Biography

I graduated in 2007 from the Warsaw University, Faculty of Biology, specializing in Biotechnology. In 2007-2012 I did my PhD studies at the Laboratory of Bioinformatics and Protein Engineering in the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology. In 2012-2014, I worked as a scientist at the Laboratory of Biology in the R&D Department of Adamed Group. In 2015 I joined Prof. Kaminska’s laboratory, were currently I work on the project called ‘GLIATOR’, which is focused on developing a new, complex and highly specific therapy for glioblastoma.
