Portrét MUDr. Volný - FNUSA-ICRC

In the latest issue of the magazine 100+1 Miracles of Medicine, in a special supplement “The Best Physicians in the Czech Republic”, you will find an interview with our researcher MUDr. Ondřej Volný, who has been on the internship at Neurological Clinic in Calgary, Canada, in the position of Stroke and Neurointensive Care Fellow for the second year in a row.

MUDr. Ondřej Volný works as a researcher at the Stroke research group of the International Clinical Research Center under the leadership of Professor Robert Mikulík, where he participates in research of cerebral circulation in relation to stroke. A young neurologist has previously completed prestigious internships at Calgary, the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, which is currently one of the world’s leading institutions regarding brain research. The brain imaging protocol, which was created and patented in Calgary, was successfully transferred to Brno through MUDr. Volný. After returning from an internship from Canada, he plans to enrich the Stroke research team with new findings.

Ondřej Volný, who comes from Ostrava, is also one of the main authors of the textbook of anatomy in English – Memorix Anatomy. Two years ago, he won the prestigious Danubius Young Scientist Award for outstanding young scientists in the countries of the wider Danube region. He was awarded for outstanding results in stroke research and brain imaging.
