Course detail

Team Project of Specialization - S2

FCH-MC_TPS2Acad. year: 2021/2022

The content of the practical subject is theoretical and practical teaching in the form of work in a team within a solution of a specific problem in the field of chemistry of biologically active substances. Based on the focus of FCH workplaces relevant to the specialization of chemistry of biologically active substances, topics will be proposed, to which students will sign up according to their interest in a specific issue . Based on the acquired knowledge in the field of teamwork and human resource management, students will share roles and within the team will solve a given problem. They work out an intention, methodology, set goals and implement an experimental block. They will prepare a summary final report, which will be submitted to the opponent and whose outputs students will present in the presentation of the course of the solution and the outputs of the project. The course is a preparation for the following solutions of individual projects within the diploma thesis, where students must join existing research teams and fulfill the assigned role.

Course curriculum

Week 1: Introduction to subject, project management, teamwork. Division of students into teams (4-5 members each), selection of topics and supervisors.
Topics - examples:
a) Overview and preparation of various types of organic micro- and nanoparticles for the transport of biomolecules and cells.
b) Monitoring the biodegradation of biomaterials in model human fluids.
c) Development and preparation of a cream containing selected biologically active substances.
d) Isolation and characterization of biotechnologically important microorganisms
e) Study the stability of the model enzyme in selected formulations.
2.-9. week: Elaboration of project assignment - theoretical and practical block; control days in individual teams.
10.-13. week: Presentation of results of individual teams (1 seminar = 3 teams), discussion, opponent of the final report.

Work placements

Not applicable.


The aim of the course is to introduce the basics of project management and team solution of a specific problem in the field of chemistry for biomedical applications. Students will create small teams, divide roles and within the team will solve a given problem from one of the areas of research or professional practice, including the experimental part. The result will be an opposed summary report and presentation of the course of the solution and the outputs of the project.
