Dr. Wioleta received MSc degree from Chemistry at the University of Silesia (2011, Poland). Then, she started 2-year predoctoral research work at the University of Oviedo (Spain) in the field of biocatalysis. In 2013, inspired by nanoscience and nanotechnology, she successfully applied and got a 3-year fellowship for Early-Stage Researcher within SO2S Network funded by the Marie Curie Initial Training Network (Aveiro, Portugal and Madrid, Spain). In 2017 she defended her PhD thesis entitled ‘Synthesis of novel photosensitizer-silica nanoparticle hybrids for controlled 1O2 release in cancer photodynamic therapy’ and received double PhD title: PhD in Nanosciences and Nanotechnology from the University of Aveiro, Portugal and PhD in Chemistry from the Autonoma University of Madrid, Spain. In 2020 Dr. Borzęcka was awarded prestigious Individual Fellowship MSCA-IF-2019 funded under H2020-EU for her 2-year project which is dedicated to the development of novel biodegradable phtalocyanine-polymeric nanoparticles for cancer photodynamic therapy enhancement. Currently she is realizing this project at the Centre of Polymer and Carbon Materials, Polish Academy of Science, Zabrze, Poland
Her research interests focus on the development of novel smart nanoparticles delivery systems for cancer therapy.
