Aleksandra is a PhD student. She obtained her Bachelor's degree from the College of Inter-Faculty Individual Studies in Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Warsaw in 2017, and a Master's Degree from the Faculty of Biology, University of Warsaw in 2018. Both projects she realized in the Laboratory of RNA Biology and Functional Genomics focusing on the role of noncanonical poly(A) polymerase TENT5C in immune cells and mRNA 3’ end sequencing methods. In 2017, she performed a two-months internship within the Erasmus+ project in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University, Denmark.
In 2018, she has started a PhD studies in the Faculty of Biology, University of Warsaw, performing hers research in the Laboratory of the RNA Biology. Her PhD project focuses on the TENT5C role in B cell physiology. She aims to understand which mRNAs are polyadenylated by TENT5C in B cells, what mechanism gives TENT5C its substrate specificity, and how it affects B cell physiology. During her studies, she has completed an EMBL course on Nanopore sequencing.
Her research interests are: RNA biology, immunology, cytoplasmic polyadenylation, nanopore sequencing and her hobby: horse riding, volleyball and literature.
