Visiting PhD students

Magdalena Budzińska

Magdalena is a PhD candidate at the Sydney Medical School, The University of Sydney, Australia, working on deciphering pre-cancerous genomic alterations occurring in liver DNA leading to development of liver cancer (Hepatocellular Carcinoma, HCC). She obtained her Master’s degree in Biotechnology with major in Bioinformatics from the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology. Currently, she’s a visiting researcher at the University of Warsaw. Her work during the visit is focusing on identification of synthetic lethal interaction partners with genes that are commonly altered by somatic mutations in hepatocellular carcinoma.
