We attended the Alpe-Adria Rectors Conference – International PhD Scientific Conference „Innovative technologies in biomedicine“organized by the University of Rijeka Doctoral School, which was held from 19th – 20th September 2019 at the University of Rijeka Departments building. We had an opportunity to present our PhD results in front of distinguished international and national scientists from the fields of biomedical research and life science as well as fellow doctoral students.

Iris Car, a PhD student presented poster and oral presentation : "Secretome analysis of BRAF V600E-mutant colon cancer cells with acquired resistance to vemurafenib."



PhD student Petra Grbčić presented a poster and oral presentation titled: "Sphingolipid metabolism is dysregulated in BRAF V600E mutant colon cancer cells resistant to vemurafenib." Her presentation was chosen as the best presentation at the event!





FEBS Advanced Proteomics summer school, held from 28th July-3rd August 2019 in Varna, Italy, was designed to provide graduate students and young postdoctoral scientists from academia and industry with insights into state-of-the-art proteomic technologies and applications in the life sciences.


PhD student Petra Grbčić held an poster presentation : "Proteomic signatures associated with BRAF V600E mutation in colorectal cancer"




PhD student Iris Car attended the 13th Summer School “Mass Spectrometry in Biotechnology and Medicine” (MSBM) which was held at the Centre for Advanced Academic Studies (CAAS), Dubrovnik, Croatia, 7-13 July 2019. She presented her work as a poster and short oral presentation entitled "Optimization of protocol for secretome collection from vemurafenib-resistant BRAFV600E mutant colon cancer cells for mass spectrometry-based proteome analysis".
