Karina Kwapiszewska is describing herself as passionate about breaking interdisciplinary barriers. Her main interest is understanding cell biology and biophysics in order to utilize them in bioanalysis, tissue engineering, and pharmacology. As a tool, she bridges biology with hi-tech solutions like microfluidics and advanced microscopy.
Karina graduated from Warsaw University of Technology in 2009 (Master of Science, Engineer in Chemical Biotechnology). In 2014 obtained a Ph.D. in Biotechnology from the Faculty of Chemistry, Warsaw University of Technology, for the work on microfluidics for cell engineering. During her post-doc, she investigated the structure of human cell cytoplasm using advanced microscopy methods to provide tools for quantitative biochemistry in vivo.
Karina filled prestigious courses about bringing scientific achievements to society (Cambridge Judge Business School), and management (Harvard Business School) She is a co-author of scientific papers and patents. Laureate of numerous awards, scholarships, and grants. She has led the project within wich the Cell-IN product was developed (LIDER/10/0033/L-9/17/NCBR/2018, National Centre for Research and Development).
