FCCT Biochemistry Lab
University of Ljubljana, Slovenia
FCCT Biochemistry Lab is formally organized as Biochemistry Chair (in the traditional European meaning of the word) and is involved in teaching biochemistry courses for students of chemistry, pharmacy, biochemistry and laboratory biomedicine. We also teach enzymology, recombinant DNA technology and conduct in part several other theoretical and practical courses.
Our research is focused on two main topics: proteinases & inhibitors and snake toxins & evolution. For decades, research work was conduced within the J. Stefan Institute Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Additionally, we are planning to start our own topic on allergens and a collaboration on humanization of monoclonal antibodies.
