Prof. Dr. Boris Mizaikoff

Boris Mizaikoff, born in 1965, received his doctorate in analytical chemistry from the Vienna University of Technology (Austria) in 1996 and qualified as a professor with tenure at the Vienna University of Technology in 2000. Subsequently, he worked at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, USA) as a faculty member at the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, where he headed the Applied Sensors Laboratory (ASL). Since 2007 he has held a chair at Ulm University heading the Institute of Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry. He has authored or co-authored more than 350 peer-reviewed publications, 18 patents and numerous invited contributions at scientific conferences. In his spare time he is a passionate ultralong distance trail runner!


“The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you” (B.B. King)  


As part of his extensive scientific activities Professor Mizaikoff is as a member of the editorial board of renowned international journals (IEEE Sensors Journal, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry or Scientific Reports) or serves as an associate editor (2009–2018 Analyst, Royal Chemical Society, RCS; since 2018 Analytical Chemistry, American Chemical Society, ACS). He is a reviewer for numerous international journals and organizations, including the EU, DFG, and NIH. He is also active in steering and program committees and as a chairman of relevant international conferences such as the IEEE Sensors Conference, Europt(r)ode or SPIE Photonics West.


Professor Mizaikoff has received numerous awards for his work, including the Erwin Schrödinger Award of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (1997), the Meggers Award of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (2004), the Robert Kellner Lecture Award of the Division of Analytical Chemistry, Eu-ChemS (2009), the Fresenius Lecture of the Society of German Chemists (GDCh) in 2014, or the RSC Emerging Technologies Award of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) in 2016. In 2017, he received the University/Industry Cooperation Award of Ulm University. In 2019, he was appointed Fellow of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy.


His research interests include optical chem/bio sensors, mid-infrared photonics, tailored (bio)molecular recognition interfaces, molecularly imprinted materials, system miniaturization and integration, and multifunctional (nano)analytical techniques with applications in environmental analysis, process monitoring and biomedical diagnostics.

    State of 'hibernation' keeps haematopoietic stem cells young

    All tissues age. The blood-forming system is especially affected by ageing processes. Haematopoietic stem cells, the precursors to blood and immune cells, age exceptionally fast, losing the ability to divide and regenerate. This weakens the immune system and increases the risk of blood canc ... more

    Magnetic nanoparticles with ionic liquids for water purification

    In many parts of the world, access to clean drinking water is far from certain. Filtration of large volumes of water, however, is slow and impractical. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, scientists have introduced a new water purification method based on magnetic nanoparticles coated with a ... more
