Daniel Cerveny
Daniel Cerveny is active in research areas that cover contamination of aquatic environments by wide range of extraneous substances originated from human activity. He is experienced in water and biota sampling procedures, solvent extraction, and targeted LC-MS instrumental analysis. Apart from describing the environmental contamination, he is also focused on identifying possible adverse effects induced in aquatic organisms as a result of anthropogenic pollution.

Presentation

"At the moment, I am interested in how residues of pharmaceuticals in rivers and lakes affect the natural behavior of aquatic organisms. I try to understand the combinatory effects of various pharmaceuticals on fish and aquatic invertebrates, because these organisms are frequently facing the cocktail of our medications in their natural environment. I also focus on physiological processes behind the observed effects of pharmaceuticals, especially the metabolic transformation of parental compounds and possible bioactivity of produced metabolites."
