Prof. Jan Preisler

        Jan Preisler is a professor of analytical chemistry at Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic. He received his Ph.D. with Ed Yeung at Iowa State University, Ames, in 1997 and spent four years in the group of Barry Karger at Barnett Institute, Boston, afterward. His research interests include the development of instrumentation and methods for bioanalytical chemistry, MS imaging, time-of-flight mass spectrometers, characterization and analytical applications of nanoparticles, single-particle analysis, and development of new sample introduction techniques for inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. He pioneered using kHz lasers to increase the throughput of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry in imaging applications and to detect parallel column separations.

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 served or serves on the editorial advisory boards of Analytical Chemistry and ACS Measurement Science Au. Since 2013, he has chaired the Mass spectrometry section of the Ioannes Marcus Marci Spectroscopic Society.
