Why IMG?

Our research delivers results

We are achieving our main goal – explaining how genes help shape and function in living organisms.

We regularly publish in prestigious journals such as Nature, Science, Cell and Cancer Research, and according to international evaluation we are among the top institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences.

In technology transfer, we have commercialized hundreds of hybridomas producing unique monoclonal antibodies and are the originator of more than 40 patents that we offer to commecial partners for licensing.

International environment

Foreign colleagues are one of the pillars of our Instutite. At IMG there are over 100 PhD students from more than 20 countries and 2 research groups with foreign group leaders.

Communication at IMG is therefore mainly in English. For those interested, we can arrange courses of Czech and other languages.
