Anna Gałązka is a head of the Department of Agricultural Microbiology at IUNG (since 2013). She is specialized in the evaluation of microbial diversity of soils associated with agricultural practice and environmental protection (research in molecular biology; evaluation of genetic differentiation and identification of microorganisms and characterization of metabolic profile of bacteria and fungi). She is participating in international and several national projects in IUNG, coordinating research project on biological activity and determination of microbial diversity of soil. She was a task manager in Aiming Project „Developing New system of tillage for sustainable agriculture” WND-POIG. 01.03.01-00-042/09 (2010-2013) – Determination of biological activity in soils and executor in projects: N305 080 32/2776 Evaluation of usefulness of Azospirillum spp. and Pseudomonas stutzeri inoculum in increasing of phytoremediation; project CZ.3.22/1.2.00/12.03445, Risk and benefits of application of exogenous organic matter on soil.
