Short curriculum vitae
In 2013, Michał Hryciuk graduated from a biotechnology program at Poznan University of Life Sciences. Afterwards he was employed at GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals S.A. as a quality assurance specialist. In 2016, Michał started his doctoral project on corpus luteum in felines. Within the project Michał establishes an isolation method for steroidogenic luteal cells and describes cell culture conditions. In addition he functionally characterizes luteal cells (e.g. gene expression, enzyme activity) This will allow for in vitro functional testing of potential luteolytic and luteotrophic factors. The overall aim of his project is to better understand corpus luteum life cycle in Felids and to elucidate the phenomenon behind persistent corpus luteum in lynxes.
