Izabela Gutowska, PhD, Associate Professor at the Department of Biochemistry and Human Nutrition, Pomeranian Medical University in Szczecin.
The author and co-author of 259 scientific publications with the total impact factor: 167.188. Her research interests, associated with broadly understood biochemistry, from the beginning have concerned mineral metabolism of humans and animals, with particular emphasis on fluoride metabolism. Much of the research has addressed the impact of various factors on the metabolism of trace elements in humans and animals. In parallel with research on ecotoxicology and mineral metabolism in human and animal tissues, she also researched fatty acids and their metabolites in vitro and in vivo. For several years, she have been mainly interested in the effect of fluoride and lead on the metabolism of eicosanoids in macrophages and in brain, which may lead to the development of inflammatory-proliferative process.
