Background

I began my career as a specialist in analytical and bioanalytical chemistry with a special interest in mass spectrometry at the Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority (CAFIA). I was the first to start using the LC-MS methodology for routine measurement of pesticides, mycotoxins and organic pollutants in food and agricultural products at the CAFIA. After my transition to IOCB ASCR Prague I established and lead a proteomics subgroup of mass spectrometry at the institute. I have since developed and implemented the latest methodology for qualitative and quantitative analysis of proteomics and have collaborated on projects related to cancer biology, virology, enzymology and entomology. In 2010, I began my postdoctoral work at GUMC concentrating on bioanalytical mass spectrometry in projects in glycobiology and cancer. I have pioneered methodology for site-specific glycosylation analysis based on MRM and DIA technology in biological samples. My current effort is focused on the structure-specific resolution of glycostructures using mass spectrometry. My work is published in 53 peer-reviewed international journals. I look forward to new challenges and opportunities to expand and develop field of glyco-bioanalytical chemistry in cancer-related biology, immunology, virology and glycobiology.
