Vladimír HAVLÍČEK, PhD

Vladimír Havlíček studied organic technology at Prague Institute of Chemical Technology and joined the Institute of Microbiology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in 1991. In 1995 received a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from the Prague Institute of Chemical Technology. After a postdoctoral stay at the University of Washington in Seattle he began proteomics experiments in the Czech Republic and benefited from the very first installations of ESI (on sector and ion trap instruments), MALDI-TOF, and later (2004) both ionization techniques on a 9.4T FTMS in the country. He was appointed as Chair of the Laboratory of Molecular Structure Characterization in 2006. Commencing from 2008, his laboratory began applying mass spectrometry imaging and ambient ionization techniques. The lab now also harbors 12T FTMS, three NMR spectrometers including HPLC-NMR-MS and multiple electron and optical microscopy equipment. Professor Vladimir Havlicek has served as an advisory board member of the Journal of Mass Spectrometry, European Journal of Mass Spectrometry, and Analytical Chemistry A-Panel (2012-2014). He is a member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts (EASA), received several national and international awards, published more than 130 papers, 6 book chapters, edited one Wiley book in 2014 (Analysis of Natural Products) and received 3 patents. He has taught biomolecular mass spectrometry at Palacky and Charles Universities (Czech Republic). From 2014 he serves as a board member of directors in Resonance Charity Fund (Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry, Prague).
