Polish Alumna A. Kula awarded prestigious POLONEZ Grant

Anna Kula, former PhD student from ICGEB, was recently awarded a grant from the prestigious POLONEZ programme, which is co-financed by the National Science Centre of Poland and Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions, to establish her independent position back in her home Country, at the Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology, the Jagiellonian University in Krakow.

Dr. Kula obtained her PhD in the laboratory of Molecular Virology of the ICGEB with Alessandro Marcello. After obtaining her PhD in 2009 with work on the identification of cellular factors involved in HIV-1 RNA biogenesis, processing and export, she remained as postdoc for additional two years.

In 2013, she moved to Belgium to join the laboratory of Carine Van Lint at the Université Libre de Bruxelles where she continued working on HIV-1, more specifically on studying reactivation potentials of HIV latency-reversing agents as potent strategy to reduce the HIV reservior. Currently she is studying the molecular mechanisms of HIV-1 latency during anti-retroviral therapy to identify pathways that could lead to the rescue of latent virus from cellular reservoirs for complete eradication.


Poland has been a Full Member State of the ICGEB since 1996.
