Vladimír HAVLÍČEK, PhD

Vladimír Havlíček studied organic technology at the Prague Institute of Chemical Technology and joined the Institute of Microbiology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, in 1991. In 1995, he 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 conducting proteomics experiments in the Czech Republic and benefited from the country’s first installations of ESI (on sector and ion trap instruments) and MALDI-TOF, and later (in 2004), both ionization techniques together on a 9.4 T FTICR MS. He was appointed the Chair of the Laboratory of Molecular Structure Characterization in 2006. Commencing in 2008, his laboratory began applying mass spectrometry imaging and ambient ionization techniques. The lab now owns 12 T FTICR and ion mobility MS instruments, three NMR spectrometers (including a HPLC-NMR-MS instrument), and multiple electron and optical microscopy instruments. As of Dec 2020, the laboratory had 25 employees.

Professor Vladimír Havlíček 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, has published over 200 papers and 6 book chapters, edited one Wiley book (Natural Products Analysis: Instrumentation, Methods, and Applications), and received 3 patents. He has taught clinical and biomolecular mass spectrometry at Palacky and Charles Universities (Czech Republic). Since 2014, he has served as a board member of directors for the Resonance Charity Fund (Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry, Prague). His major 2021 grants cover the fields of infection metallomics and metabolomics with a special focus on next-generation infection diagnostics. In Dec 2020, Vladimír Havlíček had 3885 citations in Google Scholar (H=31), and his work has been cited 1842 times since 2015 (H=21).
