Assist. Prof. Dr. Adna Asic from the Department of Genetics and Bioengineering at the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences at International Burch University held a presentation at the 11th ISABS Conference on Forensic and Anthropological Genetics. ISABS is the most prestigious conference in the region in the field of genetics, which covers the latest scientific discoveries and is visited by scientists from all over the world. This year's conference hosted the Nobel Prize winners Adu Yonath, Paul Modrich, Robert Huber and Avram Hershko.
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.
