Mariusz Wieckowski
Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, Warsaw, PL
Prof. Wieckowski was born in Jelenia Gora in 1972, and graduated in Biochemistry at Warsaw University in 1995. He completed his PhD at Nencki Institute in 1999, focusing on the role of mitochondrial megachannel in the uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation. In 2002 he joined the prof. R. Rizzuto’s laboratory at the University of Ferrara, where as a post-doc he began studies on close interaction between endoplasmic reticulum with mitochondria. Almost since 2007 in the Laboratory of Bioenergetics and Biomembranes at Nencki Institute, he leads his own team continuing working on the molecular composition of mitochondrial megachannel and MAM and PAM physiology. He has published nearly 110 papers in refereed journals (e.g. two papers in Science, two papers in Nature Protocols, PNAS, Nature Reviews Cardiology, EMBO Reports, Antioxidants & Redox Signaling and etc.). His total IF >580; h-index: 37; Citations > 5500. His research is focused on different aspects of intracellular oxidative stress (especially in the context of mitochondrial disorders) and resolving the issue how does mitochondrial dysfunction affect mitochondrial and cellular properties. Moreover, he is investigating the relations between mitochondrial energetic and oxidative stress in tumors as well as pharmacological toxicity to mitochondria. In the range of Horizon 2020 and National Science Center projects he is investigating the role of mitochondria and oxidative stress in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
