Research Overview

Due to her interest in the interdisciplinary research between Medicine/Dentsitry and Engineering she developed her scientific experience in biomaterials for medical application. She moved to Denmark to take Research Assistant position in the FP6 EU project, NanoCMM, which led to her PhD at the University of Copenhagen in nanotechnology. She also obtained second PhD in Poland in mechanical testing of biomaterials. Afterwards she continue as a post-doc in Sweden at the University of Gotheborg and later on as Marie Curie-Sklodowska Postdoctoral Fellow at the Charite Medical University in Berlin, Germany where she worked on applications of nanotechnology in implantology and bone regeneration. Her recent scientific findings conducted with University of Bergen, Norway showed great potential for bone regeneration and stem cell therapy. Her future research goals focus on developing an alternative materials for autogenous bone grafts in ageing and compromised patients.
