Andrzej M. Bugaj is a doctor of pharmaceutical sciences (Ph.D.) in pharmaceutical chemistry since 1994. In 1988 he graduated from Faculty of Pharmacy at University of Medical Sciences in Poznań (Poland),  receiving the degree of the master of pharmacy with distinction. He is also specialized in clinical pharmacy and in pharmaceutical analytics. In 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018, during Photobiology School organized by European Photobiology School in Brixen-Bressanone (Italy) he passed an examination “at a PhD level” and he obtained Certificate in Photobiology, signed by Prof. Kristian Berg from School of Pharmacy at the Oslo University. 

Dr's Bugaj research activities have been centered on molecular and cellular aspects of photobiology, photomedicine and photodynamic therapy. He conducted this research in the international research centers in France and Norway, such as the Biophysics and PDT Group of Prof. Johan Moan from Institute for Cancer Research in Rikshospitalet-Radiumhospitalet Medical Center in Oslo, Cancer Photobiology Group of Prof. Thierry Patrice from Department of Laser Therapy in University HospitalCenter in Nantes, and – as a holder of French Government Fellowship – in the Laboratory of Photobiology from Mus´eum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris, under the direction of Prof. Ren´e Santus and Prof. Patrice Morli`ere. During these stays he performed studies of biopharmacy, pharmacokinetics and phototoxicity of drugs used in cancer photodynamic therapy on fibroblasts, keratinocytes, colorectal cancer and glioma cells in cultures and in animal models (mice). The results of these experiments were published in scientific journal from Thomson Reuters’ Master Journal List, such as Photochemistry and Photobiology, Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology Series B, Photochemical and Photobiological Sciences and Photodiagnosis and Photodynamic Therapy. He is an author or co-author of 29 articles published in scientific and professional journals (in 22 as first author, in 14 as only author), an author of 3 book monographs on phototoxicity of porphyrins and on safety and quality of cosmetics, and an co-author of monography “Novel Delivery Systems for Transdermal and Intradermal Drug Delivery” (Ed. Dr. Pharm. Ryan Donnelly, School of Pharmacy, Queen’s University Belfast, UK) Wiley & Sons Ltd., Chichester 2015.
