In paralell with the leading of the group, Andras Guttman leads the Horváth Csaba Memorial Laboratory of Bioseparation Sciences (University of Debrecen, Hungary) established with the help of his Marie Curie Chair from the European Commission to pursue basic research in the field of bioseparation sciences with the aim to develop and implement high performance bioanalytical techniques for proteomics and glycomics based biomarker discovery using single- and multi-dimensional separation methods. Dr Guttman is an adjunct professor at the Barnett Institute (Northeastern University, Boston, USA). Prior to forming HLBS, Dr. Guttman held appointments at Diversa Corporation (San Diego, CA) implementing bioindustrial scale carbohydrate analysis methods; at the Torrey Mesa Research Institute (La Jolla, CA) applying microfluidics methods to large scale genotyping; Genetic BioSystems (San Diego, CA), working on a novel microgel electrophoresis platform; and at Beckman Coulter (Fullerton, CA) developing capillary electrophoresis kits. In his postdoctoral work at the Barnett Institute (Boston, MA), he conducted basic research in the field of capillary gel electrophoresis. He has more than 280 scientific publications, 32 book chapters, edited several textbooks and holds 19 patents. He is the president of the ACS-HU chapter, a Board member of CASSS, and on the editorial boards of numerous international scientific journals. Dr. Guttman graduated from the Veszprem University (Hungary) in chemical engineering, where he also received his doctoral degree.
