It is with deep sadness that we inform you about the recent passing of long-time collaborators Assoc. Prof Jitka Čejková, MD and Čestmír Čejka, PhD.
During their scientific careers, both scientists were mainly devoted to the research of corneal regeneration and, in recent years, to the therapeutic effects of molecular hydrogen.
Jitka Čejková worked at the IEM CAS since its foundation in 1975. She was one of the top experts in ophthalmology; in collaboration with Prof. Wichterle, she participated in the research and development of contact lenses and was a member of a number of professional societies. In addition, she was intensively involved in teaching activities in the undergraduate and postgraduate training of students at medical and science faculties.
Both scientists were highly respected for their excellent collaboration and the scientific legacy they leave behind.
We express our sincere sympathies to their family and ask that you keep them in your thoughts at this difficult time.
