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 Research Council. By decision of the majority, Professor Maciej Wojtkowski – the ERA Chair Holder was elected.
The aim of this visit was to participate in the 159th seminar of the International Center of Biocybernetics: Optics in Neuromonitoring, where Dawid Borycki delivered the talk entitled as: Monitoring time-of-flight-resolved temporal dynamics of optical field using interferometric near-infrared spectroscopy (iNIRS).
The lab visit under CREATE project took place at the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry, in the group of Prof. Petra Schwille. During the two-week stay Łukasz Piątkowski worked together with Dr Henri Franquelim, a senior Postdoc specialized in studies of mechanical properties of lipid bilayers.
