Profile

Sandra Šupraha Goreta, PhD is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. She teaches graduate courses Biological Chemistry, Molecular biology with the genetic engineering, Analytical Biochemistry, Modern biochemical techniques and Diagnosis and treatment of viral infections. Her main scientific interest is the glycobiology research focusing on the frequency of mutations and polymorphisms in genes related to congenital disorders of glycosylation. She was engaged in the research of miRNA expression in induced apoptosis of tumour cells. She works on studying biological characteristic of cf DNA. She is co-leader of the postgraduate specialist studies Molecular Diagnostics and associate on the course ̎Principles and methods of molecular diagnostics ̎.
