The only way to know more is to ask endlessly for solutions and never stop looking for answers. I am a professor of Molecular Biology and Genetics. My research interests focus on the study of nucleic acids and proteins and their roles in transcription regulation, pathogenesis of various diseases, including their involvement in longevity, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. We use a wide range of methods ranging from bioinformatics, biophysical to molecular biology methods. Publications on Medline. Google scholar.

I joined this department in February 2023. Before coming, I received my BSc (laboratory science) and MSc (medical biochemistry) degrees from Iran, I have a passion for delving into the intricacies of neuroscience. My academic journey has led me to explore the fascinating world of neuroscience, and I'm enthusiastic about contributing to the field's advancements.

Bc. Petra Orviská


I am a second-year Master’s student of Medical genetics and molecular diagnostics. For my Master’s thesis, I am researching the process of Tau phosphorylation in the choroid plexus and the role of neuroinflammation in this process. For my Bachelor’s thesis, I did a research of various infectious pathogens correlating to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. In my free time, I like to volunteer – I helped as a health care assistant in the hospice Domov Matky Rosy in Rajhrad, as well as in Alzheimercentrum Piešťany. I always had a big interest in the molecular and neurological background of Alzheimer’s disease and am glad to be working on understanding this disease a little closer with my research group.

Andrea Kollárová


Hi, my name is Andrea Kollárová and I am studying 5th year of General Medicine. I am very interested in science, particularly in Pathology and Forensic Science which also corresponds with my dream future career.

In my free time, I love watching films, reading books and in the winter I enjoy skiing.

I joined the Alemeh Zamani Research Group in February 2021 within the national high school competition Students’ Professional Activities (SOČ, Středoškolská odborná činnost) to study the role of choroid plexus during Alzheimer’s disease (AD). This project firstly introduced me to the academic grounds, especially to an unpredictable yet exciting world of neuroscience research.

Currently, I am interested in the neuroinflammatory mechanism occurring in the choroid plexus cells during the pathophysiology of AD. Especially, I am eager to explore the inflammatory signalling pathways crucial to development of chronic immune response, believed to be the causative factor in AD pathogenesis. Moreover, my goal is to grow and flourish as a beginner neuroscientist.

Besides my research journey, I am a General Medicine student at Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University. Eventually, I seek to establish the balance between conducting up-to-date neuroscience experimentation and engaging in impactful clinical practice. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends, dancing, and hiking in the lovely Czech nature!

Believe it or not, science and music have a lot in common. For the ideal results, precision and detail is important in both of these fields, and that's what I try to achieve, but everything has a learning curve. I still have a lot to figure out in science and life, but having the chance to try to work on it since highschool is an opportunity I will always be grateful for. 

Neuroscience is interesting for me especially because my ancestors struggled with dementia, which can be linked to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's. I also love overall figuring things out, which is not always easy to do in the lab, but it's definitely rewarding when you do.

Besides science and music, I also dance, read fantasy books, and work in social media management for some student non-profit organizations.
