Personal information

Since 2022, an expert on behalf of the Ministry of Climate and Environment of the Republic of Poland delegated to the Working Group on Pollinators, which is a part of the European Commission Biodiversity Platform (EUBP).

Since 2020, the originator and coordinator of the EU Green week in Lublin, entitled: "Air, Earth and Water - a walk among elements".


Dr hab. Aneta A. Ptaszynska, prof. UMCS is associate professor at Maria Curie-Skłodowska University (UMCS) in Poland.

AAP research interests focus on wild pollinators and their protection especially under Anthropogenic landscapes. She is also interested in immunology of honey bee colonies and is working on new therapeutic substances against bee pathogenic fungi belonging to the phyla Microsporidia (as Nosema) and Ascomycota (especially Candida). She is also looking for substance to protect bees against pesticides.

AAP made her habilitation in 2017 at honey bees pathogen studies entitled ”New methods of identifying Nosema apis and Nosema ceranae, and the influence of nosemosis on intestinal microorganisms in the honeybe“. Her research has become the basis for three patent applications concerning innovative preparations for the honeybee and two implementations of these preparations. Since 2011 she has been conducting experimental work on honeybee microbiome, diseases, and synthetic as well as natural substances that can be the basis for combating honeybee diseases and improving the honeybee immune system. She and her team won the International EIFFEL Prize awarded by the French Federation of Inventors at the 117th International Fair of Inventions, CONCOURS LÉPINE 2018 in Paris for the patent application No. P.423363, the gold medal awarded by World Invention Intellectual Property Associations (WIIPA) at the Euroinvent European Exhibition of Creativity and Invention 17-19 May 2018 in Iasi, Romania for patent application No. P.423363 and silver medal awarded by the 70th International Fair "Ideas, Inventions, New Products" iENA in Nuremberg, Germany for patent application no. P.415155. In 2017 she benefited by a GB-TAF-7137, SYNTHESYS Project funding, Access Call 4, 13 October 2016, under the funding of the European Commission's Infrastructure Action at Natural History Museum in London, UK. Moreover, in years 2017-2018 AAP led two grants for pre-implementation support for the results of scientific research and development works under the "Incubator of Innovation".


Research issues

1. Preparations to protect honeybees against pesticides.

2. Research on honeybee fungal pathogens belonging to the phyla Microsporidia and Ascomycota

  • Parasitic fungi of honey bee (Apis mellifera) and diseases caused by them: nosemosis (pathogens: Nosema apis, Nosema ceranae), chalkbrood (pathogen: Ascosphaera apis), stonebrood (pathogens: Aspergillus flavus, A. fumigatus, A. niger ).
  • New therapeutic substances against pathogenic fungi from the genera: Nosema and Candida.
