We are proud to announce that Dr Jakub Mieczkowski has received a grant from the National Science Centre called 'POLONEZ' (eng. Polonaise). This grant is directed towards researchers of Polish origin coming back to Poland after long research career abroad.
The funding for the project entitled 'Identification of epigenetic mechanisms contributing to glioma drug resistance' reaches almost 1 MILION PLN.

'The aim of this project is to identify epigenetic characteristics of glioblastoma stem-like cells and regulatory networks that contribute to tumor drug resistance and reoccurrence. First, epigenetic characteristics and gene expression levels will be profiled in glioblastoma stem-like cells and differentiated cells derived from them'

Further description of the project can be found in the pdf file attached.

We have celebrated this great news by having a small pizza party! Congratulations to Dr Mieczkowski and we wish fruitful results!
