Jan Poleszczuk (born 1986)[1] is a Polish mathematician and biologist known for his contributions in mathematical biology. As a mathematician working in the field of oncology, he supports biologists, medical doctors, physicists and chemists. His aim is to understand how gene mutations interact and how they affect cancer growth. His work is focused on increasing the effectiveness of existing therapies (radiotherapy and chemotherapy), which may improve the situation of many more patients more quickly than with new targeted drug therapies with limited effects. In radiotherapy, he created a model aimed at selecting, from among many metastases, this tumor in the patient's body, the irradiation of which will maximize the overall effectiveness of the therapy. He also used mathematical and computer methods to calculate and propose radiation therapy plans to harm the cancer as much as possible but preserve healthy tissues and organs. He is currently working on improving the dosage of chemotherapy so that it does not result in tumor resistance to treatment in relapses. He is a member of Polish Mathematical Society (Treasurer for years 2017-2020), Polish Radiation Research Society, Society for Mathematical Biology and American Association for Cancer Research.

Biography

In June 2010, he graduated in Mathematics at Warsaw University, Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics, M.Sc. with specialty: Mathematical Methods in Biology and Social Sciences based on the theses “Modeling of tumor angiogenesis and antiangiogenic therapy on the basis of Hahnfeldt et al. mode". He defended the Ph.D. in Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering at Faculty of Automatic Control, Electronics and Computer Science, Silesian University of Technology, based on dissertation: “Mathematical modeling of cancer cell response to therapy induced stress” February 2014 and the Ph.D. in Mathematics at Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics, University of Warsaw, based on thesis “Exploring potential tumor growth modulating mechanisms in cells having different status of TP53 gene” in December2015. The author and co-author of more than 44 scientific articles.[4]
