Dr. rer. nat Katarzyna M. Grochowska obtained her M.Sc. degree in Biotechnology at Warsaw University of Life Sciences, Warsaw, Poland. Afterward, she performed her PhD studies at the Leibniz Institute for Neurobiology (LIN) within a Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN Programme under the supervision of Dr. Michael Kreutz. During her PhD research, she focused on the molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, especially Alzheimer’s disease.
Currently, she studies the mechanisms of neurodegeneration, especially in the context of excitation-transcription coupling, endolysosomal degradative pathway, and neuroinflammatory signaling.
