Petra Kovaříková, Ph.D. student

Petra got her MSc. in Biochemistry at Masaryk University, Faculty of Science. She joined the group in September 2015. Major aim of her projects is to elucidate novel interactions between proteins involved in primary cilia formation. She is currently working on two main tasks: generation and validation of stably transfected cell lines for future proteomic experiments and characterization of putative novel centrosomal components by various biochemical and molecular biological approaches.

Other than that, Petra is a big fan of American football. She trains five times a week and every now and then even becomes a football referee. Any remaining time she devotes to her family and to tourism.
