The main prize in the '2018 edition of the "Golden Medal of Chemistry" competition - the Golden Medal of Chemistry and 10,000 PLN sponsored by DuPont Polska was awarded to Hubert Jóźwiak from Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. During a special meeting at the DuPont base the bachelor's degree alumni were awarded also with the Silver and the Bronze Medals of Chemistry and with five distinctions. Three additional distinctions have been awarded by DuPont.

The Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland, has recently received a European ERA Chair grant of 2.5 million euros. Soon, the grant will enable a world-class specialist in the field of biology, working where it meets with chemistry or physics, to be employed at the Institute.
In a standard scientific career usually several years pass between being awarded a master's degree and earning a doctorate. Krzysztof Sozański from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw has become a doctor shortly after graduation, at the age of 24 years. Such rapid progression was possible thanks to his early involvement in research work.

Scientists from Warsaw together with colleagues from Grenoble have moved a step closer to creating stable, high quality colloidal zinc oxide quantum dots (ZnO QDs) for use in modern technologies and nanomedicine. Using advanced DNP-enhanced NMR spectroscopy they have clearly proved the superiority of the developed organometallic approach over the traditional sol-gel procedure both in terms of stability and the highly-ordered organic shell of the resulting ZnO QDs.
Scientists are curious by nature and often look where they should not. From such looking, discoveries are born that literally broaden the horizons. Working jointly, researchers from Professor Wojtkowski?s team at IPC PAS, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Baltic Institute of Technology and their US collaborators from UC Irvine have recently managed to make practical use of infrared vision and by designing devices based on this phenomenon improve diagnosis of retinal diseases.
Look what we have CREATEd!
With pleasure we would like to invite you to watch a new film promoting the ERA Chair holder and his group.
The film is widespread by very characteristic red posters hanging - among other - at fence and on the premises of our Institute.
How light affects humans? How we perceive it and react to it? How one can conquer and harness the light to work for us and make our life longer, better. The ERA Chair holder and his team members talk about their light related fascinations, research, and new challenges.
