Healthy Human Beings

At the Technical University of Liberec numerous research projects have produced groundbreaking findings which have a vast application potential in the area of health sciences. Cross-disciplinary research establishes a baseline for what is normal behavior in the fundamental molecular mechanisms that drive life. Scientists begin asking questions about what happens when genetic or environmental changes perturb a cell and alter its behavior. Progress in one research area provides data for others. Basic scientists provide physicians with new patient care tools - diagnostics, prevention methods, and treatments - to assess through clinical trials. In turn, clinical researchers make new observations about the nature and progression of disease that often stimulates new questions in the lab, driving basic science in new directions.
