Dorota Skowronska-Krawczyk, Ph.D.

Associate Project Scientist of Ophthalmology

Dorota Skowronska-Krawczyk, Ph.D. is originally from Lodz, Poland. She was awarded her Ph.D. at the University of Geneva and conducted post doctoral research at the Eye Hospital Jules Gonin and UCSD in the laboratory of Michael G. Rosenfeld, PhD, in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine.

Dr. Skowronska-Krawczyk focuses her research on deciphering molecular mechanisms underlying retina biology using molecular and cellular approaches. She has developed and applied state-of the art technologies to study the in vivo association of transcription factors with their target regulatory elements in the retina. She continues to use her expertise to study genome-wide roles of key transcriptional regulators and changes in chromatin organization during organogenesis and, more recently, to describe the molecular pathways involved in glaucoma. Dr. Skowronska-Krawczyk has also studied nuclear organization and the 3D structure of the genome, and roles they play in the regulation of gene expression underlying natural and pathological processes.
