Doctor Ewa Klodzinska had finished her full time studies at Nicolaus Copernicus University, Faculty of Chemistry in Torun, in June 2002 and in 2003 was accepted for the PhD studies. Since 2003, she has been doing a research on determination and identification of microorganisms using the electromigration techniques for the purposes of medical diagnosis. With a cooperation of microbiologists and doctors - surgeons it was possible to identify in those biological samples some bacteria (on the level of strains) of the following species: Helicobacter pylori and Staphylococcus aureus (we were the first in the world to resolve and identify them by electromigration techniques. These matters were the subject of doctoral dissertation, which doctor Ewa Klodzinska successfully defended with an honorable mention on 17 October 2008. Her newest research concerns the usage of the molecular biology techniques (PCR) as well as the coupling of the capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) with fluorescence stereomicroscope. Another new approach is the application of a two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2D PAGE) as an alternative technique to the PCR method. This would serve to differentiate some bacteria within particular strains and also to monitor the cancerous alterations in the cells, by comparing the maps of separated and adequately died proteins. These two methods are the subject of two different patent applications. Actually, she is involved in studies based on application of two-dimensional electrophoresis (2 D PAGE) as a tool for separation and determination of proteins from microorganisms in samples of cancerous tissues and also in the clinical use of fast screening test based on technology of capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) for identification of bacterial infection in biological material.
