From an early age, Robert's passion for curiosity-driven learning was apparent and led him to pursue a Genetics Technologies degree in Nitra Slovakia, where he earned two Dean’s Awards for outstanding academic performance. This was followed by a PhD program at the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the ASCR in Prague, where he studied novel proteins functioning in mammalian meiosis.
Robert believes that knowledge sharing is crucial for science. He has presented his work at many prestigious international conferences, which allowed him to compare notes with prominent scientists working at the cutting edge of cancer and human fertility research. Through a competitive application process, he was awarded financial support from Conference Committee and the Hlavka Foundation to attend these conferences in the United States.
Robert’s desire to be involved in the life-saving Angels Initiative began after his friend suffered a hemorrhagic stroke at a very young age. While his friend was fortunate to receive timely, high-quality therapy at a stroke ready hospital, this event led Robert to become more conscious about the need to ensure all stroke victims receive this level of care. Robert is honored to work towards this mission as an Angels Consultant.
