Salzer is Full Professor of Analytic Chemistry at the TU Dresden, the largest university in Dresden, Germany. Salzer received his degree in Chemistry from Leipzig in 1961, and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia in 1971.
Salzer’s focus is on analytic chemistry, a subfield of chemistry concerned with the fundamental interactions of matter. An example of analytic chemistry is using a process like mass spectrometry to measure charged particles. This has been the focus of Salzer’s work—analyzing ion channels and other aspects of material using techniques like spectrometry. Salzer’s work also involves molecular analysis to assist in the early detection of diseases.
In 2015, Salzer received the Tribute of the Division Analytical Chemistry of the European Association for Chemical and Molecular Sciences.
