Honorary members

CSMS may bestow honorary membership to the Czech as well as foreign distinguished individuals of mass spectrometry. Nomination can be made by every CSMS member and must be approved by the Executive Board. It is expected that honorary membership will be awarded biannually.

prof. RNDr. Miloš Novotný, DrSc.

Indiana University, Bloomington

Miloš NovotnýProfessor Milos Novotny has been a pivotal figure in the development of new analytical separation methods and their coupling with mass spectrometry: capillary liquid chromatography, supercritical fluid chromatography and capillary electrophoresis. Novotny group was the first who identified mammalian pheromones and showed biological activity of the artificially prepared pheromones in the mammalian organism. He and his colleagues have significantly contributed to the development of mass spectrometry based techniques in proteomics, glycoproteomics, glycobiology, and chemical biology. Professor Novotny received many awards for the application of these methods in biomedicine.

prof. RNDr. Zdeněk Herman, DrSc.

J. Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry

Zdeněk HermanProfessor Herman is an important Czech physical chemist, who significantly contributed to several areas of mass spectrometry. His research interests are mainly in the fields of dynamics and kinetics of chemical reactions, ion-molecule reactions, reactive scattering of ions, collisional processes, ion-surface interactions and gas-phase ion chemistry. His work about energy transfer during ion-surface collisions contributed to better understanding of collision induced dissociation techniques.
