Since 1947 Alicja Szweykowska has worked in the Department of Botany, first as an assistant, and then, af- ter her PhD, as an assistant professor. She was always interested in the influence of plant hormones, espe- cially from the cytokinin group on the morphogenetic processes as well as the connection of these sub- stances with the mechanisms regulating the processes of synthesis of nucleic acids and proteins. Prof. Szweykowska remained faithful to these subjects and her many scientific publications in renowned scientific journals made her an unquestionable authority both in Poland and abroad and gave her a perma- nent place in the plant physiology textbooks. For many years, Prof. Szweykowska was an active member of Polish and international scientific societies. For her outstanding achievements in the field of botany Prof. Szweykowska received the Wladystaw Szafer medal of Polish Botanical Society in 1995.
