About the Institute of Experimental Medicine of the CAS

We are a renowned centre of basic biomedical research in the Czech Republic and worldwide. Our projects are focused on biomedical challenges, such as finding effective diagnostic markers and treatment of serious diseases associated with ageing of the human population (neurodegeneration, trauma, ischemia, musculoskeletal disorders, cancer and degenerative changes in vision and hearing). We also seriously consider the impact of environmental pollution on human health.

Detailed information about our institute can be found in the About Us section.

Why study or work with us?

Although we are relatively small compared to other research institutions, we try to keep up with the world’s leading institutions and provide our scientists with the best conditions for their challenging work. Since September 2021, we have been a proud holder of the prestigious HR Excellence in Research award for excellence in managing human resources in a scientific environment. In addition, we are also a holder of the Ethnic Friendly Award, which declares an equal attitude towards national and ethnic minorities and multiculturalism within our work teams.

How do our employees evaluate us?

Thanks to our employees’ anonymous and independent evaluation, you can immediately see how it really works at the IEM CAS.

Evaluations on www.atmoskop.cz (open in a new window) go through a multi-step verification process to ensure that the evaluator is a real employee of the institution or company, while all personal and identifying information is hidden from the employer. Therefore, you can be sure of a completely transparent and objective evaluation directly from our employees.

About the Czech Academy of Sciences

The primary mission of the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS) and its institutes is to conduct research in a broad spectrum of the natural, technical and social sciences and the humanities. This research, whether highly specialized or interdisciplinary in nature, aims to advance developments in scientific knowledge at international level, while also taking into account the specific needs of both the Czech society and the national culture. Researchers of the Academy institutes also participate in education, particularly through doctoral study programs for young researchers and also by teaching at universities. The Academy also fosters collaboration with applied research and industry. The integration of Czech science into the international context is being promoted by means of numerous joint international research projects, and through the exchange of scientists with counterpart institutions abroad.

The CAS is financed primarily from the state budget. The pattern of research funding at the Academy conforms to current international standards. In addition to basic institutional financing of the research objectives of the Academy institutes, target-oriented financing is being more widely practised to carry out research projects and grant projects, selected on the basis of public competition. The CAS was the first institution in the Czech Republic to establish its own Grant Agency which financially supports research projects selected through a peer-review procedure involving reviewers from abroad. The individual Academy institutes obtain additional financial resources by participating in national and also international research programs.
