Tomas Bertok, PhD. student

bertokTomas Bertok received his BSc. and MSc. degrees in biotechnology at the Slovak University of Technology in 2008 and 2010, respectively. He is currently a Ph.D. student at the Institute of Chemistry, Slovak Academy of Sciences. He is a winner of the Slovak scientific competition for students in the category Chemical and Food Technology – section Biosynthesis and Transformation of Metabolites in the 2009. He is the first author of 6 CC publications and his work currently includes preparation of nanostructured interfaces, protein immobilization and biorecognition, electrochemical and optical biosensors and bioanalytical methods and imaging.
