Research centres

As part of the project of ”Promoting Research at Tertiary Education Institutions”, high quality research and scientific centres were established at faculties, serving as basic material and scientific springboards, which co-ordinate the scientific potential for research in which the faculty employees have achieved significant international success.

Institute of Molecular and Translational Medicine

The recently established the Institute of Molecular and Translational Medicine (IMTM), Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, Palacky University in Olomouc is one of the most influential research projects carried out in the Czech Republic. The IMTM's mission is basic and translational biomedical research with the goal to understand the underlying causes of cancer and infectious diseases and to develop future human medicines and diagnostics.

Centre of the Region Haná for Biotechnical and Agricultural Research

The Centre has become a part of the existing university complex on Šlechtitelů Street where  modern infrastructure was constructed—four new buildings for individual research programmes. New facilities enable concentration of all participat- ing worksites into a single campus, consolidation of the research teams, and equipping them with state-of-the-art equipment. Research carried out at the Centre puts emphasis on inter-disciplinarity and includes the following programmes:

  • Protein biotechnology
  • Plant biotechnology
  • Chemical biology and genetics
  • Novel materials and methods for plant breeding
  • Phytofarm and genetic resources of vegetables, medicinal, aromatic and culinary plants

Research Centre for Optics

The Research Centre for Optics is a research project, the main purpose of which is to establish a basis for development of modern optics in Czech Republic. This topic has been investigated systematically since 1960 at Palacký University at the Department of Optics, Faculty of Sciences, and Laboratory of Optics, which was in the year 1984 transformed into the Joint Laboratory of Optics of Palacký University and Institute of Physics, Czech Academy of Sciences. In the framework of this project, a new link of the research potentials of PU and Inst. of Physics, which is represented by its Division of Optics in the project, has been established.

Research is concentrated on the fields of quantum optics, fundamental aspects of quantum theory, quantum theory of measurement, quantum cryptography, quantum information and quantum computing. Also methods of classical optics are used and new results are expected in the framework of holography, statistical optics and development of sensors and optical materials.
