Open PhD position

We are looking for a new PhD student within our new grant in collaboration with the Institute of Physics at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, where the student will be based. More information here (in Polish only).

Phage-based bioconjugates… on the cover!

Our recently published article was featured on the front cover of Bioconjugate Chemistry! This paper describes a new method for fast bacteria detection. Fluorescent-magnetic submicroparticles were conjugated with non-modified T4 bacteriophages. Prepared probes combined with widely used flow cytometry enabled fast and easy bacteria detection (in this case, Escherichia coli). Magnetic […]

Press release about our recent work was just published. Bacteriophage-based bioconjugates are gaining more and more interest! in English: in Polish:,412863,sposob-na-szybka-identyfikacje-bakterii-w-infekcjach.html

Best poster award on the Microsymposium

During The Annual Microsymposium in the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS Joanna gave a talk about hierarchical 3-dimensional nickel-iron nanostructures for glucose sensing. We also presented our research in two posters. We are pleased to inform that the poster about our recent publication presented by Marta Janczuk-Richter and Łukasz Richter […]

Modified Filamentous Bacteriophage… on the cover!

We are pleased to inform that the paper of Katarzyna Szot-Karpińska was selected to be on the cover of the latest issue of Bioconjugate Chemistry! Great work! The paper describes M13 bacteriophages with a mutation in the gene VII, which specifically binds to carbon nanofibers (CNF) at the end where […]

Scientific workshop for talented youth

Between November 28 to December 2 we hosted the most talented young people from the whole country on the short scientific workshop organized by Narodowy Fundusz na Rzecz Dzieci. The participants had an opportunity to perform experiments in our group connected with nanotechnology and surface modifications. Good job!

Grant for nanowire photonics research

The result of the latest round of applications from the National Research Centre Poland (NCN) was just announced on their webpage. Joanna’s Opus application in collaboration with Prof. Sebastian Mackowski who leads the Optics of Hybrid Nanostructures Group at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun was accepted. The project with […]

Hello world!

This is the new webpage of the Surface Nanoengineering group. As of now it is very much under construction, but eventually it will grow into a functional page showing what research we do, what we publish and who we are.
