IMG Open House

Learn how we do science at IMG! During the day of IMG Open House, we will show you behind the scenes of selected laboratories, our state-of-the-art light and electron microscopy laboratories, or e.g. our fish facilities.

The IMG Open House will be organized on 14 November 2023. This year we have prepared 5 lectures and 14 excursions to research groups, in both Czech and English. An overview of the activities is available on the website

The Week of the Czech Academy of Sciences

The Week of the Czech Academy of Sciences includes lectures, exhibitions, workplace events, documentary screenings, workshops and other activities across all scientific disciplines.

During this event at IMG, you can try out a range of laboratory techniques (in the past, for example, isolating DNA from fruit). We also prepare interesting lectures (in the past, for example, on the diversity of human genome) and numerous exhibitions.

The next Week of the Czech Academy of Sciences will take place from 6 to 12 November 2023.

Advances in Molecular Biology and Genetics

For PhD students in the biological and biomedical subjects in the 1st and 2nd year we organize a two-week course on the latest scientific advances in the field of molecular biology, genetics, biomedicine and biotechnology.

The course with more than 45 years of tradition is accredited at Charles University in Prague under the designation MPGS0034. It is also open to the public and to students from other disciplines.

The next course will take place on 30 October – 10 November 2023. More information and registration are available at course website.
