Successes of our early stage researchers
Anže Smole Receives the Jesenko Award for the Top Graduate of Undergraduate Studies
The Award Ceremony for the Jesenko Awards and the Biotechnical Faculty’s Recognition Awards, 14 March 2011
On Monday, 14 March 2011, the Assembly Hall hosted the formal Award Ceremony for the JESENKO AWARDS and the BIOTECHNICAL FACULTY’S RECOGNITION AWARDS.
The Jesenko Award for the Top Graduate of Undergraduate Studies in the 2010 calendar year went to Anže Smole, an early stage researcher at the Laboratory of Biotechnology.
Congratulations to Damjan Makuc who is this year's SMASH Poster Prize Winner, sponsored by the journal, Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry. Damjan won the prize with his poster, "NMR Study on Conformational Preferences of Diindolylurea and Diindolylthiourea Anion Receptors".
Damjan is a PhD student at the Slovenian NMR Centre at the National Institute of Chemistry in Ljubljana. He defended his graduation thesis "Comparison of properties of cathepsin S expressed in bacterium Escherichia coli and yeast Pichia pastoris" at the University of Ljubljana. After graduation he joined Slovenian NMR Centre, where he concentrated on studies of conformational properties of small molecules with the use of high resolution NMR spectroscopy. His PhD research includes structural analyses of anion receptors based on an indole scaffold, their conformational preorganization as well as conformational changes upon addition of anions. NMR studies are corroborated with energetic preferences established by ab initio calculations.
Damjan wins a free year's subscription to Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry.
