Nina Franko

I was born in 1990 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.  I started my studies with bachelor's degree in laboratory biomedicine and continued with master’s study of industrial pharmacy at Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Ljubljana, from where I graduated in 2015. In the meantime, I was being excited about research and academic work, so I voluntarily participated in research group and helped teaching younger students as a laboratory demonstrator. I finished my studies with master thesis titled Influence of the first and second generation antiepileptic drugs on oxidative stress development in THP-1 cells under the supervision of asocc. prof. dr. Tomaž Vovk.  In 2014, I was accepted for an internship in pharmaceutical microbiology at Faculty of pharmacy, University of Helsinki, as a part of Individual mobility project, organized by European pharmaceutical students’ association. During my undergraduate years, I participated in several international events organized by Slovenian and European pharmaceutical students’ associations, few times also as a member of reception committee. In my free time, I enjoy going to the theatre, reading poetry and running.
