Vlastimil Jirasko is a postdoctoral fellow researcher at ETH Zurich in the LBB group of Prof Vörös. He focuses on the assay development of rapid antigen test detecting SARS-CoV-2 viral proteins. He obtained his PhD in the field of virology in the laboratory of Molecular Virology at Heidelberg University studying the assembly of infectious viral particles of the Hepatitis C virus. He gained further expertise in protein biochemistry during his assignment at the laboratory of solid-state NMR at ETH Zurich, where he optimized sample preparation of viral membrane proteins in liposomes for analysis by proton detected magic angle spinning solid-state NMR.
