Ana Koren is a biotechnologist at Golnik Clinic studying the onset and progression of lung cancer. She would have no problem explaining the epithelial-mesenchymal transition to Jon Bon Jovi over pizza, she considers The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks a good intro into cell lines and would pick The Summer Without Men as her go-to summer read. Let us also link to the abstract of Ana’s paper on lung cancer stem cells (Ana Koren et al., 2013).
Author: LUKA AUSEC, holds a doctorate in biosciences and can fluently read DNA – and sometimes literature. Enthusiastic about bending the body and the mind in all directions – and sometimes inwards. Enjoys spreading inspiring ideas – sometimes as tweets.
