On 25 February a group of nine young scientists from Masaryk University was awarded a scholarhip of almost three million Czech crowns. The money has been granted by the Brno´s PhD Talent Programme. The Masaryk University PhD students were among 15 talented young researchers from the South Moravia Region who thanks to the money will be able to focus better on their scientific work. For three more years each of them will get financial support of 100,000 CZK (3,700 EUR) a year.
The scientific work of the award-winning doctoral students from Masaryk University is focused on research areas such as stem cells, breast cancer and toxine impact of cyanobacteria on human liver.
Students have received scholarships from the South Moravian Centre for International Mobility since 2009. During its seven-year existence the PhD Talent Programme has supported 87 students with almost 30 million Czech crowns (more than 1 million euros).
