Biography
Michal H. Wrobel is currently Associate Professor at the Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Olsztyn (Poland). He earned his MSc of Biology at the University of Warmia and Masury in Olsztyn, in 2002, and his PhD in Faculty of Biology from the University of Warmia and Masury in Olsztyn, in 2008. In his thesis work he pioneered the adverse effect of chlorinated xenobiotics (polichlorinated biphenyls and pesticides) on bovine myometrial contractions. After completing his MSc, Michal H. Wrobel accepted a position as Assistant in Department of Cattle Physiology and Endocrinology of the Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research, Polish Academy of Sciences.

Research Interest
The adverse effect of environmental pollutants (pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls) on reproductive processes in cow. It was found that the chloroorganic xenobiotics affect the force of myometrial contractions in cattle in vitro. Moreover, the impairment of synthesis and secretion of ovarian oxytocin (OT) and uterine prostaglandin (PG) F2? tend be a part of the mechanism of the xenobiotics adverse effect on disruption of uterine contractions regulation.
