Sylwia Karoń MSc Eng.



She graduated from two universities – Warsaw University of Life Sciences and Warsaw University of Technology. She performed research for her master's thesis at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in the Living Materials group. The research work included the inactivation and separation of bacteriophages via conjugates of magnetic particles and antibodies. Her current scientific works focus on novel constructions of immunosensors for the medical diagnostics of viral infections, which allow for quick adaptation of the receptor layer to the pathogen of interest. The research aims to select optimal conditions for immobilization and interactions of receptor layers containing receptor conjugates with DNA anchors using label-free techniques, such as SPR. Privately, she loves theater, travel, and discovering new cuisines.
