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 an associate professor in 2007 and a full professor in 2014.

His research interests include the development of instrumentation and methods for bioanalytical chemistry: mass spectrometry imaging, characterization of nanoparticles and their applications in analytical chemistry, time-of-flight mass spectrometers, off-line interfacing of mass spectrometry with microcolumn separation techniques, and capillary electrophoresis with laser-induced fluorescence detection. He employed kHz lasers 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 mass spectrometry.

He enjoys teaching courses, such as Mass spectrometry of biomolecules and Molecular luminescence, promoting analytical science at the annual Schools of Mass Spectrometry in the Czech Republic, and working with students. He currently serves on the editorial advisory board of Analytical Chemistry and chairs the Mass spectrometry section of the Czech Spectroscopic Society.
