Dr. Szymon Hryhorowicz began his work at the Department of Nucleic Acids function at the end of 2014. He has graduate interdisciplinary doctoral studies in the NanoBioMedical Centre, at the Department of Physics at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan. During his PhD studies he  took a six-month internship in Max Delbrueck Center in Berlin.

Dr Szymon Hryhorowicz is focusing on nucleic acids function analysis, cancer genetics, genomics, next-generation sequencing, pyrosequencing, gene expression analysis, mutation analysis  and DNA sequence analysis methodology.
