Editorial engagements

Prof. Dariusz Skarżyński has been invited to be the Guest Editor of the special issue on Eicosanoids and other Fatty Acid Metabolites in Female Reproduction: from Physiology to Clinical Practice  for the International Journal of Endocrinology (IF=2,51; Hindawi publishing). In this special issue, the editorial board (D.J. Skarzyński, G.M. Ferreira-Dias, S. Ulbrich, B. Jalali) intends to publish research articles giving new insights into understanding physiopathological role and mechanism by which each eicosanoid can preferentially recognize one or more receptors to act in reproductive function (from ovulation to parturition), aiming to provide a comprehensive update on the studies in this area.

„L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science” initiative strives to support and recognize accomplished women researchers, to encourage more young women to enter the profession and to assist them once their careers are in progress. Female scientists distinguished in the competition represent various disciplines, yet are united by the excellent level of research they perform and the papers they publish. Their studies are also marked by a considerable developmental potential and a high technology readiness level.

In this year’s, 17th, edition of the contest jury recognized three habilitation scholarships. Dr. Anna Michalska from the Institute PAS in Olsztyn was awarded for her research on the technology of obtaining fruit powders with a desired content of prohealth bioactive compounds. Such powders, derived from natural fruit, may become an alternative for artificial additives or supplements commonly used in the food industry. This type of scholarship was also awarded to Dr. Agnieszka Gajewicz from the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Gdańsk, and Dr. Marta Mańczuk from the Maria Skłodowska – Curie Memorial Cancer Centre in Warsaw.

Laureates of the scholarship are annually chosen by an independent body of 16 recognized researchers who represent different scientific areas and research institutions throughout Poland. So far 87 women researchers have been awarded this prestigious scholarship.
