Elzbieta Lodyga-Chruscinska

Technical University of Lodz, Poland

Elzbieta Lodyga-Chruscinska is a Professor of Technical University of Lodz, Lodz, Poland. She received her M.S. degree in 1975 from the Faculty of Chemistry, Technical University, Lodz, the Ph.D. degree in 1984 from the Faculty of Food Chemistry, Technical University, Lodz, and the D.S. degree in 2003 from the Faculty of Chemistry, Technical University, Lodz. Her scientific interests and main subjects of current research are bioinorganic chemistry, coordination chemistry of copper(II), nickel(II), zinc(II), and vanadium(IV). Her research goal is to determine the chemical basis (binding, reactions, structural effects) for the biological roles and physiological effects of metal ions. Much of her current research focuses on the coordination chemistry of peptides, polyphenols, and their analogues and modified nucleosides. Her approach involves quantifying metal ion binding to the selected peptide/polyphenol/nucleosides sequences and then using spectroscopic (NMR, EPR, CD) and potentiometric methods to characterize the resulting metal-bioligand complexes. Her teaching activity is analysis of toxic metals in food products. She lectures on bioinorganic chemistry, Course of Biotechnology, general and inorganic chemistry, Course of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology, and toxicology, Course of Environmental Chemistry
