Ivan Miksik born in Prague, Czech Republic, in 1960. He studied chemistry of polymers at Technical University (1983, Pardubice) and received the Ph.D. degree in physiology (1991, Academy of Sciences of Czech Republic) and the D.S. degree in analytical chemistry (2000, University of Pardubice); he serves as an Associate Professor (2004) as well as a Professor (2011) of analytical chemistry at University of Pardubice (Czech Republic). He has a broad spectrum of professional interests that includes development of new methods for analysis of a broad spectrum of compounds by capillary electrophoresis and chromatography and their applications to the analysis of biological (physiological) functions of the organism. In practice, he uses coupling of capillary electrophoresis and chromatography to mass spectrometry and their application to study of proteins, peptides, and other physiological important compounds, analysis of steroids and their metabolites in organisms, native and modified proteins; physiology and chemistry of connective tissue and their cross-links, study of nonenzymatic posttranslational modification of proteins, and analysis of pigments (avian eggshell). He works at Institute of Physiology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, and currently, he heads the Department for Analysis of Biologically Active Substances. He is teaching at University of Pardubice (Faculty of Chemical Technology) and University of Hradec Kralove (Faculty of Sciences). He was a Committee Member of various international scientific symposia; he served as an Editor of Journal of Chromatography A, Bibliographic Section, and now, he is a Member of the editorial boards of Current Analytical Chemistry and Global Analytical Chemistry. He published numerous scientific publications: 135 papers in the international journals with impact factor, and he coedited of 1 book and 2 Special Volumes of Journal of Chromatography B, 13 chapters in books, and 3 CD-ROMs about bibliography of separation techniques. His h-index is 19.
