PharmDr. Zuzana Lomozová, Ph.D.

Research focus

  • Interactions of natural compounds with biogenic metals
  • In vitro screening of novel iron/copper/zinc/cobalt chelators (comparison of chelating activity at different pHs, assessment of the abilities of these compounds to inhibit Fenton chemistry leading to highly reactive oxygen species and tissue derangement)
  • Effect of nature compounds on copper-induced red blood cell lysis
  • Anti-diabetic potential of dietary polyphenols (inhibition of α-glucosidase)


  • 2019: Master degree: Charles University, Faculty of Pharmacy, Diploma Thesis: Interactions of tamarixetin and isorhamnetin with copper.
  • 2023: Ph.D. and PharmDr. degree: Charles University, Faculty of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmacognosy and Pharmaceutical Botany in the study programme: Pharmacognosy and Nutraceuticals. Doctoral Thesis: Interactions of natural phenolic compounds with biogenic metals.


  • from 2022: Charles University, Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové, Department of Pharmacognosy and Pharmaceutical Botany

Teaching activities

  • Pharmacognosy I and II, Experimental Pharmacodynamics (Czech and English)

Research fellowships

  • 2021 research fellowship at the Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Pécs (3 months)
  • 2023 research fellowship at the Department of Pharmacognosy, Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Graz (3 months)
