Prof. Henryk Skarzyński accepted the award.
– We are all aware how important are hearing, speech and vision in a process of communication. Disorders of any of these senses, undetected early enough, may negatively affect the development of a child and cause the isolation. Thanks to the various screening tests implemented on the Platform the dysfunctions within these senses can be relatively easy detected. The Platform has been developed thanks to the hard work and passion of few young scientists from the Institute of Physiology and Pathology of Hearing and the Institute of Sensory Organs. They should be congratulated – said Prof. H. Skarzyński while accepting the award.
