Brief annotation:

The Sumbalova Koledova research group: Mechanisms of epithelial morphogenesis aims to unravel fundamental mechanisms of organ formation and tumorigenesis with translational applications towards biotechnology and therapeutic aproaches. To this end, we use an interdisciplinary approach employing organoids, genetic mouse models, single-cell and spatial genomics, biosensors, state-of-the-art imaging techniques, mathematical modelling, and AI-driven image analysis. The PhD project will focus on developing novel solutions to human nutrition using organoids. The project has major technology transfer potential and tackles environmental challenges of food industry.

Funding: Internal Grant Agency of Masaryk University
