We went for half-day trip to Ojców National Park. We experienced sunny Polish autumn and had plenty of scientific discussions. We got back to our desks with a lot of new energy!
The 34th Marian Smoluchowski Symposium on Statistical Physics came to an end with plenty of great talks. On Wednesday Maciej presented his research on mechanics of domain formation with analytical insights on spatial and temporal aspects of domain stability. Maciej’s talk was followed by Richard discussing how robustness and precision is achieved in the developing spinal cord by exploring system level-feedback between source and target tissue. We are looking forward to the next edition of Smoluchowski conference!
Maciej Kania has recently started his bilateral exchange at the University of Montreal in Canada. In the fall semester of 2021/22, he will continue his undergraduate studies in neurosciences mainly focused on neurodevelopment and memory processes. Good luck Maciej!
Adela has recently written an article about the role of robotics in laboratories. It appeared in a quarterly Technical Review—The Codex published by DaVinciLabs, a multi-disciplinary research centre. The whole issue also containing articles on sustainable textiles, AI, and an interview with Prof Alessio Fasano and can be accessed here: https://www.davincilabs.eu/downloads/The_Codex_Q3_2021.pdf
We have opening for scholarship for PhD students. The project goal is to identify regulatory mechanisms that affect patterning precision in the developing spinal cord. Details can be found at: https://zagorskigroup.com/open-positions/. If you are interested please contact me in advance. We wait for your applications till 17 September!
Adela has recently written an article about the premise of cultured meat technology. It appeared in a quarterly Technical Review—The Codex published by DaVinciLabs, a multi-disciplinary research centre. The whole issue also containing articles on quantum computing, AI, and an interview with José Ignacio Latorre, can be accessed here: https://www.flipsnack.com/davincilabs/the-codex-q2-2021.html
Today I will give an evening seminar (7pm) about morphogenes, gene regulation and information processing during development at students’ neuroscience society “Neuronus” (Jagiellonian University). The talk will be available through MS Teams.
Today at 12:00 postdoc Wiktor Młynarski from IST Austria will tell us about statistical inference of optimality in biological systems. He will introduce a framework that can be used to make predictions in different datasets in neuroscience. The webinar will be on Zoom. To join please contact me. Everyone is welcome!
A short interview about my research on developing spinal cord and possible long-term applications. Read at (only in Polish): http://panoramagospodarcza.pl/przelomowe-podejscie-w-badaniach-nad-rdzeniem-kregowym/
Recently I was awarded with the “Polish Intelligent Development Award 2020” in the category “Scientist of the future” for running projects on information decoding in developmental systems (NAWA) as well as deciphering regulatory mechanism for reproducible pattern specification in spinal cord (NCN). I am looking forward to the 5th Intelligent Development Forum (https://irforum.pl/eng/) for inspiring talks and discussions!
