After spending some time abroad, Agnieszka Dobrzyn and Matthias Bochtler will, if they haven't done so already, soon be returning to Poland.
The Pole, Agnieszka Dobrzyn, is associate professor and head of the Laboratory of Cell Signaling and Metabolic Disorders at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology in Warsaw. She studied biology at Warsaw University-Bialystok and received her PhD in the lab of Jan Górski at the Medical University of Bialystok, in 2001. Funded by a postdoctoral grant from the American Heart Association, she joined the lab of James Ntambi at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA. Instead of pursuing her career further in the States, she decided to return to Poland in 2006. In 2007, she became a group leader at the Nencki Institute and received an EMBO Installation Grant. Last year, she also succeeded in the TEAM programme, which is managed by the Foundation for Polish Science and funded with EU Structural Funds. Agnieszka is working on signalling events involved in lipid metabolism and human metabolic diseases.

Agnieszka DobrzynCourtesy, Agnieszka DobrzynEmail ArticleEmail EditorDiscuss in ForumBeaming proudly, biochemist Agnieszka Dobrzyn (pictured left) shows off her newly renovated lab, including her latest expensive toy, a gas chromatograph.She has reason to be proud, and not just of her lab.Hired as a lab director in 2006 at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology in Warsaw, Dobrzyn has won several prestigious grants in the past year, and her five-person lab is publishing their research on obesity-related diabetes regularly."I really believe that I will be able to do something" to contribute to the field, she says, her smile wide and self-assured. Dobrzyn, 35, was not as confident two-and-a-half years ago, when she took a gamble that could have scuttled her career.After a successful postdoc at the University of Wisconsin (UW), Madison , she ignored several job opportunities in the United States to return to Poland, a country with significantly less funding and fewer top research positions.She wanted to be part of the changes she was seeing--or at least hoped she was seeing--in the Polish scientific community, even if it meant taking on some career-related risk. "I have this kind of patriotic thinking that if we won't come back and if we won't make a change, then who will?"--Agnieszka Dobrzyn Dobrzyn says.Taking RisksDobrzyn grew up in Bialystok, a city in the east of Poland.When she was a child, her father, a chemist, worked as a food-safety tester for the government, and she learned to love science by visiting his lab.Later, she attended Warsaw University's Bialystok campus and then earned her Ph.D. in 2001 at the Medical University of Bialystok , studying the effect of exercise on muscle metabolism.
