Delivery of molecular payloads through primary human cell membrane

Anna Orlowska

Short Bio

Anna Orlowska background combines veterinary (focused on toxicology and including practical experience with laboratory animals), pathology and medicine with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research work – with special interest in cancer research, due to recent experience with in vitro experiments using living (cancer) cells and subsequent functional assays in the FORM laboratory at the Medical Centre of University Goethe University Frankfurt.

During the veterinary degree Anna attended the ERASMUS Program in Afyon Kocatepe University, Turkey, where she was heavily involved in all aspects of the laboratory work as well as in performing surgeries on animals. Following this experience, she decided to pursue her interest in research and managed to secure a position at the Royal Veterinary College in London, where she earned a further intercalated BSc. degree in Veterinary Pathology. This period of study provided an exceptional opportunity to work with top researchers in their field. The programme was project-centered and enabled her to work independently on full-time research in one of the UK government’s Level 3 Biosafety facilities. For the last four months Anna has been working within the Facial Oral Regenerative Medicine (FORM) in Frankfurt, which she joined due to her increasing focus on tissue regeneration, cell cultures and biomaterials. Her experience in FORM has been extremely engaging and has provided another excellent learning opportunity working with talented and dedicated professionals in the laboratory.
