Jakub Waldemar Trzciński PhD Eng.

Research Assistant Professor


He studied biotechnology and chemistry. In 2014 he received his PhD in Chemistry from the Chemistry Department of Università Degli Studi di Parma (Italy), presenting the thesis: Supramolecular materials for sensing. During postdoctoral fellowships (Università Degli Studi di Padova, University College London), he focused his research on organic synthesis, gold, silver, silicon oxide and polymer nanomaterials as synthetic vaccines, antibacterial systems and drug carriers. He is associated with CEZAMAT since 2020, where he conducts research on surface chemistry and metallic (Au, Ag, Cu, Fe), inorganic and polymeric nanostructures as drug carriers, vaccines, sensors and as biomaterial precursors.
