Krystyna Skalicka-Woźniak

Medical University of Lublin

Prof. Krystyna Skalicka-Woźniak (PhD, DSc) studied pharmacy at the Medical University of Lublin, Poland and received her Master’s degree in 2002. She completed her PhD in pharmacognosy with Prof. Kazimierz Głowniak in 2008 at the Medical University, and her dissertation was awarded with a Prime Minister Award for the best Doctoral Dissertation. After habilitation (DSc) in 2015, she was appointed as an Assoc. Prof. at the Medical University of Lublin and in 2019 she received the title of full Professor of Medical Sciences.

She has received several awards for her research, including one for Outstanding Young Scientists for a period of three years or The Ministry of Health for outstanding achievements or Ministry of Health first dgr for outstanding habilitation thesis. She has published more than 160 scientific papers, mostly in international journals.

Prof. Skalicka-Woźniak participated in several grants from both national (The National Science Centre / The Ministry of Science and Higher Education) and international centers (Austrian Drug Screening Institute GmbH, TUBITAK). Her research interests include the discovery of bioactive compounds in plants, and the optimization of modern extraction and chromatographic techniques. The focus of her work for the past few years was the application of counter-current chromatography (CCC) for the isolation of natural products, particularly coumarins and terpenoids, and their biological evaluation for antimicrobial, antiviral, anticancer, spasmolytic, apoptotic, and antioxidant activities, as well as for Central Nervous System activity (epilepsy, anxiety and memory-related behavior in mice and zebrafish models). Her experience with CCC was acquired through a training period in a world-leading research center, the Brunel Institute of Bioengineering at Brunel University in London, and she is currently leading in applying this technique in Poland. She is serving as a Subject Editor of the journal Phytochemistry Letters (Elsevier) and as General Secretary of Phytochemical Society of Europe and Advisory Board Member of Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research (GA). Since 2019, Prof. Skalicka-Wozniak serves as expert in the National Science Center of Poland and is a lecturer and visiting scientist at the Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine at University of Bern, Switzerland.
