Ellżbieta HUBNER-WOŹNIAK, PhD Rest in Peace



I am a biochemist, I received a Masters degree at the Department of Biology, Warsaw University (Poland), and a PhD at Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology, Warsaw.

Poland Institution:Professor at the University of Physical Education in Warsaw. For almost 30 years, I have collaborated with Polish Wrestling Federation, conducting physiological and biochemical studies of male and female wrestlers. The results of these studies were published in Polish and international journals, and were applied in practice.

Research interests: assessment of aerobic and anaerobic performance of male and female wrestlers, and application of plasma creatine kinase (CK) activity measurements during training before main tournaments for evaluation of functional status of muscle cells (monitoring of training). It has been

acknowledged that my collaboration with trainers and competitors contributed to the international success of Polish male and female wrestlers.
