I got my first microscope at the age of 10 and this moment probably predestined my whole further journey. My whole youth was accompanied by the verve for all natural sciences and a dream to become a scientist. My heart drew me, for some reason, to the medicine where I reopened that magical window into the microscopic world. From the second year of my studies, I work as a lecturer at the Department of Histology and Embryology of the Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Králové and precisely this desire to share my knowledge brought me to the team of this revolutionary textbook.
