MSc. Ewelina Wiercigroch
firstname.lastname@example.org, +48 12 686 2391; room C3-23Ewelina graduated with MSc in 2014 from the Faculty of Chemistry UJ. In her master`s thesis she focused on evaluation of capacity of FTIR microspectroscopy in the diagnosis of civilisation diseases caused by environmental factors (diabetes and breast cancer with metastasis to lungs). This included the determination of overall biochemical changes and the identification of spectral markers indicating disease. After graduating, she join the team where she continue research on IR spectroscopy and start exploring issue related with Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS).

MSc. Aleksandra Borek - Dorosz
firstname.lastname@example.org, +48 12 686 2402; room C3-34Ola obtained a master's degree in 2018 at the Faculty of Chemistry of the Jagiellonian University. In her work she focused on receiving and initial characterization of new chitosan-based hydrogels with the possibility of their application on the surface of the skin. For this purpose, a series of syntheses were carried out using four different types of gelling agents and, additionally, the synthesized hydrogels were modified with the aid of various substances having nurturing and / or curative properties. The obtained hydrogels were tested using infrared absorption spectroscopy (FT-IR). During doctoral studies, Ola will focus on the characteristics of phenotype of the stimulated EOL-1 and EOL-1 differentiated in the direction of eosinophilic phenotype production, for this purpose she will use raman spectroscopy.
MSc. Adriana Adamczyk
email@example.com, +48 12 686 2393; room C3-25Ada finished Bachelor of Science in chemistry in 2017 at the Department of Chemistry, Jagiellonian University. She worked under the supervision of Professor Małgorzata Baranska and investigated wide range of applications for biological samples analysis based on spectroscopic techniques such as Infrared and Raman spectroscopies. Working there has encouraged her to continue studies in the field of spectroscopic methods development. In 2017, Ada joined the Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry (ASC) European Erasmus Mundus Master programme where continued her master studies at University of Lille1, France and University of Helsinki, Finland. During doctoral studies Ada will focus on the application of Raman spectroscopy in Leukemia diagnostics.
MSc. Karolina Augustyniak
firstname.lastname@example.org, +48 12 686 2402; room C3-34
Karolina received her Master degree in 2020 at the Faculty of Chemistry, Jagiellonian University, however her interest in spectroscopic techniques started much earlier. The aim of her master thesis focused on the high definition FTIR imaging and its application in visualization of characteristic morphological lungs structures and the pathological alternations. The research included also tracking the extracellular matrix remodeling during breast cancer metastasis process. In 2019, Karolina became a laureate of the 8th edition of the ministerial program - Diamond Grant. The research showing FTIR and Raman imaging as a novel analytical strategy in tracking the mesenchymal stem cells differentiation process will be the basis of her PhD thesis
