Working visit to University of Gdansk and Medical University Gdansk

The main goal of the visit was to present the research activity of the Physical Optics and Biophotonics Group to the researchers from Medical University Gdansk and University of Gdansk, get to know their scope of research and search for potential areas of cooperation and common research topics between both the institutions.

Maciej Wojtkowski gave a lecture titled „From organs to cells - minimally invasive 3D imaging” at the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Gdansk, briefly presenting main activities in his group and their main interests. Besides the lecture, this trip included a visit to the laboratories at the University of Gdansk and Medical University Gdansk, where prof. Wojtkowski had an opportunity to meet and exchange research ideas with prof. Sylwia Rodziewicz-Motowidło, Head of Department of Biomedical Chemistry (University of Gdansk) and dr hab. med. Michał Pikuła, Chairman of the Gdansk Branch of the Polish Society of Experimental and Clinical Immunology (Medical University Gdansk).

Visit to University of Gdansk and Medical University Gdansk was a great basis for establishing future cooperation and an opportunity providing common ground for a joint research, especially taking in consideration the main research areas at the visited laboratories, like stem cell biology, tissue regeneration (human and animal tissue), breeding and analyzing skin cells, adipose tissue and lymphocytes (gene expression, flow cytometry).
