Meet Your Instructor

Dr. Lucie Vondrakova

PhD in Microbiology, University of Chemistry and Technology, Czech Republic. During and after PhD, she participated in projects on microbial interactions with nanofibers, biofilm formation, and quorum sensing. Her major research concerned human pathogens Campylobacter spp. She developed protocols of molecular-genetic techniques for their identification, quantification, phenotype and genotype characterisation. She focused on determining the limits of such methods including the issue of eliminating signals coming from dead cells, and how the mode of the death influences results. She has strong expertise in microbiology, molecular genetics, and following the internship in Vienna also strong interest in bioinformatics, and microbiomes.
