Weather-wise, it has not been a good year for Poland. Repeated floods inundated thousands of hectares of land, causing deaths, destroying infrastructure and fields, and robbing families of property and possessions for which they had worked their whole lives. We are largely to blame ourselves for the floods and their aftermath—because we follow a misguided regional development policy, try to economize on hydrological systems, and fail to pay sufficient attention to flood prevention. After the catastrophic floods of the late 1990s and the special investments made since then, the ability to monitor weather changes and warn people in good time of impending danger has improved considerably. However, much still remains to be done in this area both in Poland and elsewhere.
Prof. Tadeusz Robak, head of the Hematology Clinic at the Medical University of ŁódĽ, talks to Danuta K. Gruszczyńska.
The Andrzej Sołtan Institute for Nuclear Studies in ¦wierk near Warsaw has built the prototype of an ionization chamber designed for use in nuclear medicine laboratories. The device makes it possible to precisely determine the activity of radiopharmaceuticals before they are administered to patients.
Polish and Iranian researchers plan to work together in the field of radiotherapy. The deal was sealed by a letter of intent signed Oct. 1 at the Ministry of the Economy in Warsaw by Iranian Deputy Health Minister Prof. Mustafa Ghanei and Prof. Grzegorz Wrochna, director of the Institute for Nuclear Studies in ¦wierk near Warsaw.
Three young researchers have each won a scholarship of zl.30,000 in a program called Innodoktorant “Innovative Ph.D. Student” aiming to transfer innovation from science to industry.
A number of young researchers in the coastal city of Gdańsk are working to develop technologies to alleviate environmental problems in northern Poland.
Interdisciplinary projects in which medicine blends with physics and chemistry contribute to the prevention and treatment of a growing number of diseases. Such projects also aid the development of biotechnology and the food and cosmetics industries.
A technology for storing carbon dioxide underground and clean coal technologies including coal gasification directly in the bed—these are the main research programs of the Polish Clean Coal Technology Platform established by a group of energy-sector companies led by Vattenfall Poland
A team of scientists from the Technical University of ŁódĽ, headed by Prof. Stanisław Bielecki, is working on a technology to make cellulose with the help of the Gluconacetobacter xylinus acetic fermentation bacteria. Dressings made from this material can be used to treat first- and second-degree burns, bedsores, trophic wounds and non-healing wounds in diabetic patients.
Polish computer scientist Piotr Sankowski of the University of Warsaw’s Institute of Information Science will receive research funding from the European Research Council as part of its 3rd Starting Independent Researcher Grant program.
A team of physicists and astronomers from the Jagiellonian University in Cracow have developed an innovative system for monitoring storms around the world. The system marks a breakthrough in meteorology, the researchers say.
Scientists from the Institute of Biopolymers and Chemical Fibers in ŁódĽ have developed a method for extracting keratin protein from chicken feathers. The protein can be used to make fibers or sponges for medical purposes.
Can a blood sample reveal traces of large doses of radiation absorbed many years ago? A group of researchers led by Dr. Maria Kowalska at the Central Laboratory for Radiological Protection (CLOR) in Warsaw have developed a method that makes it possible to determine if workers were exposed to radiation in the past
The Intelligent LED Street Lighting System (SILED), developed by a group of engineers and scientists in Gdańsk, automatically adjusts the intensity of emitted light to the brightness of daylight.
Researchers at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow have developed an innovative form of cancer treatment that uses a genetically modified strain of the Salmonella bacterium. Introduced into tumors, the bacterium destroys cancer tissue from the inside.
The Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań is almost 400 years old and delivers a long list of education and research programs in a variety of fields. The university is one of the top institutions of higher education in Poland.
Some of the reactor’s components are being assembled by scientists from the Polish Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Nuclear Physics in Cracow, while physicists from the Andrzej Sołtan Institute for Nuclear Studies in ¦wierk near Warsaw and the Wrocław University of Technology have helped build a neutral beam injector to heat up plasma.
