Aleksandra Gąsecka

My name is Aleksandra Gasecka and I am a cardiologist in training and a PhD student at the 1st Chair and Department of Cardiology of the Medical University of Warsaw, Poland, and at the Laboratory of Experimental Clinical Chemistry in the Academic Medical Center of the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I am interested in extracellular vesicles as biomarkers for cardiovascular disease. This website contains information related to my research interests and other activities. Furthermore, you can find an overview of my publications.
