I graduated Biotechnology at the Poznan University of Life Science and Dietetics and Nutrition at the Poznan University of Medical Sciences. My research interests in the Department of Cancer Genetics PAS are involved in genome of Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma. In my work, I focus mainly on searching for the novel LSCC oncogenes. Recently (XII.2019-II.2020) I have been a participant of European Molecular Biology Organisation in Department of Otorhinolaryngology, University Hospital of Schleswig‐Holstein in Lübeck (Germany).
