Mgr inż. Dagmara Słota

Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Krakow University of Technology

Graduate of the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology, Krakow University of Technology. Tadeusz Kościuszko. She completed her engineering and master's studies in biotechnology, partially completing the second degree at the Technische Universität Hamburg in Germany. In 2019, after defending her diploma thesis, she started doctoral studies at the Doctoral School of the Krakow University of Technology,
in the discipline of Materials Engineering. In parallel, she started postgraduate studies
"Biomaterials - materials for medicine" at the Faculty of Materials Science and Ceramics, AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow. He is currently in the 4th year of the Doctoral School, and the topic of his doctoral thesis is "Composite coating with controlled bioactivity for medical applications".

Her scientific interests focus on broadly understood biomaterials,
with particular emphasis on composites intended for the regeneration of bone tissue
and godmother. By modifying the obtained materials, it gives them the character of a carrier of active substances
for targeted therapy. It develops multifunctional materials for implants that can be personalized to the needs of a given patient. She presented the results of her research during over 30 scientific conferences of both national and international status, and is also the author and co-author of 18 scientific publications, published in journals included in the list of scientific journals and publishing houses of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, as well as the JCR list. The research results presented during the conference received distinctions five times. The composite materials developed so far have also been appreciated internationally at fairs and invention exhibitions in, among others, Geneva, Zagreb, Warsaw and Nuremberg (a total of 8 medals and distinctions). He is also the co-inventor of 5 patent applications.

She completed 6 scientific internships carried out both in Poland and abroad, among others
at Comenius University, Faculty of Pharmacy in Slovakia or Lancaster University, Materials Science Institute in Aglia.

In 2023, she became the winner of the 13th National Student-Inventor Competition, winning the main prize. The competition was held under the patronage of, among others, the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland and the National Center for Research and Development.

He is the scientific supervisor of the BioMat section of the SMART-MAT ​​Scientific Club operating at the Faculty of Materials Science and Physics of the CUT. Manages a student team as part of the FutureLab project PK "Composite biomaterials for medical applications" and is implementing the project "Polymer biomaterials as a carrier of active substances for medical applications" financed from the MEiN program "Student scientific groups create innovations". She was involved for 3 years in the implementation of the TEAM-NET project "Multifunctional biologically active composites for applications in regenerative medicine of the skeletal system" (POIR 04.04.00-00-16D7/18), within which she carried out research for her doctoral thesis. Currently, she is employed in the OPUS project "Hierarchical approach to osteochondral tissue engineering" (UMO-2022/45/B /ST8/02557). She actively participates in the life and promotion of the university, organized shows for the Scientists' Night 2022 and the first National Materials Engineering Day. She appeared during the Open Day of the Krakow University of Technology in the section "Women's Power - Technical studies are for girls", convincing high school graduates to choose exact sciences.
