zdjęcie wizerunku KamilliKamilla's research interests began with modeling the absorption properties of molecular crystals at the Department of Theoretical Chemistry. She has been continuing research on the border of "theory and experience" in vibrational spectroscopy since doctoral studies, with particular emphasis on the coordination relationships of bioligands. She defended her PhD in chemistry in 2003 with the work "Application of molecular spectroscopy methods to determine the structures of oximes and their complex compounds with Ni (II) and Cu (II) ions". The ongoing research projects concern the interaction of molecules of bio / medical importance with the Ag and Au (SERS) surface as well as Raman mapping and IR imaging of biological material and wall painting.

zdjęcie wizerunku MartyMarta obtained a master's degree in 2012 (Jagiellonian University), an engineer in 2013 (AGH), and in 2017 she obtained a PhD in chemistry with honors on the basis of the thesis: "Multiparameter imaging of chemical changes in mouse models of civilization diseases" (Faculty of Chemistry, Jagiellonian University). Currently he is implementing the SONATINA1 project (National Science Center). Marta's latest research focuses on in situ measurements of endothelial cells in isolated functional blood vessels, and changes in them under the influence of pro-inflammatory factors. As part of the project, Marta uses the Raman spectroscopy technique (both high-resolution Raman imaging and measurements using a fiber optic probe) and atomic force microscopy.

Grzegorz received his MSc degree in chemistry in 2014 and PhD degree in 2018 (both with the award of distinction), from the Faculty of Chemistry, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, under the guidance of Prof. Malgorzata Baranska. In his PhD dissertation he developed new methods of ROA signal induction and enhancement, e.g. AIRROA (Aggregation-Induced Resonance Raman Optical Activity). During his postdoctoral fellowship he collaborated with Prof. Petr Bouř from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry, Prague, Czech Republic. Currently he is a researcher in the Jagiellonian Centre for Experimental Therapeutics (JCET), Jagiellonian University, where he is a principal investigator of the NCN OPUS grant. His research focuses on computational and spectroscopic studies of biomolecular systems, by means of chiroptical methods: ROA, ECD, VCD, as well as development of resonance enhancement methods in ROA.
