C.V. of Dr. Tomasz Tuzimski Department of Physical Chemistry Chair of Chemistry Faculty of Pharmacy with Medical Analytics Division Medical University of Lublin Staszica 6, 20-081 Lublin E-mail: email@example.com Dr. Tomasz Tuzimski born on 17th December 1971. He studied in the Faculty of Pharmacy of Medical University of Lublin in 1995 and graduated in 1995. 2nd October 1995 started work in Department of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry with Laboratory of Physical Chemistry of Medical University of Lublin as assistant scientifically-didactic. He obtained the first degree of specialization in pharmacy in 1998. Dr. Tuzimski was rewarded as co-authors of a handbook for students â€œAnalytical Chemistryâ€ (ed., R. Kocjan, PZWL, 2000 and 2002, in Polish) by Ministry of Health of the Polish Republic (team prize). On 2nd January 2002 Dr. Tuzimski defended his doctoral thesis (â€œChemometric characterization of thin-layer chromatographic systems for the analysis of pesticidesâ€, promoter of doctoral dissertation: Professor dr. h.c. Edward SoczewiÅ„ski) and 30th January 2002 obtained doctoral degree (Ph.D from the Faculty of Pharmacy, Medical University of Lublin). Dr. Tuzimski was rewarded for achievements in field of study by chromatographic methods in analytical chemistry of pesticides, series of five publications and monograph T. Tuzimski, E. SoczewiÅ„ski, Retention and Selectivity of Liquid-Solid Chromatographic Systems for the Analysis of Pesticides (Retention Database) in Problems of Science, Teaching and Therapy. Medical University of Lublin, Poland, No 12, Lublin, October 2002, Medical University of Lublin: Lublin, 219 pp. (limited number available on request by email: firstname.lastname@example.org) by Ministry of Health (individual prize). 2nd February 2004 he was designated lecturer in Department of Physical Chemistry, Chair of Chemistry, Medical University of Lublin. Dr. Tuzimski was invited by Professor Szabolcs Nyiredy to three-month practice in Research Institute for Medicinal Plants in BudakalÃ¡sz (Hungary). The investigation were financially supported by the Educational Exchange Programme between Hungary and Poland â€“ Hungarian Scholarship Board (No. MÃ–B 2-13-1-44-3554/2005). He actively participated in scientific symposia, where he presented his research results as oral presentations and 60 poster presentations on 20 international meetings (series symposia â€žPlanar Chromatographyâ€ and â€žBalaton Symposiumâ€ on Hungary, â€ž100 Years of Chromatographyâ€ in Moscow, 4th European Conference on Pesticides and Related Organic Micropollutants in the Environment. 10th Symposium on Chemistry and Fate of Modern Pesticides. AlmerÃa, Spain, 32th International Symposium on High Performance Liquid Phase Separations and Related Techniques, HPLC 2008, Baltimore, USA) and 17 national scientific symposia. Dr. Tuzimski so far published 39 research papers (including 18 individual papers) in journals of high level of impact factors (total IF = 47.294). Besides above-mentioned monograph, Dr. Tuzimski is authors of chapter: Use of planar chromatography in pesticide residue analysisâ€™ in: Handbook of pesticides : methods of pesticide residues analysis. Edited by Leo M.L. Nollet and Hamir Singh Rathore, Boca Raton 2010, CRC Press Taylor & Francis Group, 187-264 and chapter: Basic Principles of Planar Chromatography and its potential for hyphenated techniques, in M. Srivastava (ed.), HPTLC: Fast Separation Technique with Excellent Hyphenation, Chapter 14, Springer, 2010, (in press). I am co-author of chapter: T.H. Dzido, T. Tuzimski, Chambers, Sample Application and Chromatogram Development in: â€œThin-Layer Chromatography in Phytochemistryâ€ M. Waksmundzka-Hajnos, J. Sherma, T. Kowalska (eds), Boca Raton 2008, CRC Press Taylor & Francis Group, 119-174. Dr. Tuzimski is recipient of grants from Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education: â€œOptimization of chromatographic systems for analysis of complex mixtures of pesticidesâ€ (No 3T09A 129 29, 2005-2008) for the study and procedure implementation of new the analysis of pesticides in original samples (e.g., water, medicinal herbs) with application of modern analytical methods (SPE-TLC-DAD and SPE-HPLC-DAD) and No N N204 167136 2009-2011 for the study and procedure implementation of the analysis of pesticides in environmental samples with application of chromatographic methods combined with diode array scanning densitometry (e.g., New Procedure for Analysis of Complex Mixtures by use of Multidimensional Planar Chromatography in Combination with Diode-Array Scanning Densitometry and High-Performance Liquid Chromatography Coupled with Diode-Array Detection, Journal of Planar Chromatography â€“ Modern TLC 23 (3) (2010) 184-189). Dr. Tuzimski reviewed 60 research manuscripts (Journal of Chromatography A, Journal of Chromatography B, Journal of Separation Science, Journal of Chromatographic Science, Journal of AOAC Int., Journal of Planar Chromatography â€“ Modern TLC). He taught analytical and physical chemistry exercises with a second-year students of the Faculty of Pharmacy. He also was instructor in post graduate chromatographic courses for scientific research from Polish universities and workers from industry. He was promoter of research work of 2 masters of pharmacy and supervised the research work of 6 masters of pharmacy. He is member of Polish Pharmaceutical Society.
