The Laboratory of Nanostructures for Photonics and Nanomedicine at the Polish Academy of Sciences’ Institute of High Pressure Physics was launched in 2010 as part of the CePT consortium’s Centre for Nano-Bio Materials. The laboratory relies on its staff’s 10 years of experience in the application of high-pressure methods for obtaining nanomaterials, but with the support of CePT the lab’s research focus has strongly shifted to the application of nanotechnology in medicine.

The laboratory employs two professors, four senior researchers with PhD degrees, two technical staff members, and 10 young researchers. Every year they publish about 10 research papers in top international journals. The team’s leader is Prof. Witold £ojkowski. Over the past year the researchers have obtained one national and one international patent. About 70 percent of the personnel costs are covered by European projects. Research tasks include the development of new nano-bio materials for the regeneration of bones after cancer operations or injuries; development of a nanotechnology-based optical oxygen sensor for life-saving procedures; study of the toxicity of nanomaterials and their impact on the environment; and developing nano-material characterization methods applicable in industry. Support provided by CePT has enabled the researchers to purchase key equipment for the development of nano-bio materials, particularly for medical applications. This includes apparatus for the synthesis and characterization of nanoparticles and devices for processing materials in clean and sterile conditions. With this high-end infrastructure, the laboratory is an attractive partner for European research projects.
