Study & working visits
On September 10, 2020, Piotr Węgrzyn visited Specialized Ophthalmic Center – Oculomedica clinic in Bydgoszcz. The clinic was established in 2010 on the basis of doctors' ophthalmic offices existing in Bydgoszcz. for many years. In addition to modern ophthalmological diagnostics, the clinic offers a wide range of specialist and treatment rooms, where also perform qualifications for surgical procedures.
Izabela Kamińska, a member of a Photochemistry and Spectroscopy Department (IPC), visited the Ludwig Maximilians-Universität München . The major aim of the research visit in the group of Prof. Tinnefeld was further development of the biosensor based on DNA origami and graphene for viral DNA detection, as well as first test measurements with the DNA nanostructure immobilized on graphene for the investigation of the properties of DNA double helix using fluorescence correlation spectroscopy.
Magdalena Wiloch, a postdoc in a group led by dr hab. Martin Jönsson-Niedziółka (IPC), visited the Bernal Institute, University of Limerick. Research internship under the CREATE program in a group led by prof. Micheal Scanlon gave her the opportunity to learn the technique of AC voltammetry.
Witold Postek, Ph.D., visited the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in Cambridge, MA in the USA for three weeks. The goal of the visit was to learn a novel droplet-based method developed at the Broad Institute. The method uses three fluorescent dyes in a range of concentrations.
Jakub Bogusławski visited the Centre for Translational Vision Research, the University of California Irvine in Irvine, CA. The scientific aim of this visit was to continue the development of two-photon excited fluorescence scanning laser ophthalmoscope (TPEF SLO) for eye imaging.
On 14 – 15 Nov. 2019, Jadwiga Milkiewicz visited the laboratory at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. The main goal of this visit was to acquaint with the new two-photon microperimetry
On November 22, 2019 Jadwiga Milkiewicz took part in preclinical tests in Oculomedica in Bydgoszcz. Thanks to this visit she became more familiar with the procedures and difficulties related to preclinical tests. The main goal of the research was to compare the one-photon and two-photon vision for patients with cataracts, using an apparatus constructed by dr Katarzyna Komar.
Jakub Bogusławski visited the Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics at AGH University of Science and Technology. The aim of this trip was to fabricate a saturable absorber based on antimony telluride on the surface of active Tm: KLuW waveguide.
Łukasz Kornaszewski, Jakub Bogusławski and Piotr Ciąćka, POB group members, visited the group collaborators in the field of human two-photon vision studies. Researchers wanted to examine thoroughly the experimental setup which is complicated and on high level of automation.
