EATRIS Czech Republic

Czech Republic has 11 institutes in the EATRIS network, spanning over all 5 platforms: Biomarkers, ATMP & Biological, Imaging & Tracing, Small Molecules and Vaccines. The Czech node has been a partner in many projects such as EATRIS-Plus – the flagship project and for example EOSC-Life, where EATRIS-CZ contributed to development of open-access database Micha. 

During the pandemic, National Director of Czech node, Dr. Marian Hajduch (IMTM) became a national coordinator for SARS-CoV-2 testing and he led COVID-19 Laboratory Group (advisory body to the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic). Members of this group were also representatives of other EATRIS-CZ institutes, namely CEITEC, CU, IOCB. Under his leadership, the group established full electronation/digitalisation of testing, increased capacity form 0 (March 2020) to 55.000 PCR tests and 35.000 antigen tests/day (December 2020). This activity resulted in number of recommendations or orders issued by the Czech Government and complex legislation around COVID-19 pandemic.
