Prof. Elzbieta Jastrzebska, D.Sc. Ph.D. Eng.

Elzbieta Jastrzebska received her MSc in chemical technology from the Department of Chemistry, Warsaw University of Technology (WUT), Poland in 2008, and PhD in chemistry from the same faculty in 2012, and D.Sc. in biotechnology in 2018. Her current research interests are: development of the microsystems used in cellular engineering and in biotechnology as well as modification of the materials, i.e. poly(dimethylsiloxane) used in the fabrication of such microsystems. She develops Lab-on-a-chip systems used for two-dimensional and spatial (spheroids, hydrogels, multilayers) cell cultures and analysis of carcinoma cells as well as for testing of the selected therapeutic methods (i.e. photodynamic therapy) using free and encapsulated compounds. She also performs study based on Heart-on-a-chip systems and stem cells as a solution in cancer- and cardiotherapies
