Pawel Stankiewicz, MD, PhD

Genomic Disorders: The focus of our research is pathogenetics of lung development and, in particular, the role of non-coding regulatory elements. We demonstrated that haploinsufficiency of the transcriptional factor FOXF1 gene on 16q24.1 results in a lethal neonatal diffuse developmental lung disorder, alveolar capillary dysplasia with misalignment of pulmonary veins (ACDMPV). Moreover, we unraveled the role of the TBX4 and FGF10 genes in other developmental lung diseases, including acinar dysplasia and congenital alveolar dysplasia. We found that somatic mosaicism for CNVs that also contribute to germline mosaicism is significantly more common than previously thought. We showed that a considerable number of apparently de novo mutations causing genomic disorders occur in the previous generation as low-level somatic mosaicism and can thus be recurrently transmitted to future offspring. We continue to study the scale and clinical importance of this phenomenon.

Anna Gambin, PhD

University of Warsaw

Professor Anna Gambin is deputy dean for research and international cooperation at the Faculty of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Mechanics at the University of Warsaw (term 2016-2024). In her scientific work, she deals with the mathematical modeling of molecular processes and efficient algorithms for analyzing biomedical data. Recently, her research is focused on computational methods supporting medical diagnostics based on genomic and proteomic data. She is the author of over 100 scientific publications and, to date, has supervised ten PhDs in computational biology.

Aleksandra Gruca, PhD

Silesian University of Technology

Aleksandra Gruca holds the position of Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Networks and Systems at the Silesian University of Technology. In addition, she serves as the Vice President of the Polish Bioinformatics Society. Her research primarily focuses on advancing machine learning techniques for analyzing protein sequences, with a particular interest in methods that search for similar low-complexity protein sequences with the aim to predict their function. She is also interested in application of predictive models for the integrated analysis of large-scale multi-omics datasets.
