I am a graduate of Military Medical University in Łódź. Just after studies I started work as an academic teacher, first at Human Physiology Institute, then, since 2002 at Department of Adult Psychiatry of Medical University in Łódź.

In 2003 I achieved a doctorate degree in Medicine. In 2012 I was qualified as an university professor in Medicine, specialization in Psychiatry.

I have the honour to work in one of the best team of psychiatrists and psychologists in Poland. People with a long-standing clinical and practical experience supported by the latest scientific knowledge. The Department of Adult Psychiatry of Łódź is currently one of the most thriving scientific centers dealing with psychiatry in Poland.

I sincerely invite to have a look at current scientific editions.

Current scientific news !!!

My scientific interests are concerned around biological and genetic pathomechanisms of psychiatric disorders, depression and schizophrenia especially. Number of my scientific works concern depressive disorders with systemic inflammatory processes. In science I present the school which considers psychic diseases as biological diseases. I am the author and co-author of over 250 publications in national and international journals and I am the co-editor of 7 monographs.
