Research topics:

  • development of innovative therapy strategies based on stem cells and biointelligent carriers
  • implementation of innovative treatment protocols including preconditioning stem cells, transfer of extracellular vesicles and the regulation of gene expression
  • biotransformations and chemical synthesis of compounds with important biological properties which are useful in the pharmaceutical, agri-food and cosmetic industries
  • the use of biocatalysis to functionalize natural and synthetic chemical compounds in order to enhance / change their biological activity
  • biotechnological application of bacteriophages in human and veterinary medicine
  • genetic modifications of plants for improving their functional properties
  • biorefining of various types of waste (e.g. plastics, lignocellulosic raw materials, glycerin, municipal waste, agri-food industry waste) as a renewable source of carbon and energy for microorganisms (including genetically modified), in order to reduce environmental pollution and deliver added value compounds
  • determining biological activity (antitumor, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, cytotoxic, antioxidant, antidiabetic, hemolytic) of natural and synthetic compounds
  • description of the molecular mechanism of the interaction between natural and synthetic compounds and biomolecules (lipids, proteins, DNA), and biological membranes and cells
  • study of the systematics, biology, ecology and phylogeny of plants and animals
  • research on eco-evolutionary aspects of host-parasite relationships
  • research on biological and cultural variability of human prehistoric, historical and present populations and the analysis of palaeopathological changes in bone and teeth structures of humans and other mammals
  • human health and ontogenetic development in the context of environmental and genetic backgrounds; the occupation health and physiology of humans in the modern technical environment

Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences has the right to confer doctoral and postdoctoral degrees in natural sciences for the discipline of biological sciences.
