Agnieszka Daca

Agnieszka Daca was born in 1982 in Świecie, Poland. She prepared and defended her PhD degree thesis in 2011 from the Medical University of Gdańsk and discussed the immunological changes observed in the blood of patients with SLE. After her PhD degree defense, the cooperation of Tomasz Jarzembowski and the experiments characterizing bacteria virulence traits and their interaction with immune system cells have started, resulting in the designation of diagnostic method assessing virulence potential of bacteria isolated from the urine of immunocompromised patients. These experiments have also turned her attention to innate immune system changes in patients with lupus nephritis. Currently, she is working as an assistant professor at the Department of Pathology and Experimental Rheumatology, Medical University of Gdańsk. She is also a member of ESCMID.
