Assist. Prof. Dr. Adna Asic shared a podium with the winners of the Nobel Prize and presented her study titled “Population study of thrombophilic markers and pharmacogenetic warfarin prevalence markers in Bosnia and Herzegovina”. This study is part of her doctoral dissertation, which she conducted under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Damir Marjanovic and Prof. Dr. Dragana Primorca. She talked about the only pharmacogenomic study in Bosnia and Herzegovina conducted so far, which aims to determine the frequency of alleles and genotypes of the most common genetic markers of the risk of inherited thrombophilia, as well as the prevalence of genetic markers for the differential speed of warfarin metabolism in the general population.
Our university had a team of 9 participants at the conference that presented their latest research through poster sessions but also gained additional knowledge from the incredible lectures of the world’s leading scientists and winners of the Nobel Prize, and established important links for their future research.
