Nanostructured electrochemical sensors for glucose detection (Nanomateriálmi modifikované elektrochemické senzory pre stanovenie glukózy)

Jana is a researcher in the field of Physical Chemistry at the Faculty of Science at the Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice. She completed her master´s degree in Physical Chemistry in the academic year 2016/2017. Her research is currently focused on a development of new generation of blood glucose sensors, which could significantly contribute to better and more effective treatment of diabetes and commercialization of new and more efficient biological sensors. Nowadays she is focused on development of electrochemical sensors for virus detection. She also cooperates with the Slovak Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Materials Research. During her studies she participated in a foreign scientific internships. In 2016 she worked with supervisor prof. Dr. Dr. Simone Wiegand, PhD. at the Julich International Research Center, Germany. In 2018 she worked on a project with prof. RNDr. Peter Vanýsek, Csc., within the ERASMUS + internship, where she focused mainly on electrochemical methods and a unique approach to the study of glucose sensors. She is also a member of the Slovak Chemical Society, the European Young Chemists Network (EYCN) and the electrochemical societies The Electrochemical Society (ECS) and the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE). Together with prof. RNDr. Vanýsek, Csc. and other students from the Czech Republic and Slovakia work in the Czechoslovak student chapter ECS founding team. Among other things, she is actively involved in the organizational team of the Young Slovak Chemical Society Forum.
