Michal H. Kolář research group

We are a young group of researchers and students at University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague, Czech Republic. Using computers and supercomputers, we study how proteins are born on ribosomes. We like python and GROMACS.

Michal H. Kolář – group leader

Michal H. Kolář

Michal is a theoretical biophysicist based in Prague, Czech Republic. His expertise ranges from high-level quantum chemistry to large-scale simulations of biomolecules. Currently his group studies protein synthesis on ribosomes, while keeping some older topics about small molecules still alive.

Michal shares his flat with four beloved ladies – one wife and three daughters. He's enthusiastic about science but somewhat tends to downshifting. Every summer, he spends two wonderful weeks co-organizing Běstvina summer school for gifted teenagers. Michal likes traveling by train and dislike tomatoes.
