About this product
- DescriptionThis book presents the state of the art in vascular biology, investigating cellular and molecular aspects of blood vessel formation and their functioning in health and diseases. It places special emphasis on reactive oxygen species and role of microRNAs.
- Author BiographyProfessor Jozef Dulak completed his doctoral studies at the Laboratory of Evolutionary Immunology at the Faculty of Biology, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland, in 1990. He spent his post-doctoral trainings at Free University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands (1990/1991), University of Muenster, Germany (1994), and Stanford University, USA (1996/1997). He was appointed Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Biology of Jagiellonian University in Krakow from 1990 to 1993, at then at the Department of Clinical Biochemistry from 1993-1999. From 1999 to 2001 he was a research fellow at the Department of Cardiology, Innsbruck University, Austria. He became Associate Professor at the Department of Cell Biochemistry of Jagiellonian University in 2001. Since 2005 he has been the Head of the Department of Medical Biotechnology and since October 2007 he has been full Professor of the Department of Medical Biotechnology, Faculty of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Biotechnology, Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland. Since 2011 he is a member of the Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2012 he became doctor honoris causa of University of Orleans, France. His research interests focus on mechanism of angiogenesis and vascularisation, the role of oxidative stress, gasotransmitters and non-coding RNA in stem cells differentiation, application of gene and cell therapy in modulating neovascularisation and inflammation, and the role of hypoxia in blood vessel formation. Professor Alicja Jozkowicz obtained her PhD degree in 1997 at the Laboratory of Evolutionary Immunology, Faculty of Biology, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. She worked at the Department of Clinical Biochemistry (1996-2000) and was a post-doctoral research fellow at the Department of Cell Biology, Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, USA (1997-1998), and at the Department of Vascular Surgery, Medical University in Vienna, Austria (2000-2002). In 2002 she joined as Assistant Professor the Faculty of Biochemistry Biophysics and Biotechnology, Jagiellonian University in Krakow. In 2005 she became Associate Professor at the Department of Medical Biotechnology, and then a full Professor in 2010. She is the president of the Polish Society of Cell Biology since 2009. Her research interests include the role of oxidative stress and inflammatory reaction in regulation of endothelial cell function, effects of antioxidative genes on tumor neovascularization, and involvement of microRNA in these processes.
