Paweł is an expert in detection and measurement techniques with a strong background in microbiology and biotechnology. He graduated from the Interfaculty Studies of Biotechnology at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences in 2013. Working at the Maria Sklodowska – Curie Memorial Cancer Center and Institute of Oncology, Paweł researched early detection of cancer cells in body fluids, and later – he studied molecular mechanisms of resistance of tuberculosis bacteria to anti-TB drugs at the National Tuberculosis and Lung Diseases Research Institute. The collected experience encouraged him to look for a fast, sensitive, and repeatable substance detection method. Its initial result was the defense of his master thesis in the field of Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) in forensics (project conducted in cooperation with the Central Forensic Laboratory of the Police in Warsaw). Later he joined a research team working on SERS platform development at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences. As an expert in detection and measurement methods, Paweł invented a few relevant modifications which enhanced their sensitivity, repeatability, and overall performance. This led him to became one of the SERSitive cofounders and its CTO.
