In 2000 she has received the doctoral degree in biochemistry at Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics of Polish Academy of Sciences (supervised by Prof. Magdalena Boguta). From 2001-2009 she has worked at the University of Freiburg as a postdoc (with Prof. Nikolaus Pfanner) and head of a research group. Since 2009 she has been based at the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Warsaw, Poland, where she was the group leader of the Laboratory of Mitochondrial Biogenesis. In 2014 she was awarded the title of full professor by the President of Republic of Poland. In 2016 she held the position of Deputy Director for Development at the International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology. In 2017 Agnieszka Chacinska and her group has moved to the Centre of New Technologies, University of Warsaw, where she is holding the position of Director and a research group leader.
