Božena Štúrová-Kuklová – doctor

* 14. XII. 1893, Žamberk
† 14. IV. 1977, Bratislava

Božena Štúrová-Kuklová, Professor of Medicine, was one of the prominent founders of national health services in Slovakia; she participated in education and development of young adepts of medical science. She focused all her scientific and highly professional potential on infectious tuberculosis and bacteriology. She was the first woman in Czechoslovakia to successfully complete her habilitation procedure in 1928 and become the associate professor (a docent) of pathology and internal disease treatment. In 1934 she was, yet again the first woman in Czechoslovakia, appointed as unpaid Professor at the Faculty of Medicine in Bratislava.
She was closely connected to Slovakia from her very young age. She significantly contributed to the establishment of the Department of Tuberculosis at the Faculty of Medicine, Comenius University in Bratislava. Professor Božena Štúrová-Kuklová received many prestigious awards. In 1992 she was awarded the Order of Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk, in memoriam, class III.
