Welcome Malgorzata Michalowska!
New research assistant at the Division of Clinical Geriatrics.
What is your mission at NVS?/What will you be working with?
I will begin my work as a research assistant at the Translational Molecular Imaging Lab led by Professor Agneta Nordberg. The focus of my work will be on processing of in vivo PET imaging data and assessing biomarkers of age-related proteinopathies. My overall mission is to be a valuable member of the research group, always glad to collaborate.
Which division will you be working at?
I will be working at the Division of Clinical Geriatrics.
What do you look forward to the most in your new position?
I have to admit that it is just the very beginning of my career. That is why I am most excited about the simple aspects of the new work life: attending meetings in an international environment, daily learning, completing tasks while knowing that my work is of a high standard. I look forward to applying and expanding the knowledge on neurodegenerative diseases and neuroimaging.
Where have you been active before and what have you done earlier?
I completed my Research Master’s degree in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience at Maastricht University, in the Netherlands. During the last year of my studies, I did an internship in a molecular imaging center in Manchester, focusing on pathological aging processes.
When you are not working, what do you do for recreation?
I walk for hours while listening to podcasts and any type of music matching my energy levels. It is also my favourite way to explore streets and districts of cities, which are new to me.
Are you reading a book at the moment? Which one?
I have been coming back to re-reading the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, but this time in Italian, since I also want to combine reading with language learning.
Tell us about the most beautiful place you have visited?
I have to admit that I cannot get enough of Stockholm’s beauty. I have never lived in a place with so many stunning buildings and such proximity to the sea.
What makes you happy?
Dark chocolate and being in nature, especially with a company of a loved one. These things always keep me grounded and fulfilled.
