Working experience:
Dr. Gáspárová’s research activity is concerned with disorders of the nervous system which are induced by oxidative damage, aging, neurodegeneration, metabolic syndrome, and cognitive decline. A priority has been given to the field of electrophysiology of the rat hippocampus, thus to functional changes and biochemical, morphological, and behavioral alterations in various pathologies of the central nervous system. Dr. Gáspárová has studied the effects of pharmacological agents aimed at the reduction of pathological injury on cellular and tissue levels. She deals with the education of bachelor, master, and Ph.D. students.

Junior Research Fellow
Phone: 02/32295710
Dr. Jana Lomenová, PhD. is a young investigator at the Department of Biochemical Pharmacology of the IEPT SAS. After completing a PhD study at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava in 2009, she joined the research team of Dr. Horáková. Her experimental focus is oriented toward the study of the effects of natural compounds (especially flavonoids) and their derivatives on calcium regulation in pancreatic beta cells under conditions of endoplasmic reticulum stress induced by various mechanisms. She also investigates modulatory properties of flavonoids and their derivatives on the activity, expression and conformational changes of calcium regulating pumps, such as SERCA, under conditions of oxidative stress. In 2008, she obtained a scholarship for a short-term research stay in the University of Łodz in Poland. In 2009, she received Young Investigator Award for extraordinary scientific achievements in the field of Free Radical Research in SFRR-Europe meeting Rome, Italy. Since 2016, she is the Head of the Laboratory of Biochemistry and Cell Biology. Currently, she cooperates with Dr. Maliar, PhD. (Department of Biotechnologies, University of Ss. Cyril and Methodius in Trnava) on the research of new flavonoid complexes.

Mach, Mojmír RNDr., PhD.

Scientific Director
Phone: 02/32295718
Dr. Mach got his PhD in 2006 in the study field Pharmacology with the theme: Ethological approaches in pharmacology and toxicology – prenatal antioxidant supplementation during intrauterine hypoxia in rats and behavioral effects of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors in mice.
He was a member of the research team at Wright State University (OH, USA) studying the causes of Gulf War Syndrome on animal models. Currently, he works as a Head of the Department of Developmental and Behavioral Toxicology, interested in investigation of the neurobehavioral development of the rat’s offspring after intrauterine exposure to xenobiotics.
He is Member of the Executive Committee of the Slovak Toxicology Society SETOX and from 2010 to 2016 Executive Committee Member of EUROTOX. Since 2012 he is Deputy Director of the Institute of Experimental Pharmacology and Toxicology, SASc., and Executive Editor-In-Chief of the journal Interdisciplinary Toxicology.
He is Member of the Editorial Board of several journals, including Interdisciplinary Toxicology, Neuroendocrinology Letters and Activitas Nervosa Superior Rediviva.
Dr. Mach’s research program at the Institute is focused on behavioral changes after exposure to drugs and xenobiotics either during development or acutely during sensitive stages of postnatal life. The other area of his research centers on the screening of the potentially harmless compounds with use in psychopharmacology (i.e. pyridoindole derivatives).

  • Effect of oxidants and antioxidants on Ca2+-ATPase from sarcoplasmic reticulum (SERCA) – the main protein maintaining calcium homeostasis, in relation to age related diseases and its treatment. Study of SERCA activity, its kinetics, conformational alterations.
  • Study on the level of pancreatic beta cells line INS-1E as a model for diabetic complications: vitality, insulin release and cytosolic Ca2+ level in the presence of natural/synthetic agents. Possible link between impaired Ca2+-ATPase and vitality of INS-1E.

In 1979 Dr. Šoltés started at the Institute of Experimental Pharmacology as analytical chemist studying the drug fate in experimental organisms (rat, dog, human being). His DSc. in 1993 in analytical chemistry was based on the thesis: Liquid chromatographic separation methods for the analysis of biological materials. He acted several times as visiting professor in Paris and Frankfurt/Main where he investigated novel HPLC methods to determine the drug-protein reversible binding interactions.

The achievements of Dr. Šoltés are highly respected a broadly cited in the scientific literature. In the year 2008 he was awarded by the honor – Scientist of the Year.
Dr. Šoltés is the regular Member of ISHAS – the International Society for Hyaluronan Sciences. He is active as a member of the Editorial board of the journal Interdisciplinary Toxicology. Dr. Šoltés educated several students, PhD fellows, post-doctorands either from his homeland Slovakia or from foreign countries. Recently, in 2014, he co-edited a book: Balköse D., Horák D., Šoltés L.
