4 lecturers (B. Holendová, H. Janíčková, J. Musílková, O. Zimmermannová). The interships offered in year 2022 had an enormous interest. A quarter of all students want to do the internship at IPHYS. Internship on the topic of pancreatic research under the guidance of Dr. Holendová was the most successful in the entire Open Science project, with 85 students applying. The second most requested internship of the whole project was the internship of Dr. Musílková focused on research monitoring the growth and differentiation of stem cells. 71 high school students signed up for it. Internship of Dr. Zimmermannová was interested in 49 students and the internship of Dr. Janíčková 41 students. All IPHYS internships are therefore in the TOP 8 most requested internships. A total of 165 students applied for IPHYS internships and sent 246 applications. In total 656 high school students with 1589 applications were interested in.

Almost a fifth of the lecturers at the Open Science Conference 2021 did their internship at IPHYS (22.11. 2021)

High school students presented the results of their research from internships at the Open Science Conference 2021, which took place on 18 and 19 November 2021 in the conference rooms of the IMG CAS. The students presented the topics they covered during their annual internships and the results they achieved in their research. There were presented 40 presentations from 69 talented young scientists. 11 students who presented 7 presentations completed their internship at the Institute of Physiology CAS.

3rd place in the 2nd field of science - Living Nature and Chemistry was won by student Alena Machalíková, lecturer Blanka Holendová from the Laboratory of Mitochondrial Physiology. Expert jury composed of: RNDr. Hana Sychrová, DrSc., Mgr. Tomáš Kraus, Ph.D. and RNDr. Petr Novák, Ph.D. agreed at a very high level not only the quantity and quality of the presented results, but also the presentation itself.
