miRNA-directed Dendritic Cell Reprogramming


Nejc is a young researcher from Slovenia, with an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry (thesis on protein structure optimization) from University of Ljubljana, and a master’s degree in Biomedicine from Lund University.
In the context of direct reprogramming, Nejc is primarily focused on using miRNAs to improve and better understand the generation of dendritic cells type 1.

Other than most things science and science-adjacent, Nejc’s interests include running, wood carving, talking too much and consuming copious amount of podcasts.
