Role: 
Past President

  Prof. Silvia Pastorekova, DSc., is heading the Department of molecular medicine at the Institute of Virology, Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava, Slovakia. She principally contributed to identification, molecular and functional characterization of carbonic anhydrase IX, a component of pH-regulating machinery of tumor cells, and a marker of hypoxia with prognostic and predictive value. Her main research interests include understanding of hypoxia and acidosis as drivers of cancer progression and elucidating physiological and molecular mechanisms of pH regulation and metastatic conversion, with main focus on CA IX as potential therapy target.
