Patrycja Ledwoń in 2018 received her master degree in medicinal chemistry from Faculty of Chemistry, University of Wroclaw (Poland) for the thesis entitled “Synthesis of Safirinium compounds and their application as ionization tags”, prepared under the supervision of dr. Marek Cebrat in the group of prof. Zbigniew Szewczuk. In November 2018 she was accepted as a PhD candidate in Chemical Sciences under the supervision of prof. Rafał Latajka (Faculty of Chemistry, Department of Bioorganic Chemistry, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology in Poland) and in Pharmaceutical Sciences under the supervision of prof. Paolo Rovero (Interdepartmental Research Unit of Peptide and Protein Chemistry and Biology, Department of NEUROFARBA, University of Florence in Italy). She is a participant of BioTechNan – interdisciplinary doctoral studies and internship program, co‑funded by the European Union. The PhD thesis of P. Ledwoń is entitled “Design, synthesis, and biological investigation of new peptides and peptidomimetics of cosmeceutical interest” and is focused on a synthesis, structural analysis, and bioassays of new peptide-based inhibitors of enzymes involved in skin aging process.
Patrycja Ledwoń is a co-author of scientific publications in the field of peptides, the recipient of the European Peptide Society Mobility Fellowship, and the presenting author of various conference communications. In 2021 she was awarded by the Rector of Wroclaw University of Science and Technology for her scientific achievements in 2020/21. In November 2021 the National Science Centre in Poland granted her one-year research project entitled “New Thrombospondin‑1-deriving Peptides as TGF-β Activators of Cosmeceutical Interest”, pursued in the collaboration between Wroclaw University of Science and Technology and University of Florence.
