Award: "Merit for the City of Lodz"; Scholarship of French Government - Department of Neonatology at the University Hospital in Paris –L’Hopital Antoine Beclere (led by Prof. Michel Dehan), at the Columbia University in New York led by Richard Polin- Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Department of Neonatology in Miami, USA, led by prof. Eduardo Bancalari, the focus of my interests is neonatal immunology and diagnosis and treatment of neonatal sepsis. As the first in Poland (1995), I used granulocyte growth factor (G-CSF) in the treatment of neonatal sepsis complicated by leucopenia. In my research, I compared different schedules of perioperative antibiotic therapy. I examined the non-specific response in the asphyxiated term and preterm neonates. Important part of my work are congenital malformations and neonatal intensive care. Six years ago, I organized the only in Poland ECMO center for neonates with severe respiratory failure.
