Background

I am BBSRC DTP funded student and am undertaking research into Metabolic profiling of mammalian cells – towards single cell characterization. The project will have an industrial biotechnology focus and the aim of it is to develop new techniques, including ToF-SIMS and MALDI-MS, for analyzing metabolites of mammalian cells.

After graduation from the AHE Centre of Postgraduate Education and University of Lodz with a Masters Degree in Medical Biophysics and Bioinformatics, where I had an opportunity to participate in many scientific and social events, became a member of a Polish Fellowship of Biochemistry as well as took part in International Student Exchange, I started to work for biopharmaceutical company.

For one year I worked for a R&D MABION SA where I had a chance to acknowledge analytical work in GLP environment for therapeutic monoclonal antibody analysis and method validation as well as take part in analytical method development for a clinical programme and production process quality control. Additionally, I was responsible for gaining detailed documentation where rules under GLP system were applied.

I am more than happy to take part in the project and work in international environment where I can improve my research activity and bring new insight to science.
