Balazs Enyedi
Balázs Enyedi, M.D., Ph.D.

AFFILIATION: Department of Physiology, Semmelweis University
FIELD OF SCHOLARSHIP: Cell Biology and Physiology

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:

Balázs Enyedi obtained his medical degree with honours from the Semmelweis University, Budapest in 2006. He joined the laboratory of Miklós Geiszt as a graduate student to study the intracellular role of hydrogen peroxide. After completing his PhD thesis in 2011 he was invited as a postdoctoral fellow to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (New York) to the laboratory of Philipp Niethammer, where he was funded by the Lucille Castori fellowship. His research interest shifted towards understanding the mechanisms of tissue damage induced inflammation. His discoveries here earned him publications in prominent journals such as Nature Cell Biology and Cell.

Balázs has published close to 20 research and review papers and has been invited to several prestigious Gordon and Keystone conferences as a speaker. He was the recipient of the Junior Príma Prize from the Prima Foundation in Hungary and the Premium Post Doctorate Scholarship of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. He holds a Starting Grant from the Semmelweis University where he was recently appointed as an Assistant Professor to establish his laboratory in the Department of Physiology.

Zuh_Deodath_small.jpg
Deodáth Zuh PhD

AFFILIATION: Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Research Centre for the Humanities, Institute of Philosophy
FIELD OF SCHOLARSHIP: History of Philosophy, Phenomenology, Philosophy of Art

BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:

I finished my PhD at the Eötvös Loránt University of Budapest and the Babeș-Bolyai University of Cluj with an investigation in Edmund Husserl’s philosophy of knowledge and its beginnings in his philosophy of arithmetic and his seminal but still relevant studies on the logic of signs. Currently I work as a research fellow at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Due to my training in German language resp. German philosophy and my constantly growing interest in Austro-Hungarian intellectual history, in the last few years I have made progress in encompassing the partly uncharted territories of Hungarian pre-war intelligentsia. Even though my serious interest in the group of intellectuals around the young Georg Lukács and Béla Balázs, the very group that underwent serious research not to mention the decade-long process of collecting their records, there is still enough work to do both in processing primary material and in re-evaluating the results of an established scholarship.
