Ondřej Lidický at the International Grand Final of FameLab in Cheltenham

Czech chemist Ondřej Lidický will be representing the Czech Republic at the International Grand Final of FameLab, an international competition aiming to discover charismatic, up-and-coming scientists who inspire people to see the world from a new perspective in just three minutes. Ondřej Lidický and his presentation called Drug Delivery Service won the Czech National Finals in Prague in May 2015. The event is part of Cheltenham Science Festival.

Ondřej Lidický is a Ph.D. student at the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and also the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague. He is also a singer, poet and an actor. 
While his dream of becoming a writer remains unfulfilled, he is collecting literary ideas as he works on his PhD in the field of biopolymers at the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry. One of his hobbies is photography, which is best practised when travelling. That is why one day he wants to take a break in his life and travel the world. His other hobbies include playing guitar, dancing, acroyoga and humour. His wish is to have enough time in his life and not stop dreaming. Ondra's life motto is: "The bigger our dreams, the bigger our world is."

FameLab is a communications competition designed to engage and entertain by breaking down science, technology and engineering concepts into three minute presentations. Contestants from around the world take part armed only with their wits and a few props that they can carry onto stage – the result is an unpredictable, enlightening and exciting way to encourage your curiosity and find out about the latest research. FameLab is organised by British Council.
