Agnieszka Kamińska is a professor at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences. She completed her PhD at the Department of Chemistry, University of Warsaw in 2004. She is the leader of Plasmonic nanostructures for bio-spectroscopic analysis group. The subject of her research is focusing on the Raman vibrational and the surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy, as well as the surface plasmon resonance for the detection and identification of biomolecules (e.g. protein, DNA, viruses, antigens, antibodies, bacteria, fungi and cancer cells) for analytical and medical applications. In addition, the group of prof. Kaminska is involved in the development of innovative SERS platforms based on femtosecond laser-modified silicon, polymer layers created by electrospinning or polymer membranes with nanopores.
