A graduate of Biotechnology, speciality in Genetic Diagnostic at the University of Life Science in Poznan. Joined the IHG PAS in August 2015, and has been employed at the Department of Cancer Genetics since February 2017. Involved in a research project concerning on the analysis of panel of genes predisposing to the occurance of myelodysplastic syndromes and the prognostic use of genomic changes in patients with this malignance. In addition, the area of interest include the application of free circulated tumor DNA as a biomarker in patients with head and neck cancer.
DIAPH2 alterations increase cellular motility and may contribute to the metastatic potential of laryngeal squamous carcinoma.
