I am a graduate of Master Degree in Biotechnology at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan. I started cooperation with the Institute of Human Genetics PAS in the Department of Reproductive Biology and Stem Cells in 2009. From the beginning, my interest focused on the process of spermatogenesis and cell differentiation, including stem cells. I had the opportunity to participate in several projects related to microarrays to identify genes specifically dedicate for the molecular diagnosis of male infertility; as well as stem cell research in the context of myocardial regenerative therapy.
