Małgorzata Oleś has background in Biophysics (MSc, 2011, Jagiellonian University, Cracow, Poland) and Applied Computer Science (BSc, 2010, Jagiellonian University). During her Master’s studies she worked on the quantitative characterization of the behavior of magainin 2 amide, an antimicrobial peptide, in the interfacial region of a model bacterial membrane by using molecular dynamics simulation.
Gosia joined EMBL to pursue research which combines her two big interests: biomedicine and computer science. She focused on understanding the biological background of the diverse drug responses in patients, which will hopefully lead to advancements in modern precision oncology treatment strategies. Within close collaboration with physicians at the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) in Heidelberg she used bioinformatic tools to gain insight into high-throughput multi-omics data of primary tumor samples of patients suffering from lymphoproliferative diseases (LPD). She defended her PhD in March 2017. Since then she wraps up the project data and analysis in order to provide it as a resource to the other scientists..
