LECTURES Professor Leszek Kaczmarek

Webinar

NeuroHack. We are waiting for you!

On May 9th, 2024, we hosted the distinguished scientist, Prof. Leszek Kaczmarek, Professor at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland, and head of the Laboratory of Neurobiology.

Leszek Kaczmarek has got his PhD in experimental hematology (mentor: Prof. W. Wiktor-Jedrzejczak), followed by D.Sc. (dr hab.) in the field of experimental oncology. He carried out postdoctoral studies in Philadelphia, USA (mentor: Prof. R. Baserga) and then was visiting professor in the University of Catania, Italy; McGill University, Montreal, Canada; University of California, Los Angeles and Institute of Photonic Sciences, ICFO, Castelldefels, Spain. Since 1986 his laboratory at the Nencki Institute has been investigating brain-mind connection at all the levels of brain organization from molecular to cellular to network to behavior in health and disease. 

Most of the work involves experimental animal models, however joint studies with clinicians on human neuropsychiatric disorders have also been pursued. The current major focus is on extracellular enzyme, matrix metalloproteinase, MMP-9, which his laboratory documented to play paramount role in neuronal/synaptic plasticity and then in learning and memory, development of epilepsy, schizophrenia, autism spectrum disorders and alcohol addiction.

NeuroHack. We are waiting for you!

Recently we conduted two seminars to launch our NeuroHack iniciative and call for action – we’re looking for Young Investigators to join us at the Neurohack event. 

NeuroHack was announced by Bertrand Dupond during the presentation on 28th February 2024 at PORT.

On 11th March 2024 at our Institute, Michał Ślęzak and Agnieszka Krzyżosiak and Bertrand Dupont, led the webinar for researchers from all four Partner Institutions, during which they presented the scientific focus od SAME-NeuroID projecy and aim of the NeuroHack event.

NeuroHack is a three-day event addressed mainly to PhD students and post-docs who have an idea for an innovative product or solution developing the latest knowledge in the field of neurobiology. The workshops will be held in the form of a hackathon, which means that participants will be divided into teams, and their task will be to develop a product or solution submitted as an idea for implementation.
