Meetup on 11th November 2021:

It is time to bring together our Polish Scientific Network in Boston.

You are welcome to join us for the Independence Day on November 11th, which will take place in Cambridge starting at 6 pm.
We will have a special book talk by Adam J. Sulkowski, Associate Professor of Law and Sustainability at Babson College (USA), who recently published Extreme Entrepreneurship: Inspiring Life and Business Lessons from Entrepreneurs and Startups around the World.

From war zones to jungles to slums to where capitalism is illegal, this book contains true stories of people making their startups work in some of the most challenging contexts. Written by an award-winning professor at a top-ranked entrepreneurship school based on his interviews with startup founders in some of the more than 120 countries he has visited, there are no Silicon Valley stories of free office perks here. Instead, you can expect to find uniquely inspiring stories and universal lessons about life and business from interesting people and places around the world.

The event will be hold at 86 Sherman Street, Cambridge.


In collaboration with Polish Club at MIT, we are organizing our seminars @ Stata Center, 32 Vassar St. Cambridge, room MIT 32-144 on MIT campus.
After the talk, we will grab the beer in a local pub, traditionally Meadhall in Cambridge. Please remember to take valid ID.

Who we are:

Polish Scientific Network was initiated in spring 2017 by Mikołaj Słabicki, Jonasz Słomka and Piotr Suwara. 

From autumn 2019 Polish Scientific Network is run by Mikołaj Słabicki and Anna Barnacka.

Mikołaj Słabicki

molecular biologist

Mikołaj Słabicki is a Group Leader at the Cancer Program, Broad Institute and Staff Scientist at Dana–Farber Cancer Institute. Mikołaj is characterizing molecular mechanism of drugs inducing protein degradation.

Anna Barnacka


Anna Barnacka finished her NASA Einstein Fellowship at Harvard in 2018 and transitioned from astrophysics to startups. She is the founder and CEO of MindMics, Inc.

Piotr Suwara


Piotr is a Ph.D. candidate in Mathematics at MIT, working on gauge-theoretic invariants in low-dimensional topology. He also serves as the President of the Polish Club at MIT.

Jonasz Słomka


Jonasz graduated from Physical Applied Mathematics at MIT in June 2018. In September 2018, he joined StockerLab at ETH Zürich as an ETH Postdoctoral Fellow. Jonasz is a former President of the Polish Club at MIT.

We partner with the Polonium Foundation, which is an independent non-governmental organization and brings together top students, researchers and people associated with science.  Polonium Foundation address the negative phenomenon of emigration of highly skilled Polish scientists called “brain drain” and transform it into a favorable two-way flow of people and ideas – “brain circulation”. The main area of Foundation’s activities is focused on building a network of Polish academic and R&D  (research and development) scientists working around the world
