I am a graduate of Master Degree in Biotechnology at Poznań University of Life Sciences. Since October 2016 I am a PhD student in Department of Molecular and Clinical Genetics. My research is focused on analysis of miRNA expression profile in childhood T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) and functional studies of influence of inhibition and mimicry of chosen miRNA on leukemia cells cultures.
