Visit to Središće Primary School

On Tuesday, 4th February 2020, we visited the Središće Primary School to show students from grades 1 to 4 what professions are necessary to develop a new drug.

Our team is multidisciplinary and consists of biochemists, chemist, molecular biologists, pharmacist and veterinarian. Each team member introduced themselves and showed the most interesting experiments, and then students were able to ask questions.

Thanks to Headmistress Violeta Vragotuk and the teachers who welcomed us very warmly, and to the students for their willingness to interact.

dr. sc. Ivana Vinković Vrček, mag. med. biochem., explained the importance of biochemists in the developmental pathway of drugs
Nikolina Kalčec, mag. appl. chem, demonstrated the selenium nanoparticles synthesis and thereby
showed what chemists do on a daily base
Krunoslav Ilić, mag. biol. mol., presented the molecular biologists profession
Vedran Micek, dr. med. vet.,
demonstrated laboratory animals treatment with the assistance of a prospective veterinarian
The students tested the basic techniques we use in the lab
