Mgr. Gabriel Demo, Ph.D.
Neuron Prize 2022 for Promising Scientists in biology
For research on transcription and translation communication
He researches bacteria and virus-infected cells, focusing on their molecular details. Biologist Gabriel Demo studies protein structures, primarily using the modern cryo-EM method, and is interested in RNA and protein synthesis – how the processes of transcription and translation interact, how they transfer genetic information. Gabriel Demo brought this new scientific trend to Masaryk University, where he graduated and where he received an ERC CZ grant. He presented his current findings in the field of translation in Nature Communications, which highlighted his work as an important step in the fight against infections.
