Novel model of liver microperfusion

(December 21, 2021)


Understanding of liver parenchyma regeneration, which a long-term research topic of the Laboratory of Cancer Treatment and Tissue Regeneration, is crucial for further development of hepatic surgery. In our collaboration with the Department of Mechanics of the Faculty of Applies Sciences, University of West Bohemia, we address this issue using mathematical modelling of liver perfusion with respect to hepatic microanatomy. As one of the results of this effort, a new periodic microanatomical unit – liver representative periodic cell – has been proposed as an alternative to the classical representation originating from the histological structure of the liver. The design of this new unit is based on the geometric characteristics of the liver lobe structure in relation to a multiscale perfusion model derived using the theory of porous media with so-called ‘dual porosity’, which represents the capillary vasculature. The team led by prof. Ing. Eduard Rohan, DrSc., have recently published this result in a Q1 journal PLoS One. The publication was supported by the joint project of the University of West Bohemia and the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen, Charles University, called AMTMI: Application of Modern Technologies in Medicine and Industry CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/17_048/0007280.

Josef Hlávka Foundation Award for employees of our laboratory

(December 1, 2021)

Based on the proposal of the rectors of Czech universities, the Josef, Marie and Zdeněk Hlávka Foundation awards talented university students every year. This is a prestigious award, the award ceremony is associated with the celebration of the holiday of November 17th. For the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen, MUDr. Jáchym Rosendorf, Ph.D., a recent graduate of doctoral studies in Surgery, was awarded this prize for exceptional study results. In his study work, he focused on the development and application of nanofibrous materials for healing support in the digestive tract surgery. This is a topic that he continues to address also after the graduation. Last year, the award was given to MUDr. Richard Pálek, Ph.D., also from our laboratory, but the award ceremony did not take place until this year due to a coronavirus pandemic. We congratulate both recent graduates and wish them many more successes.

The Czech Transplantation Society Paper of the Year Prize for 2020 announced

(May 31, 2021)

The Czech Transplantation Society announced the winner of the Best scientific publication of the year 2020. The prize was awarded to RNDr. Vladimira Moulisova, PhD who is the first author of the original research paper “Novel morphological multi-scale evaluation system for quality assessment of decellularized liver scaffolds”. This work was published as an open access paper in Journal of Tissue Engineering (IF 5.352) in May 2020 (https://doi.org/10.1177/2041731420921121). Dr. Moulisova and co-authors (Jiřík M., Schindler C., Červenková L., Pálek R., Rosendorf J., Arlt J., Bolek L., Šůsová S., Nietzsche S., Liška V., Dahmen U) deal here with the highly potential native biomaterial suitable for liver tissue engineering that could facilitate production of transplantable liver tissue grafts in the future. The whole team is very pleased by receiving this prize which was officially awarded to dr. Moulisova by prof. MUDr. Vladislav Třeška, DrSc., the head of the Society , and prof. MUDr. Tomáš Reischig, Ph. D., the research manager of the Society last Friday.
