Monika Bil PhD Eng.

Research Assistant Professor


Monika Bil received her MSc. Eng. degree in polymer technology from Rzeszow University of Technology. Next, she moved to the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering at Warsaw University of Technology where she defended her doctoral thesis on the design of polyurethane scaffolds for bone tissue engineering. During her doctorate, she completed an internship within the KMMNoE Network of Excellence at Imperial College London, Department of Materials, Great Britain, where she was involved in the production of bioactive ceramic layers on porous substrates for tissue engineering. After receiving her doctoral degree, she spent one year as a postdoc at the National Institute for Materials Science, Tsukuba, Japan. She returned to the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering at Warsaw University of Technology where she was involved in research on the development of tissue engineering products for bone tissue regeneration carried out at the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering in the Biomaterials group. She completed postgraduate studies in the field of Quality Manager at the Warsaw School of Economics, where she defended her thesis on the certification of medical devices. She has been employed at the CEZAMAT Center for Advanced Materials and Technologies since 2020 as a research assistant professor.

Research areas

Her research has been mainly focused on the design and development of multifunctional materials for medical applications, polyurethanes and polyurethane based composites with shape memory properties, biodegradable scaffolds for tissue engineering, implantable drug delivery systems, biocomposites based on renewable raw materials for industry. The main research interests are concentrated on synthesis and analysis of correlations between structure and functional properties of the materials.
