PIOTR CYSEWSKI, PHD, DSCI. is Director of the Physical Chemistry Department, Ludwik Rydygier Collegium Medicum of Bydgoszcz, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, ul. Kurpińskiego 5, 85-950 Bydgoszcz, Poland. Graduate of the Nicolaus Copernicus University in 1984, he presented his PhD dissertation at this University four years later. In 2000, he reached the DSci level at the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences in Poznań. Since 2006, he has been holding the Professor position at the Nicolaus Copernicus University. Also since 2004, he has been Professor of the University of Technology and Natural Sciences in Bydgoszcz. He utilizes molecular modeling tools to describe properties of bioorganic compounds. Apart from hydroxyl radical analogues of nucleobases also mechanisms of radical polymerizations, aromatic properties of organic compounds, stacking interactions, recognition patterns, telomeric B-DNA structure and dynamics are his particular interest. Main scientific interests comprise (i) molecular basis of observed biochemical consequences of free radical modified nucleobases and nucleosides, especially tautomeric equilibriums, protolytic properties, coding abilities, inter-strand and intra-strand stacking, N-glycosidic bond stabilities, etc. (ii) structural and energetic diversities of modified double stranded DNA in different polymorphic forms (iii) environment influence on the heterogeneities of aromaticities of amino acids, canonical and modified nucleobases and (iv) intermolecular interactions with amino acids as the source of recognition of modified nucleobases. He is an author of 65 papers in peer reviewed journals.
