Vojtěch Vyklický was successful in the JUNIOR STAR project announced by GA CR (7.11. 2022)

Vojtěch Vyklický succeeded in the grant competition announced by the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic (GA CR) with his project "Conformational dynamics of NMDA receptors: from structure to function and pharmacology". The GA CR will fund 10 new EXPRO projects and 23 JUNIOR STAR projects from next year. Both prestigious competitions aim to promote scientific excellence through superior conditions - EXPRO is for experienced scientists who have a breakthrough idea, while JUNIOR STAR will allow outstanding early career scientists to pursue their own research topics. The five-year projects will receive a total of almost one billion crowns. The EXPRO and JUNIOR STAR competitions always support only the best projects that have been endorsed by international evaluation panels. Their researchers have better support conditions during the five-year solution period.
