picture of OlaOla 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.
