Alicja Rabiasz, MSc – is a graduate of Master Degree in Biology (molecular biology specialization) at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. Since February 2017 she is a PhD student in Department of Molecluar and Clinical Genetics.

Scientific interests of Alicja include motile cilia dysfunction, molecular basis of rare genetic disease – primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) and elucidation of the role of novel genes potentially involved in the PCD pathogenesis using RNA interference method (RNAi) in ciliated flatworm (Schmidtea mediterranea).
