Personal Statement

I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Lodz, Poland and then secured a European Union scholarship to carry my postgraduate studies in the UK. I completed a PhD in the Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine at the University of Leeds on the role of post-translational modifications in cancer development in 2013. During my PhD I received funding from the European Union to train in ubiquitination at Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Consequently, I decided to further develop my skills in this field and moved to the Northern Institute for Cancer Research (Newcastle) to study the role of deubiquitination in cancer progression. Following successful completion of my Post-Doctoral project I received a Newcastle University Fellowship and moved to the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biosciences to start my group working on re-expression of meiotic genes in cancer in 2017. In 2018 I moved my lab to the Institute for Integrative Biology in Liverpool for a Tenure Track Research Fellowship.
