"Polish Nobel" granted to Prof. Maciej Wojtkowski PDF Print E-mail

 We are happy to inform that member of our society Prof. Maciej Wojtkowski from the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń received the Foundation for Polish Science prize in the field of Mathematics, Physics and Engineering for developing and introducing Fourier domain optical coherence tomography into clinical ophthalmology.

The significance of this remarable achievement can be explained by the fact, that the prize is populary known as a "Polish Nobel".

Maciej Wojtkowski (b.1975) is active in the field of optics and biomedical imaging. His research interest includes optical coherence tomography, low coherence interferometry, phase microsopy, in vivo ophthalmic diagnostics. Dr Wojtkowski has significant impact on development of Fourier domain OCT (FdOCT) technique. The first FdOCT instrument for in vivo retinal imaging was designed and constructed by dr Wojtkowski and his colleagues from the Medical Physics Group at Nicolaus Copernicus University Poland in 2001. Dr Wojtkowski also contributed in development and construction of three clinical prototype high speed and high resolution OCT instruments which are in use in ophthalmology clinics: in Collegium Medicum in Bydgoszcz, Poland, New England Eye Center, Boston, USA, and UPMC Pittsburgh. He is an author of more than 120 publications including 63 full papers in peer reviewed journals. During his academic career Dr Wojtkowski served short internships in Vienna University and University of Kent. He also worked for two years as postdoctoral fellow in joint project between Massachusetts Institute of Technology and New England Eye Center. Currently Maciej Wojtkowski leads a dynamically developing research team – Optical Biomedical Imaging Group at Nicolaus Copernicus University, Toruń, Poland (http://obig.fizyka.umk.pl/).
