Area of Expertise:
Optical Coherence Tomography , Endomicroscopy , Clinical Translation , Medical Imaging
Profile Summary

Michalina has long experience in using light to improve disease diagnoses and treatment. Her work is motivated by solving medical problems and her approach is to interlink the scientific development with regulatory guidelines from the very beginning of the project to enable successful translation to the clinic. She has over ten years of experience in academic interdisciplinary research in close collaboration with medical doctors. She previously developed, and translated to ‘first in human’, Optical Coherence Tomography imaging devices for ophthalmology and gastroenterology. Currently, she is starting a new research direction focused on investigation of the connection between the gut and the brain using light to improve management of neuro and digestive disorders.
