Szymon Świeżewski, PhD

PI

I am interested in how plants utilise antisense transcription to regulate key developmental transitions. Since 2009 I am studying seed dormancy regulation.

Krzysztof Kokoszka, PhD

Lab manager

I did my PhD in Andrzej Jerzmanowski laboratory on histone H1. Since 2010 I am working as a lab manager supervising all the crazy people working in the lab. 
In free time I love cycling and gardening.

Ruslan Yatusevich, PhD

Post-doc

DOG1 is well known master regulator of seeds dormancy in plants and main subject of study in Swiezewski laboratory as a model gene.
My research interests are focused on understand epigenetic mechanisms related to antisense transcription regulation and hormonal signalling pathways as well as identification of novel transcriptional regulators involved in primary and secondary seed dormancy. The research project is supported by NCN OPUS grant (UMO-2018/31/B/NZ3/03363).

My supervisor - Szymon Swiezewski teaches me at any time always trust yourself, keep thinking and to be brave, everything will develop from imperfection to perfection. In my eyes, the art of science is mostly like a dream, just imagine and it will be truly possible.

Miguel Coelho

PhD student

I decided to wrap my towel and leave the beach in Portugal to come straight to the Szym Lab to complete my MSc. Currently, as PhD student I feel like I've learned a lot, and yet much more I can learn here.
I'm deeply interested in gene expression regulation, chromatin remodelling, and finding where the hell did I put my towel cause I need some sun bathing!

Emilia Cepowska

Master Student

I’m a passionate biotechnology student who aspires to continue research in the future. Being part of Szymon’s lab has helped to me gain a lot of experience, but most importantly it taught me that plant research and working with Arabidopsis thaliana is not that bad, it’s fun!
