Dr. Pawel Grochulski obtained his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry at the Lodz University of Technology, Poland (1988). He completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Medical Foundation of Buffalo (now Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute), USA. He then joined the Macromolecular Structure Group at the NRC Biotechnology Research Institute (BRI) in Montreal, Canada.  In 1994, he obtained his D.Sc. from the Lodz University of Technology.  From 1998-2000, he worked for BioMep Inc. (now Enobia Pharma) as a senior crystallographer. In 2000, he became a Staff Scientist and later Senior Scientist at the Canadian Light Source. He was responsible for designing and building the first phase of CMCF beamlines, and established the CMCF Beamteam. Since 2015, he has served as the Science Manager of the Biological and Life Sciences Department supervising BMIT, BioXAS, CMCF and Mid-IR beamlines. Pawel’s research interests include structure-function relationships of macromolecules and use of synchrotron radiation in structural biology. He is a coauthor of over 100 scientific papers, is an Adjunct Professor of Pharmacy at the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition of the University of Saskatchewan, and serves on the SOLARIS Science Advisory Committee.
