Alumni stories: Katarzyna Gancarz Alumni stories: Katarzyna Gancarz
What is your best memory of studying at the Jagiellonian University? Definitely a great atmosphere created by the staff of the Faculty of Pharmacy’s Department of Initial Pharmacological Research, where I wrote my Master’s thesis. Expert support provided by my supervisors, prof. dr hab. Jacek Sapa and Dr. Leszek Nowiński at every stage of the research was invaluable to me. I have very fond memories of that time.
