Magdalena obtained a master’s degree in biotechnology at the Adam Mickiewicz University and a PhD in medical biology at the Poznan University of Medical Sciences. During her PhD she utilized array-CGH, MLPA, and qPCR, among other techniques, to examine molecular mechanisms of congenital limb malformations (CLMs) in human. She performed functional studies at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin and the Institute of Medical and Human Genetics (Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin), where she utilized CRISPR/Cas9 system to edit the genome of murine embryonic stem cells in order to recapitulate genetic defects identified in patients affected by CLMs.

In February 2023 she joined the Stem Cells Laboratory (prof. Borowiak’s group), where she will be studying the microenvironment of the differentiating and maturating human pancreatic cells.

In free time Magdalena enjoys reading and spending time in nature.
