Barbara Kramar graduated in Biotechnology at University of Ljubljana and at the same time worked as an intern at Biobanka (a cord blood bank) and as a student research assistant at Biochemical institute of Ljubljana. In the final months before graduation she received an Erasmus placement scholarship and went to Imperial College London for some extra knowledge in laboratory work with adeno-associated viruses. She then continued her studies in Denmark at University of Copenhagen and mastered in Biology – Biotechnology while working as a lab assistant at Plant Defense Genetics lab at University of Copenhagen and Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Disease. She also volunteered and became a board member of a student non-profit organization Synapse – Life Science Connect, which tries to bridge the gap between Life Science academia and industry with plentiful of events throughout the year. Her master thesis was titled “Control of mitochondrial functions and dynamics of Crls1” where she tried to explore a promising field of brown adipose biology, especially looking into the enzyme that synthesizes one of the most abundant phospholipids in inner mitochondrial membrane, Cardiolipin synthase 1. Her master’s thesis group is expecting to publish two papers with Barbara’s name as a co-author.
