Patrycja Golińska

Patrycja Golińska has graduated from Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń (NCU), Poland. In 2004 she obtained MSc degree in biology and in 2008 PhD degree in biological sciences. Her PhD thesis was focused on the study of the actinomycetes of forest soils, their biodiversity, and enzymatic and biocontrol activities. In 2011 and 2012 she was a post-doctoral fellow in School of Biology of Newcastle University (UK), in the laboratory of Prof. Michael Goodfellow, where she investigated taxonomy of actinomycetes from acidic environments. In 2015 she participated in a sea expedition in the Southern Ocean within an interdisciplinary grant from EC “PHARMADEEP: New pharmaceuticals from the deep Antarctic”. In 2017 she obtained habilitation in the field of biological sciences, discipline of biology at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. Since 2019 she has been Associated Professor of NCU and working in the Department of Microbiology. In her research team several project have been conducted (MSCA, NCN, NAWA) which are focused on taxonomy of actinomycetes from extreme environments (deserts, saline lakes, acidic soils) and their biotechnological potential in industry, medicine and agriculture, and also on bionanotechnology – the use of microorganisms to synthesise nanoparticles for application in medicine, food industry, and for plant protection and plant growth promotion.

Patrycja Golińska has published over 70 papers in the field of taxonomy and bionanotechnology 20 chapters and edited 3 books in reputed publishers (Taylor and Francis Group). She supervised 2 PhD theses and two other are at different stages of PhD processing. She is a member of Polish Society of Microbiologists and FEMS.
