A graduate of Laboratory Medicine, Poznan University of Medical Sciences. The theme of her master thesis was evaluation of the effect of cisplatin in combination with a modulator of autophagy on glioblastoma multiforme cells. Currently, the areas of interest include: new sequence variants in patients diagnosed with salivary gland tumors, changes in genome segregating with keratoconus phenotype and utility of circulating cell-free DNA as a biomarker.
Single nucleotide polymorhism rs1164913 associated with CC genotype in miR-196a2 is overrepresented in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma, but not in salivary gland tumors in Polish patients.
