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...

The team of organic chemists from the University of Pardubice have invented a new way of producing a core substance used as the primary source for human and veterinary medicinal products. The final products are used to cure erection disorders, ischemic disease of the lower extremities, gastric ulcers, or as a supportive substance in childbirth. The information was provided by the spokesperson of the University Martina Macková. The scientists focused on a new method of producing Corey...
A seven thousand years old well – the oldest well found in the Czech Republic and the oldest wooden architectural structure in Europe – is to be preserved by the experts of the University of Pardubice. The unique discovery was made by archaeologists last year at Ostrov in the Pardubice Region where, during the construction of the D35, they uncovered another seven wells from different prehistoric times. The parts of the well are now stored in the cellars of the Piarist College in Litomyšl...
Pancreatic cancer is the most insidious type of cancer. It is referred to as the “hidden killer” because a period of no symptoms is followed by a sudden and severe onset. It is usually too late to treat it and 95% of patients die, usually within a year. For a long time scientists and doctors had no clue how to treat it, or diagnose it at an early stage. This may change now as a research team led by Professor Michal Holčapek of the Faculty of Chemical Technology at the University of Pardubice...
With the participation of representatives of twenty-five research institutions from around the world, the 4th Annual Meeting of SPARK Global members took place on July 21-22. At the meeting held at the oldest Berlin University clinic Charité, our University was represented by Ing. Michal Svoboda and Ing. Karolina Kašparová from the Technology and Knowledge Transfer Centre (CTTZ). The University of Pardubice joined the SPARK program, which was founded in 2006 at Stanford University, USA,...
Czech scientists have made a surprising discovery. A metal pot buried in a tomb in Egypt's Abusir 5000 years ago was made of material that was used at the time in distant Anatolia - modern-day Turkey. They proved that the metals had travelled a few thousand miles before they got to their owner. One of the experts who examined the material used for the manufacture of the container was Ing. Jiří Kmošek, a chemist from the Department of Chemical Technology, the Faculty of Restoration. The...
On Tuesday 30 May, Prague hosted the announcement of the 6th year of the competition for the best project in research, development and innovations based on successful collaboration between a research higher education institution and the application sphere. The Best Collaboration of 2017 Prize was awarded to the team of Dr.-Ing. Jan Macák from the Centre of Materials and Nanotechnologies (CEMNAT), Faculty of Chemical Technology, University of Pardubice, and PARDAM, s.r.o. The...
