I graduated in 1996 from the Faculty of Medicine of the Jagiellonian University Collegium Medicum in Cracow. Then I completed my doctoral studies in molecular biology at this faculty. In 2001, I was awarded the title of doctor of medical sciences, defended with distinction for my work entitled "The Degree of the Medical University of Warsaw". "Genetic expression of leukotrien C4 synthase in peripheral blood eosinophils in bronchial asthma patients".
For my scientific work in this period I received, among others, the Scholarship of the Foundation for Polish Science for Young Scientists, the Award of the Prime Minister for my doctoral dissertation and a distinction in the Aurelia Baczko Competition awarded by the Society for the Support and Promotion of Sciences in Warsaw.
In 2001-2002 I was on a scholarship at the Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia PA, USA. I was the first prize winner of the 22nd annual Dr. Erwin Margulies competition in the field of anticoagulant research at the Sol Sherry Thrombosis Research Center, Temple University of Philadelphia. In 2017, I was awarded the title of PhD in medical science for my thesis entitled "The Degree of the Medical Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences". "The role of selected integrin receptors and their selective inhibitors in the modulation of inflammatory reaction, with particular emphasis on collagen integrin receptors in asthma".
My medical activity from the time of graduation was connected with the II Department of Internal Medicine of the Jagiellonian University Medical College. I am a specialist in internal diseases, allergology and clinical immunology, and my clinical and research interests focus on autoimmune and allergological diseases.
