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.
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
If the eyes are the mirror of the soul, then thanks to the translucent corneas, we can look deep into that soul. And thanks to the work of scientists from the IPC PAS we can look into the depths of the cornea itself. And that without touching it! All thanks to the introduction of an innovative method of holographic optical tomography.
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.
Reputable representatives from a sector of science (Professor Wilhelm Huck - Institute for Molecules and Materials, Radboud University, Nijmegen), business (Rafał Bator – Partner at Enterprise Investors, Justyna Garstecka – CEO and founder of Motherhood) and authorities (Mateusz Gaczyński – Deputy Director at the Ministry of Science and Higher Education) will be sitting on the CREATE Project Advisory Board. Professor Robert Hołyst from the Institute will be chairing the Advisory Board.
We encourage applicants for a position of a PhD student in the Physical Optics and Biophotonics Group – the successful candidate will carry out PhD studies under International Doctoral Studies at the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS, Warsaw, Poland.
Scientists are curious by nature and often look where they should not. From such looking, discoveries are born that literally broaden the horizons. Working jointly, researchers from Professor Wojtkowski’s team at IPC PAS, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Baltic Institute of Technology and their US collaborators from UC Irvine have recently managed to make practical use of infrared vision and by designing devices based on this phenomenon improve diagnosis of retinal diseases.
The Research Executive Agency announced that “Thirteen universities, technical institutes and private organisations from Member States with a high potential for research excellence, are to receive up to €2.5 million each in EU funding to boost their research capacity through the appointment of "ERA Chairs".
How light affects humans? How we perceive it and react to it? How one can conquer and harness the light to work for us and make our life longer, better. The ERA Chair holder and his team members talk about their light related fascinations, research, and new challenges.
We are very happy to announce that first results of the CREATE project were acknowledged by the European Commission as promising and described among the most recent success stories on DG Research portal.
"Keeping a closer eye on non-invasive microscopic bio-imaging" explains IPC approach to the ERA Chair project based on two pillars: excellent research and new research management policy.
