Mgr. Martin Schwarzer, Ph.D.
Neuron Prize 2023 for Promising Scientists in biology
Neuron Prize 2023 for Promising Scientists in biology. Awarded for research on the effect of bacteria on the growth of young mammals.
Martin Schwarzer investigates the effect of bacteria on the growth of young mammals. With his scientific team, they were the first to show that gut bacteria are essential for optimal growth at an early age. It is an important discovery that contributes to understanding the microbiome's influence on the growth of mammals and can make a fundamental contribution to solving malnutrition in children. He received a Neuron Impuls grant for his research in 2017, which he finished by publishing the results in the journal Science. Martin Schwarzer works at the Institute of Microbiology of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in Nové Hrádek.
How do bacteria affect the growth of young? And how important is the composition of the microbiome in the intestines of mammals? Martin Schwarzer, laureate of the Neuron Prize 2023 in the field of biology, is looking for answers.
Martin Schwarzer is also a laureate of the 2017 Neuron Impuls award. Read his story - from first support by Neuron to being published in the prestigious journal Science.
