About Zuzana

I have 10+ years experience in glycobiology, enzymology, biochemistry and analytical chemistry with the focus on the biosynthesis of mycobacterial cell wall while discovering function of unknown proteins and screening potential drug candidates against tuberculosis. Currently by biochemical, analytical and genetic approach, I study biosynthesis of mycobacterial cell wall polysaccharides involved in the physiology and pathogenicity of M. tuberculosis and M. abscessus.
