I am a graduate of Biotechnology at the Faculty of Chemistry of Warsaw University of Technology (specialization in Industrial Biotechnology). The first steps in the scientific world I put under the supervision of Professor Andrzej Kołtuniewicz, PhD, DSc. As a part of my BSc Thesis, I undertook theoretical considerations on the use of membrane chromatography in Biotechnology. The consequence was research the process of separation of lysozyme from hen egg white using membrane chromatography in the framework of my MA thesis

Research on the separation process of lysozyme has changed the direction of my interest towards the use of the antibacterial activity of this enzyme for biomedical applications, which in the future will increase the quality of life of patients in need. For this reason, in 2012, I undertook PhD studies at the Faculty of Chemical and Process Engineering of Warsaw University of Technology and started cooperation with the Laboratory of Biomedical Engineering.

The subjects of research:

  • Bifunctional coatings for urological catheters
  • Probiotic hydrogels for biomedical applications
  • Modification of lysozyme to enhance its antimicrobial properties against Gram-negative bacteria
  • Separation of lysozyme from hen egg white using membrane chromatography

Work with students:

  • Laboratory of Bioprocess (Industrial Biotechnology, II degree studies)
  • Separation Processes in Biotechnology – laboratory (Industrial Biotechnology, II degree studies)

Thesis advisor:

  1. Artificial Urinary Bladder model to study of the bacterial biofilm on the surface of urological catheters, Żukowska M., MA thesis, in progress.
  2. Antibacterial coating of urological catheters, Przybysz D., MA thesis, in progress.
  3. Analysis of the friction coefficients between urological catheters and animal tissue, Wiechecka P., BSc thesis, 2015.
  4. Immobilization of thermally modified lysozyme on the surface of polymeric materials, Lutyńska A., MA thesis, 2014.
