About Jan Preisler

Jan Preisler received his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry at Iowa State University, Ames with Ed Yeung in 1996. After four years in the group of Barry Karger at Barnett Institute in Boston he returned to his alma mater, Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic. Here he became associate professor in 2007 and full professor in 2014.

His research interests include development of instrumentation and methods for bioanalytical chemistry: mass spectrometry imaging, time-of-flight mass spectrometers and their off-line interfacing with microcolumn separation techniques, capillary electrophoresis with laser-induced fluorescence detection and characterization of nanoparticles and their applications in analytical chemistry. He employed a kHz laser for the first time in order to increase sample throughput of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry. In the field of atomic spectrometry, he developed two new sample introduction techniques for inductively coupled plasma.

He enjoys teaching courses, such as Mass spectrometry of biomolecules or Molecular luminescence, promoting analytical science at annual Schools of Mass Spectrometry in the Czech Republic and supervising students.
