Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki has been instrumental in the development and growth of Cellular Medicine research. She is a leading biomedical researcher in the development of nutritional approaches in various aspects of health and disease.
Dr. Niedzwiecki has a doctorate degree in biochemistry from the University of Warsaw, Poland, where she started her research and academic career. Her wide scientific interests have been pursued at the world’s leading universities, such as the Rockefeller University in New York (research conducted with the Nobel Laureate G. M. Edelman) and the University of Toronto in Canada. Dr. Niedzwiecki’s areas of scientific expertise include molecular aspects of aging, cellular metabolism, nutrition, cardiovascular disease, cancer and others.
She is the former Head of Cardiovascular Research at the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine in California. Her work with the laureate of two Nobel Prizes, the late Dr. Linus Pauling, provided significant reinforcement to Dr. Rath’s groundbreaking approach to heart disease.
During her scientific career, Dr. Niedzwiecki has been inspired by Dr. Rath’s scientific ideas, which were instrumental in shifting her research focus to the field of micronutrients and cardiovascular disease. She has been working with Dr Rath for about 15 years in developing and implementing various research projects and ideas. Currently she is working in the capacity of the CEO and Director of Research at the Dr. Rath Research Institute in California.
Throughout her career, Dr. Niedzwiecki has won numerous awards and research grants for her research into the biochemical link between disease and nutrients. She has over 90 original research contributions published in prestigious professional journals, including the Journal of Biological Chemistry, Arteriosclerosis, and Molecular Cell Biology, as book chapters and other scientific and popular research publications. Together with Dr. Rath she has been deeply involved in natural health education efforts worldwide. She has conducted numerous scientific and public presentations in the US, Germany, Holland, Poland, Greece, South Africa and other countries and has published numerous monographs, and articles about various aspects of health.
She is a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition and the member of the American Heart Association, American Medical Women’s Association, Council on Arteriosclerosis, the American Society for Cell Biology and the American Academy for the Advancement of Science.
Dr. Niedzwiecki’s leadership and insights at the Dr. Rath Research Institute are helping to propel the research breakthroughs in the area of Cellular Medicine.
