Czech Scientists Currently Working Abroad Will Join FNUSA-ICRC Research Programs Thanks to SoMoPro
The South Moravian Center for International Mobility will award grants with a total value of 100 million CZK within the framework of its South Moravian Programme for Distinguished Researchers (SoMoPro). The purpose of the grants is to attract Czech scientists who are currently working at prestigious foreign institutions to the South Moravian region. The program is co-financed from the budget of the South Moravian region and from EU funds (from the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development).
Among the scientists who have already received a SoMoPro grant is Dr. Kamil Paruch, who had spent 13 years in the USA. He received his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Columbia University in New York and subsequently was involved in the research and development of new pharmaceuticals, primarily for oncological diseases. Having returned to the Czech Republic, he continues with these activities at the Chemistry Institute of Masaryk University and in FNUSA-ICRC’s Center for Biomolecular and Cell Engineering.
The South Moravian region now awaits approval of the second phase of SoMoPro.
From mid-May FNUSA-ICRC will be led by Slovenian neurologist Gorazd Stokin More
