Radek Sindelka, PhD
I am a researcher in the Laboratory of Gene Expression leading a group of young students who are mainly working on projects focused on a combination of methods such as RT-qPCR, RNA-Seq, single cell analysis and functional assays using the interesting model organism Xenopus laevis. During my PhD I developed tools for spatial and temporal expression profiling in Xenopus eggs and embryos. Then I spent four years as a postdoc in Prof. Sive lab at Whitehead Institute, MIT in USA, where I studied the role of Kinin-kallikrein pathway during head development. After my return to Czech Republic, I have continued with projects focused on the role of nitric oxide (product of Kinin-kallikrein pathway) during development, wound healing and regeneration. I collaborate closely with Czech and foreign laboratories, which provide us unique biological models and modern techniques. Out of the lab, I spend my time with family and friends.
