Biography

I joined Kubista lab as a PhD student in 2015 to work on the development of new methodology for gene expression analysis of microRNAs by RT-qPCR called “Two-tailed RT-qPCR”. I utilize this method together with conventional RT-qPCR, RNA-Seq and single-cell RNA-Seq to study transcriptional changes of coding and non-coding genes in animal models of spinal cord injury and brain ischemic injury. I am also part of the project that aims to identify specific circulating microRNAs to serve as potential clinical biomarkers in patients with spinal cord injury. I am particularly interested in large-scale data analysis and interpretation of results from our high-throughput experiments. Before coming to Prague, I studied Biotechnology at the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra and spent few months as an intern at the Max F. Perutz Laboratories in Vienna. Besides research, I enjoy sport games, competitions and hanging out with friends.
