Kacper A Walentynowicz


I have completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Wolverhampton (UK), where I did BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Science. During this time I got involved in brain tumour research at the Brain Tumour UK Research Centre led by Professor John Darling. Inspired by the molecular neuro-oncology research, I went on to complete MSc degree in Molecular Medicine at the University of Sheffield (UK) in 2013. Following completion of my Masters course, I was awarded Marie-Curie PhD Studentship (MSCA Fellow) at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology (PL) and Max Delbruck Center for Molecular Medicine (DE).

My collaborative PhD project at the Laboratory of Molecular Neurobiology is investigating epigenetic changes in glioma microenvironment.

Professional Activities:
