Two postgraduate students, Kateřina Šulcová (Pastirčáková) and Jaromír Šulc, have developed an algorithm that will save money of transport companies. Moreover,  they successfully presented it at a conference in Orlando, USA. Their algorithm helps to take managerial decisions to streamline internal processes, and it answers the question of what connections need to be taken out of service to save a vehicle, a driver, and thereby even the funds. "We can outsource the connection...
Detection of pancreatic cancer at an early stage. It was precisely a year ago that Professor Michal Holčapek of the Faculty of Chemical Technology presented a method that may save the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients. Journalists kept asking for interviews, doctors asked for the test results, and Professor Holčapek kept receiving one phone call after another. Volunteers wanted to join the research project and offered their samples for analysis. It will take some time, however, to...

The world’s oldest well unearthed by archaeologists near Ostrov in the Chrudim area, Pardubice Region when doing construction works for the D35 motorway is far from resembling a source of water now. It has been disassembled into five parts which have been immersed – rather unusually – into sugar in plastic basins. The restoration specialists have used something as simple as crystal sugar to preserve a 7000-old oak well. With no additives, crystal sugar works the best. A total of seven...
What alloys of copper were used by ancient Egyptians? Where did the copper used by ancient metallurgist come from? Jiří Kmošek, a young researcher of the Faculty of Restoration of the University of Pardubice, who specializes in analysing historical artifacts, is trying to answer these questions. Now, a prestigious fellowship awarded by the Austrian Academic of Sciences will put him in a better position to do so for the following three years.   Ing. Jiří Kmošek does part of his...
Bandages embedded with unique sensors that autonomously ask for redressing have been developed by Tomáš Syrový of the Department of Graphic Arts and Photophysics of the Faculty of Chemical Technology of the University of Pardubice after four years of hard work. The technology has been awarded the “2019 Visionary” award in the 9th year of a national competition for innovative projects. “When bandage is applied to the body for a prolonged period of time, the wound does not heal well and...
A team led by Professor Michal Holčapek of the Department of Analytical Chemistry of the Faculty of Chemical Technology is trying to detect the pancreatic cancer at its early stage, and introduce a method which will make the lives of hundred thousands of patients easier. Michaela Chocholoušková, a PhD candidate, who is currently gaining professional experience in Singapore, is also a member of his team. She is trying to develop a procedure for verifying the quality of the biological samples...
In 1989, Jiří Málek was 30 years old and went to Spain on a research stay. Therefore, he could only follow the 1989 events from abroad. He learnt from the press what was going on not only in Czechoslovakia. “No one knew what the outcome would be. But I would rely on young people even today,” says Jiří Málek, the Rector of the University of Pardubice. Can you recall what you were actually doing on Friday 17 November? Quite exactly. As a researcher at the Institute of Chemical...
Faculty of Chemical Technology and Faculty of Health Studies of the University of Pardubice have been voted by students and graduates the faculties of the year in their respective categories. The latter has won the award for the first time. “The award makes both me and the whole faculty extremely happy; on the other hand it is also a commitment to work hard in the future. We really appreciate all the votes received from students thanks to whom we have got the award; we strive to be not...
