Dr. Pravda obtained his BSc and MSc from University of Pardubice. He carried out his research work under the TEMPUS EU programme in the DCU with Prof. M.R. Smyth on electrochemical biosensors. Later he was awarded the Flemish Community Grant for his research on analytical systems for the detection of neurotransmitters in the Vrije Universiteit Brussels (VUB) with Prof. Y. Michotte in conjunction with Prof. J.-M. kauffmann in Universite Libre de Bruxelles. He was awarded his PhD in the VUB. He then joined the Biosensors research team of Prof. G.G. Guilbault in the UCC as a team leader in 1999 and was appointed a fixed term lecturer in 2002. He won a lectureship in analytical chemistry and forensic science in 2006. He was a study programme director of BSc Chemistry with Forensic Sicence. He will be leaving his post shortly in 2016. His publication h-index equals to 23 to date.

Research Interests

Dr. Pravda's research interests include bioanalytical chemistry, bioelectrochemistry, bioseparations and chemometrics in clinical, pharmaceutical, forensic, and environmental analysis as demonstrated by the enclosed list of publications. The two major research areas are

1. Bio-detection with nano-composite materials  Biomolecular detection in miniaturised analytical devices requires a high sensitivity and small dimensions that can not be achieved by conventional detecting systems. Electrochemical detection can be facilitated by nanomaterials, such as single- or multiwalled carbon nanotubes, nanodiamonds, metal nanoparticles, silicates, electropolymers, catalysts and biocatalysts. Nanocomposite materials are formed by the combination of the above mentioned components. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are promising materials for sensing applications due to several intriguing properties. In particular, their large length-to-diameter aspect ratios provide for high surface-to-volume ratios. Moreover, CNTs have an outstanding ability to mediate fast electron-transfer kinetics for a wide range of electroactive species and serve as a platform for immobilisation of nanoparticles and bimolecules. It is a common knowledge that amino acids and peptides can be detected directly at the copper electrode and it has been recently demonstrated that copper nanoparticles electroplated electrodes can detect amino acids with the LOD of 30 nM. The CNT electrode with chemically deposited copper nanoparticles showed four fold increased sensitivity to saccharides when compared to the Cu disk electrode. Peroxidase and other biocatalysts can be entrapped into a sol-gel of silica. Electrochemically deposited HRP/AuNP/SiO2 porous composite layer may be generated by alkaline hydrolysis of tetramethoxysilane in the presence of HAuCl4 at the cathode. This porous sol-gel combined with the CNT or nanoparticle electrodes is expected to offer an improved detection. This work is being funded by HEA and IRCSET.

2. Integration of bio-electrochemical detection into microfluidic separation platforms

 The on-chip detection is a crucial part of the microfluidic analytical device influencing the performance of the whole system. This also includes sample pre-treatment and derivatisation. As a co-founder of the Irish Separation Science Cluster (SFI-SRC, 2008), I and my research team are working on the fusion of the (bio-)sensor technology with microfluidics. In particular, the sensors science and the microseparation science have common grounds such as surface chemistry, material science, receptor-ligand interactions, etc. Resulting hybrid devices are being designed for real-time analysis and monitoring of highly complex biological processes such as fermentation in the production of bio-pharmaceuticals, where the lack of some product standardization is the most obvious.
