Mayor of Brno in FNUSA-ICRC
In mid-June, our center was visited by the Mayor of the City of Brno, Markéta Vaňková. She met the FNUSA-ICRC leadership, headed by our chair Gorazd B. Stokin.
After the introductory presentation of the activities, the tours of selected research teams followed. The Mayor of Brno thus had the opportunity to visit our unique sleep laboratory where we treat patients with sleep disorders, as well as the laboratories of the Biomedical Engineering team, where we presented our new systems for a more accurate diagnosis of cardiac ventricular dyssynchrony and epilepsy. As part of the tour, we also showed the Clinical Pharmacology Unit, where studies of new active substances on volunteers from the Brno population are held for the first time and introduced a new project of research on the use of medical cannabis for the treatment of selected chronic diseases. Representatives of the city of Brno also met with the unique project Kardiovize Brno 2030, a program of cardiovascular prevention in Central and Eastern Europe based on population analysis.
