The member of our research team, MSc. Oliwia Jeznach was awarded by the Kosciuszko Foundation. She will have an opportunity to undergo a three-month scholarship in the USA . Per this period she will conduct research at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Tufts in Medford, in the group of prof. David Kaplan dealing with the biopolymers for tissue engineering and its properties characterization. During scholarship Mrs. Oliwia Jeznach will have an opportunity to use advanced techniques of material surface analysis, such as XPS or NMR spectroscopy. The works will enrich the results obtained as part of her PhD thesis and the OPUS project, which concern surface functionalization of nanofibres with as a laureate proteins.
