Patrycja Baranowska, PhD Eng.



Graduate of the Faculty of Chemistry at the Warsaw University of Technology (MSc. Eng. 2017). In October 2022 defended doctoral thesis at the Faculty of Chemistry of the Warsaw University of Technology entitled "Development of a Lab-on-a-chip flow microsystem for the creation and functional analysis of the pancreatic islet model in physiological conditions and type 2 diabetes." In 2019, she became the head of a project financed by the National Science Center - the Preludium 17 entitled: "Development of a new approach based on the use of a three-dimensional pancreatic islet model in the Lab-on-a-Chip microfluidic system to conduct high-throughput functional analysis in physiological and pathological conditions". Contractor in 3 research projects: NCBiR LIDER (2017) SONATA NCN (2017-2018), SONATA BIS NCN (since 2021). Since 2022, she has been working as a research assistant professor in the Laboratory of Biomedical Microfluidic Systems and Cellular Engineering. The conducted research concerns the development of microfluidic system for the culture of cellular models applicable in diagnostic research and research on new, potential therapeutic agents.
