Tomáš Kára, one of the founders of the International Clinical Research Center (ICRC), has passed away

With deep regret, we announce that Assoc. Prof. MUDr. Tomáš Kára, Ph.D., has passed away after a tough battle with cancer.

He served as a long-standing physician at the 1st Internal Cardioangiologic Clinic of FNUSA and LF MU. Although he hadn’t worked here for many years, he left not only colleagues, with whom he maintained professional and friendly ties, but also an indelible mark in the form of the International Clinical Research Center. It was his close connections with the Mayo Clinic that led to the establishment of our scientific center.

“MUDr. Kára was not only an excellent physician but also a visionary who managed to realize his dream. The International Clinical Research Center would not have been established without him. We thank him for everything he did for our hospital,” added the hospital director, Ing. Vlastimil Vajdák.

Our sincere condolences to his family, friends, and all who knew him and valued him.
