Foraminifera are single-celled organisms, whose shells can have extremely elaborate shapes. Researchers, including scientists from Kraków, took a sneak peek at the cellular mechanisms that allow Foraminifera to add new "rooms" to their capsule apartments. This research inspires the creation of materials of the future.

There is a reason why quantum properties seem extremely exotic: our senses simply cannot see them in the world around us. It turns out, however, that the boundary between exotic quantum reality and classical reality does not have to be as strict as it may seem. Researchers from Cracow, Poland, have shown that there can be quantum states that on one hand exhibit the most characteristic of quantum features, whilst being as close to classical states as is possible in quantum mechanics.

We are sure you will find the numerous contributions from top-notch scholars and experts well-focused and highly illuminating.
People with tendency to procrastinate - those who tend to postpone important matters "until tomorrow" - process their mistakes differently than people who do not delay. This was demonstrated in brain studies conducted by Dr. Marek Wypych from the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology.
Professor Maciej Wojtkowski from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences and Professor Krzysztof Palczewski from the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine has received financing to the tune of nearly PLN 35 million from the Foundation of Polish Science for the International Research Agendas Program. Researchers will create an International Center for Translational Eye Research (ICTER), which will deal with the dynamics and plasticity of the human eye.
Scientists estimate that approximately 631 million mammals and almost 144 million birds in Poland fall victim to cats every year. They emphasize that cats’ activity has a negative impact on biodiversity and on endangered species of birds.
