Maria Górna Ph.D. acquired funds for two grants – Lider and Embo Istallation Grants. She is a group leader of the Structural Biology group at the CNBCh UW. This group is part of the Laboratory of Biomacromolecular Research.
Lider is a program dedicated to young scientists. Its main aim is skilling up in team research management during project completion. Maria Górna was granted funds for a project “IFIT proteins in the detection of RNA pathogenes”.
EMBO Installation Grants are funds helping young talented leaders to establish their own research groups and laboratories at their home institutions. Grants encourage young scientists working abroad to return and work at home institutions.
Maria Górna Ph.D. is an assistant professor at the Faculty of Chemistry. She completed her M.Sc. studies at the College of Inter-Faculty Individual Studies in Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Warsaw. Her program of studies combined molecular biology and chemistry. She has a Ph.D. degree from the Faculty of Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge, where she studied the structure and function of bacterial RNA degradosome under professor Ben Luisi. She carried out her postdoctoral fellowship at the Centre of Molecular Medicine (CeMM) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in the group of professor Giulio Superti-Furga.
