On 8th of November to 18th of December, 2017, Ewelina Bik has done an internship in the group of prof. Yukihiro Ozaki at Kwansei Gakuin University (Japan). Under the supervision of Dr. Mika Ishigaki, she became familiarized with near-infrared imaging and Raman measurements.
December 8th: Christmas Meeting of Raman Imaging Group is behind us, in a nice atmosphere and with good music. We send best Christmas wishes and good energy (warm radiation from the IR range) to all Friends of our Team!
The group mambers take care of thier form ... each one separately but also together: we started a group running!
Kasia Marzec and Jakub got the prizes for the best poster presentations at the 25th Krakow Conference on Endothelium (Kraków, Poland, 20-21.10.2017).
Prof. Timothy A. Keiderling from University of Illinois (Chicago, USA) gave a lecture "Protein folding from the ground up. Thermodynamic and kinteic studies of peptides and proteins with increasing complexity" on 4th of October.
We are pleased to announce that in September 2017 the Faculty of Chemistry of the Jagiellonian University moved to a new bulding, which is currently located on the Campus of the 600th Anniversary of the Jagiellonian University Revival, at Gronostajowa Street 2 in Krakow. Below you will find photos of the new Raman Imaging Group laboratory. More pictures of the new Faculty of Chemistry can be found here.
Summer Seminar of Raman Imaging Group took place in Rabka-Zdroj from 25th to 26th June 2017. For the sake of the health of participants and our endothelium one of the elements of the seminar was the hiking to Maciejowa and Stare Wierchy mountain (Gorce) and another day to Lubon Wielki mountain (Beskid Wyspowy).
From 21th May to 17th June 2017 Szymon held an internship in Manchester Institute of Biotechnology, University of Manchester, Manchester (UK), in the group of prof. Peter Gardner. The aim of the internship was learning about aplications of advanced analyse methods of spectroscopic data with the use of MATLAB.
Malgosia was nominated for the Student's Friend Award 2017. The idea of the event was born out of the need to reward people working at the Jagiellonian University for their pro-student attitude, and taking care of their development and acquiring knowledge and skills.
Rafaella Ferreira Fernandes has been awarded a scholarship from the CAPES Foundation, an agency under the Ministry of Education of Brazil, in order to conduct part of his doctoral research as a Visiting Student in the Raman Imaging Group. Her proposal involves the use of Raman spectroscopy as a powerful tool to investigate biological systems since the identification of specific molecules has significantly improved the understanding of important biochemical processes. Rafaella will work with us for 10 months.
From 30th to 31th March 2017 we hosted prof. Tatsuyuki Yamamoto (Faculty of Life and Environmental Science, Shimane University, Japonia) together with his wife Miyuki. Professor gave a lecture in JCET and participated in a seminar where we discussed the results and plans for further cooperation.
In the elections held in February Malgosia was elected director of the International Society for Clinical Spectroscopy(CLIRSPEC). CLIRSPEC is a non-profit organisation, constituted in 2015. The Society exists to act as a platform for those individuals, teams and organisations wishing to promote the translation of spectroscopy into the clinical environment, for the general benefit of patients; for example, to improve patient diagnosis and prognosis. The company offers Summer School for young scientist and students.
Prof. Juergen Popp from Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology, Institute of Physical Chemistry & Abbe-Center of Photonics, Friedrich-Schiller University (Jena, Germany) gave a lecture “Raman spectroscopy – translational approaches for routine clinical applications” in JCET on 20th of January.
