We wish you fruitful training abroad!
Jagoda, Ola and Łukasz received RSM funding
Research Support Module (RSM) is designed for Ph.D. students and participants of doctoral studies to support their research with funds from the Strategic Program Initiative for Excellence at Jagiellonian University (ID.UJ). We are very proud that in our group Jagoda, Ola and Łukasz received it. Congratulations!
Malgosia on the list of top scientists in the world published in 2023
Małgosia once again was included on list of the most influential scientists. She's among the 72 most frequently cited members of Jagiellonian University in 2022. The ranking was prepared by the University of Stanford, Elsevier publishing house and SciTech Strategies company. It assesses the overall impact of scientists based on bibliometrics.
Malgosia nominated for a best academic teacher in Kraków!
Recently Malgosia has been nominated by her students for a contest for a best academic teacher in Kraków organized by "Gazeta Krakowska" and "Dziennik Polski"! Voting starts on Tuesday, October 24, we encourage everyone to leave their vote!
Sylwia got an internship from NAWA 2023
Recently Sylwia received funding for a month-length research scholarship at University of Belgrade from Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange! The scholarship started this month, during her stay she will be studying various drugs used in oncology.
Ania received funding from Young Labs 3 program
Recently our post-doc Ania received funding from Young Labs 3 call in the Anthropocene PRA under the strategic programme Excellence Initiative at the Jagiellonian University! The tile of her project is "Tracking fatty acids metabolism of leukemic cells using Raman spectroscopy".
Małgosia is a chair of the workshop “Women in Photonics“, Jena, Germany, 26-30 November, 2023
We are pleased to informed that Małgosia was selected to chair the workshop “Women in Photonics“! The workshop will be held at Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena from 26 to 30 November 2023
The workshop “Women in Photonics“ aims at connecting excellent female scientists at the beginning of their career with experts in photonics holding leading positions at research institutions and companies. The focus of the workshop will be on:
- Optical health technologies – diagnosis, monitoring, therapy
- biomedical microscopy, bio-analytical methods, medical chip systems
- Biophotonics such as vibrational spectroscopy, fluorescence, OCT, PAT, etc.
The workshop addresses female postdocs and PhD students working in these research areas, who want to present their own work and build up new networks. Participants will have the opportunity to exchange with experienced scientists from academia and industry and jointly develop strategies for a successful professional career.
First internship from NAWA 2023
From 13th to 26th May 2023 Ania P. and Ola B-D completed a 2-week internship at Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz-IPHT), Jena, Germany, in Prof. Jurgen Popp group, the partner from NAWA 2023 project. The aim of the internship was to expand their knowledge about nonlinear techniques: coherent anti-stokes Raman scattering (CARS) and fluorescence-lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM). During their stay, they managed to learn about those techniques from the practical side, making cell measurements, which are part of the OPUS15 project's research.
From 24th to 26th Professor Jurgen Popp's group was also visited by Krzysztof, who had the opportunity to see their laboratories and discuss the technical aspects of the equipment used by the team.
The internship was financed by the Opus15 Project (UMO-2018/29/B/ST4/00335 to MB) and NAWA (Bilateral exchange program between Poland and Germany 2023 to MB).
Ada's internship at the University of Valencia
From 24th of February to 10th of March 2023 Ada completed 2 weeks internships at University of Valencia (Spain) under supervision of dr David Perez-Guaita. The aim of the internship was to expand knowledge on multivariate data analysis. The internships were founded by Excellence Initiative at the Jagiellonian University ("ID.UJ") VISIBILITY & MOBILITY MODULE
Guest internship by Dr Monika Kopeć from Lodz University of Technology
On February 1-27, our team had the pleasure of hosting Dr Monika Kopeć, a member of Prof. dr hab. Halina Abramczyk group from the Lodz University of Technology. During the internship, Dr. Monika carried out Raman imaging of brain cancer cell cultures incubated with an oncological drug administered in various concentrations. In addition, Dr Monika had the opportunity to participate in measurements using various research techniques and in an analysis of the results with the use of different analytical methods. Both for Dr Monika and for us, it was a very fruitful time during which we had the chance to exchange experiences and knowledge.
