Cyanobacteria, commonly known as blue-green algae, which occur in the sea and lakes in the summer, are a danger to swimmers because the algae’s metabolites are hazardous to health. Scientists from the UWM are conducting research on using them for cancer treatment, among other purposes.
Spelt is a crop forgotten by farmers and agricultural technology for five centuries. Prof. Dariusz Choszcz from the Faculty of Technical Sciences has built a machine for its cleaning and sorting, offering an innovative solution on a global scale.
Tomasz Waśniewski, MD PhD, and his team performed a successful, pioneering surgery for suppressing labour in a twin pregnancy after the miscarriage of one, dead foetus. In this way, by delaying delivery for almost 12 weeks, he saved the life of the second foetus.

Prof. Danuta Kruk from the Chair of the Relativistic Physics in the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Studies UWM became a finalist in the prestigious scientific Innovation Radar prize, initiated by the European Commission.
Is it possible that yeast, i.e. microorganisms well-known in the baking, brewing and alcohol-distilling industries, could be a poison? Indeed, they can; and this poison may be very useful in farming. This has been proven, for the first time in Poland and Europe, by Professor Urszula Wachowska, PhD. at the University of Warmia and Mazury (UWM).
Three young UWM researchers will receive scholarships funded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education for young outstanding scientists. These are: Dr inż. Justyna Możejko-Ciesielska, Dr Tomasz Stenzel and Dr Mikołaj Tarkowski.
The Teaching Hospital at the University of Warmia and Mazury is the first site in Europe where an experimental surgery of implantation of brain stimulants to comatose patients was carried out. Two months on, the doctors talk of a success.
