Stanislaw Deja obtained his B.Eng and M.Sc. degrees from the Wroclaw University of Technology. He completed a joint doctoral program carried by Opole University and Wroclaw University of Technology in Poland (2010-2014) and postdoctoral fellowship at UT Southwestern Medical Center (2014-2017). During his doctorate, he led the development of one the first NMR based metabolomics platforms in Poland and successfully implemented it for human studies. Following graduation, he moved to US and completed a Robert A. Welch foundation postdoctoral fellowship in the Advanced Imaging Research Center at UT Southwestern Medical Center, where he worked on development and validation of  combined NMR and MS approaches for metabolic flux quantification. In particular he specializes in use of stable isotope labeled metabolites for metabolic tracing experiments in vivo and ex vivo and mathematical modeling of metabolic networks.
