Tomasz Brzóska, PhD

Research Assistant Professor of Medicine, Division of Hematology/Oncology


Tomasz obtained his MS in Pharmacy from the Medical University of Bialystok (Bialystok, Poland) in 2009 and his Ph.D. from the Hamamatsu University School of Medicine (Hamamatsu, Japan) in 2013. Subsequently, he worked for two years as an assistant professor at the Hamamatsu University School of Medicine (Hamamatsu, Japan). His research over the last few years has been focused on using intravital confocal microscopy to elucidate the molecular and biophysical mechanisms of interactions between platelets, endothelium, leukocytes, coagulation and fibrinolytic factors in physiological and pathophysiological states. Tomasz joined the Vascular Medicine Institute in January 2016 and he is using in vivo Multi-Photon Excitation enabled intravital fluorescence microscopy to identify the cellular and molecular cues that promote thrombosis and subsequent lung injury in transgenic SCD mice.
