I am a scientific researcher with over 11 years of practical experience in molecular biology, focusing on aging and cancer research.
In 2010, I finished Biotechnology at the University in Szczecin and Molecular Biology postgraduate education at Jagiellonian University in Cracow. During my studies, I was conducting research at the Animal Physiology Faculty and in a diagnostic laboratory of a Military Hospital.
I have started my professional career as a Biologist at the Institute of Human Genetics in Poznan for one year, where I have investigated stem cells aging. Following this, I worked six years as a researcher and didactic assistant in the Medical Centre of Postgraduate Education (Warsaw), where I received my Ph.D. in Medical Sciences and Medical Biology. Moreover, I was leading there my Preludium grant and participated in other projects focusing on the molecular biology of thyroid and breast tumors.
As a post-doc, I worked in the Institute of New Technologies (Warsaw, Poland), Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences (Split, Croatia), and in the Institute of Molecular Medicine, Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University (Moscow, Russia). During this time, I studied mRNA-cap analogs used in mRNA vaccine, aging processes, carbonylation, and cancer biology. I participated in the international grants and was involved in the patent of designing new inhibitors against lysosomal cathepsins. In addition, I have training in Drug Development and Pharmaceutical R&D Business Framework, Quality Auditor Management System ISO 9001:2008, bio-printing, and Zebrafish in vivo model.
In January 2022, I started my work as a scientific specialist at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences under the mentorship of Dr. Jan Guzowski. My project is “Printing self-organizing droplets: from the physical foundations of self-organization to applications in cell encapsulation and high-throughput screening”.
