Research Manager

Soňa is the manager of our Research Department.

She designs prototypes of new products based on modern science and nutrition.

Before she joined Mana, she spent 5 years at the Laboratory of Cancer Biology of the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the ASCR, v. v. i., where she studied cellular mechanisms for regulation of tumour growth. She earned her Ph.D. doing research and publishing in scientific journals (S.Pecháčková, Oncotarget, 2016; S. Pecháčková, Journal of molecular medicine, 2017). A specialist in biochemistry of the human body, she has been teaching the basics of biochemistry, molecular physics and pharmacology at the Clinic of Nutritional Therapy and Western Phytotherapy since 2013 (Škola Klinické Naturopatie, HealthConcept s.r.o.).

"I like to dedicate my free time to my partner and my family, and I am constantly brushing up on my knowledge of human biochemistry. I'm also an avid hiker and runner, a fan of ashtanga yoga, and a consumer of fashion and handicraft."

"I am interested in the relationship between human health and nutrition, and how best to fuel the body. My obsession with biochemistry and my sporty nature led me to explore alternative nutrition. That's how I found Mana - a real combination of food and science."
