Young Scientist Medal

Introduced on the initiative of CAS, the Medal is a form of distinction awarded to young scientists for their outstanding achievements in science and technical innovation as well as other creative achievements.

Katarzyna Grabieszkow PhD.

Faculty of Physics at Warsaw University of Technology

Distinguished on 26 June 2012 Medal of the Young Scientist for outstanding achievements in the study of relativistic nuclear collisions, in particular for the development and practical introduction to heavy ion physics of a new research method, consisting in the analysis of non-static fluctuations in the characteristics of emitted particles.

Anna Mietlarek-Kropidłowska, PhD, Eng.

Gdansk University of Technology

Was awarded the Medal for a Young Scientist in 2012 for her outstanding achievements in examining sulphur-rich core complex compounds and their correlations with polymeric materials, and also for working out new precursors for obtaining semi-conductor layers.

Piotr Garstecki, PhD, DSc

Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences

Graduated from the Faculty of Physics at the College of Science, Polish Academy of Sciences (1998), got his PhD in chemistry at the Institute of Physical Chemistry (2002). He spent a few years on a postdoctoral fellowship in George Whitesides’s research group at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Harvard University (2002-2007). He is a co-author of over 60 scientific publications, a few monographs and numerous patented discoveries. He is a winner of many awards: W. Kołosa Award of the Polish Academy of Sciences; Prime Minister’s Award for the best doctoral and DSc dissertations; he received the Minister of Education Scholarship for outstanding young scientists.

Katarzyna Pawlak, PhD, Eng.

Faculty of Chemistry at Warsaw University of Technology

Was awarded the Medal for Young Scientist in 2010 for her work in the area of identification of bioligands in materials of special interest to human, which enabled toxicity control of widely-defined environment, also for designing new courses of action for enhancing the quality of life.

Katarzyna Chojnacka, PhD, DSc, Eng.

Faculty of Chemistry, Warsaw University of Technology

Was awarded the Young Scientist Medal in 2008 for a practical use of biosorption and bioaccumulation mechanisms in the environment- and health-friendly applications.

Maciej Wojtkowski, PhD

Faculty of Physics, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun

Was awarded the Young Scientist Medal in 2007 for constructing an optical tomograph for researching retina, and for his contribution to ophthalmological research development.
