Tomasz Kołodziej defended his thesis

On 13th November 2023 Tomek has sucessfully defended his thesis. Parto of his work was related to the use of nanodiamonds with NV color centers for making hybrid cell culturing substrates that were used for traction force microscopy (TFM) and temperature sensing through the optically detected magnetic resonance (ODMR). 

Congrats to Tomek!

QUNNA Meeting at Gdansk University of Technology, Gdańsk 15-18 May 2022

The QUNNA consortium meeting was held at Gdansk University of Technology from the 15th to the 18th of May 2022. The meeting was intended to share individual teams' progress and monitor the development of collaborative projects conducted by consortium partners. The leaders have presented the development in the ongoing projects, recent publications, progress in collaborative projects, and scheduled experimental works for the next three months. The steering committee examined the status of mini projects and provided suggestions for converting these projects to publications. All the consortium members discussed with each other for possible collaborations to solve any difficulties in the research work of individual members. This meeting also included with  three guest lectures from experts in three different fields. The first lecture was delivered by Dr. Philippe Bergonzo (https://iris.ucl.ac.uk/iris/browse/profile?upi=PBERG00), and the second lecture by Prof. Jacek Ryl (https://pg.edu.pl/en/p/jacek-ryl-740034) and the third lecture by Dr. Aldona Mzyk (https://research.rug.nl/en/persons/aldona-mzyk). The steering committee meeting was held for future research plans to fulfill the milestones set by the consortium. 


Qunna Core Facility now available at FarU

Qunna Core Facility was qualified and announced in the new information system of Consolidated Fahrenheit Universities (FarU) based on the MUG, UG and Gdańsk Tech.
Scientists of the Fahrenheit Universities have gained a new tool, which will make projects and research work significantly easier. As part of the grant project titled Supporting University Consolidation Processes, a system of joint management of member universities was applied.
Consolidation of the FarU universities at the level of key scientific and research infrastructure like Qunna Core Lab, especially within common categories, will include the optimisation of infrastructure use.
