Miroslava Anderova was born in April 4, 1958, in the Czech Republic. She obtained in 1984 an M.S. degree in chemistry from the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague, Czech Republic. She was a Ph.D. student at the Institute of Microbiology, ASCR, from 1986 to 1991. In 1991, she obtained a Ph.D. degree in microbiology from the same institute. She occupied from 1991 to 1993 a Postdoctoral position at the Department of Biology, UCSD, San Diego, CA, USA. She worked in 2009 as the Head of the Laboratory of Neurobiology, IEM ASCR, and in 2010 as the Head of the Department of Cellular Neurophysiology, IEM ASCR. She worked as a Member of the Organizing Committees of the 10th European Meeting on Glial Cells in Health and Disease in 2011 and the Neural Stem cells and Brain Repair-Satellite Symposium of the 6th IBRO. Her research interests include CNS disorders, such as ischemia, trauma, and Alzheimer’s disease, glial cell (preferentially astrocytes and NG2 glia) physiology and pathology, diffusivity of the brain during CNS disorders, quantification of astrocyte volume changes using three-dimensional confocal morphometry, calcium signaling in glial cells, and the role of TRPV4 channels during ischemia, neurogenesis, and gliogenesis in postischemic brain.
