Clinical Research Associate,
Joanna studied Medicine at the Medical University of Warsaw. She was also involved in teaching and research in the Department of Immunology investigating pro-oxidative treatment strategies in B-cell malignancies. Currently, she is a Ph.D. student in the CRUK Cambridge Centre Clinical Fellowship Programme jointly supervised by Dr. Daniel Hodson and Dr. Shamith Samarajiwa.
Her research focuses on translational regulation in aggressive B cell lymphomas such as Diffused Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) or Burkitt Lymphoma (BL). Joanna is mainly interested in dynamic changes in translation during lymphoma progression. Tight integration of next-generation sequencing data, mathematical modeling with subsequent wet-lab validation can reveal mechanisms of drug resistance acquisition and give insight into lymphoma early development.
