Łukasz Kornszewski (member of the prof.Wojtowski group) attended MEDmeetsTECH conference which focused on bringing together Polish medical, financial and technological professionals in order to help them understand their needs and learn about solutions offered by the others.
Dawid Borycki participated in the Code Europe Spring 2018 conference. The aim of this visit was to give two talks. Titles and short abstracts of these presentations are given below. Presentations were recorded by the organizer and will be published on their YouTube channel.
Polish physical chemistry is joining forces with Chinese medical and molecular biology and biochemistry. In Tianjin an agreement has been signed on long-term cooperation between the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences and Nankai University, one of the highest ranked research units in China.
Strengthening internal integration aimed at joint research projects is among main goals of the CREATE project. For this reason, Professor Wojtkowski meets research groups from IPC to select synergetic teams, i.e. teams willing to closely cooperate with the ERA Chair holder. This action is expected to increase influence of the ERA Chair holder on IPC and quality of its studies.
Visit Dawid Borycki in Neurophotonics Lab, Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of California, Davis.
Noninvasive optical imaging in turbid media with microscopic resolution has multiple promising applications. For instance, such imaging can be used to visualize breast tumors to early detect and characterize any disorders and thus significantly increase the cure rate (because X-ray mammography cannot identify tumors at their early stage of development).
Professor Wojtkowski, the ERA Chair holder, established at IPC a new specialized laboratory. The laboratory will serve researchers carrying out studies on the boarder of biology/medicine, chemistry, and physics
Advanced methods of optical imaging will be the main topic of research of the Department of Physical Chemistry of Biological Systems, cominginto being at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academyof Sciences under the prestigious European ERA Chairs grant.
Prof. Maciej Wojtkowski, physicist, head of the Physical Chemistry of Biological Systems Department currently coming into being at the Institute of Physical Chemistry in Warsaw and winner of the prestigious European ERA Chairs grant talks to science journalist Jarek Chrostowski.
On the 3rd of October, 2016 the employees of the Institute holding a title of professor or a degree of habilitated doctor were selecting their representative for the Scientific Council. By decision of the majority, Professor Maciej Wojtkowski – the ERA Chair Holder was elected.
