Eva Kočišová

Dr. Eva Kočišová obtained her PhD in Biophysics in 1999 at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI), France and University P. J. Šafárik in Košice, Slovakia (Slovak and French co–tutoring). Since 2000 she is a research assistant at Institute of Physics of Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Prague. During 2001-2002 she was a postdoctoral fellow at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI), France (2-years Marie Curie Fellowship "Uptake, localisation and stability within single living cells of novel type synthetic oligonucleotides of potential therapeutic interest: a microscopic study.").

Her research interests include: steady–state and time–resolved fluorescence spectroscopy (confocal laser microspectrofluorimetry) and fluorescence imaging; uptake of the modified oligonucleotides inside cell and cytotoxic effects on cells incubated with antitumor and antiretroviral drugs; Raman spectroscopy techniques (classic, resonance, surface–enhanced) of biomolecules and cells.  Recently, she became a rising star of Raman spectroscopy, especially due to a newly developed method of drop coating deposition Raman spectroscopy (DCDRS). She has used DCDRS to sensitive detection of biomolecules (e.g. liposomes) and biologically important molecules including pesticides and food contaminants. Many students have received the MSc. and Bc. degree under her supervision.

Dr. Eva Kočišová published more than 40 papers (including J. Am. Chem. Soc., Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., Spectrochimica Acta B, Current Org. Chem., J. Raman Spectroscopy, Nanomaterials) with over 430 citations.
