I am a material engineer who graduated from the Warsaw University of Technology. My interest in using materials in medical applications started at the very beginning of my studies. For me, tissue engineering is a fascinating field of science due to its interdisciplinary character. What motivates me to do research in tissue engineering, is the belief that our studies can contribute to the improvement of the patients' health and the level of functioning in the near future.
