Piotr Ladyzynski received the M.Sc. degree in mechanics from the Warsaw University of Technology in 1990. He started his professional career in biomedical engineering at the Nalecz Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering PAS (IBBE PAS) in 1991. He received the Ph.D. degree with distinctions in technical sciences from the IBBE PAS in 1997, and D.Sc. degree in 2009. Dr. Ladyzynski worked for 12 months at the Nara Institute of Science and Technology (Japan) as a postdoc in 2000-2001. Since 2009, Dr. Ladyzynski has been Professor of the IBBE PAS. He is an author of 112 publications including monographs, chapters, journal papers and materials in conference proceedings. He authored 4 national patents, 1 industrial standard and 8 expert reports. He received a few scientific awards including the Innovation for Health 2009 Award in Innovative Medical Technologies category and two awards for scientific achievements from the Rector of the Medical University of Warsaw. He has been the President of the European Society for Artificial Organs since 2019, and the Chairman of the Industry Working Group of the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering since 2016. He has been the Editor-in-Chief of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering (IF = 2.5) since 2017.

Dorota G. Pijanowska is a full professor at the Nalecz Institute of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering, Polish Academy of Sciences (IBBE PAS), where she received PhD and DSc degrees (in 1996 and 2006, respectively). Now she is a deputy director for research at IBBE PAS. The postdoctoral research she realized at University of Twente (Enschede, The Netherlands). Her main research is focused on development of bioanalytical microtools and affinity-based recognition layers with various bioreceptors (e.g. DNA, antibodies) for non-specific and specific markers of cardiovascular, cancer and Alzheimer diseases as well as for bioactive substances (cytostatics, psychoactive drugs). These include analysis of target molecule - (bio)receptor interaction. Recent research concern microfluidic based systems for biomedical applications, in particular for determination of selected markers in biological samples of very small volume. She was a PI in a project as part of the Innovative Economy Operational Program, 2009-2015 and many other founded by various grant-giving agencies. She is a coauthor of 7 patents, including 3 US patents. She has received award from the President the Polish Academy of Sciences and Siemens Award.
