Biography:

Jacek Szczygielski was born on August 22, 1978 in Łuków, Poland. He pursued a career in medicine, studying and graduating at the Medical University of Lublin. From the very beginning of his medical education, he focused his clinical interest on the neurosurgery and neurosurgical intensive care. He early defined his main area of research as clinical and experimental neurotrauma. Starting 2002 he has collaborated with Saarland University, Germany and developed several projects dealing with effects of decompressive craniectomy and hypothermia after experimental traumatic brain injury. As research fellow of European Graduate School of Neuroscience (EURON) he has been involved in research targeted on impact of brain trauma on subsequent neurodegeneration. These efforts were concluded in 2007 with the MD-Thesis: "Impact of the Traumatic Brain Injury on development of Alzheimer’s disease. An experimental study in APP transgenic mice".

Dr. Szczygielski currently works as the junior consultant neurosurgeon at the Saarland University Medical Center in Homburg. He is an active member of multiple neurosurgical societies, including , Euroacademia Multidisciplinaria Neurotraumatologica (EMN), European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS), German Society of Neurosurgery (DGNC) and German Society for Neurointensive Care and Emergency Medicine (DGNI). His previous work has been presented during multiple international lectures and published (Acta Neurochirurgica, Journal of Neurotrauma).
