Faculty of Medicine


In the Department of Physiopathology, research projects are carried out as part of the statutory activity (entitled “The role of limited proteolytic processes in the aging of lymphocytes and pathogenesis of chronic inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases”) and individual projects funded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and the National Science Center.

  • National Science Center project UMO-2011/01/M/NZ3/02948 “Possible participation of changes in the activity of the calpain-calpastatin system in the aging processes of human T lymphocytes – a comparison of long-lived people of Poland (Pomerania) and Italy (Sicily)” (PI: prof. Jacek M. Witkowski, 2012-2014)
  • Promoter grant N N401 614140 “Effect of normothymic drugs on apoptosis and activation of peripheral blood T cells in patients with bipolar disorder” (PI: Krzysztof Pietruczuk, 2012-2013)
