Brief presentation of the institution

 The Faculty of Health Sciences (UP FHS is an autonomous member of the University of Primorska. It offers two Bachelor study programmes: Nursing Care and Nutritional Counselling- Dietetics, and as well the 2 Master programmes in Nursing and in Dietetics. Apart from the education UP FHS is also a research organization, holding funds from the Slovenian Research Agency and funds from the international level. The ongoing research work covers the following areas: oncology, orthopaedics-prosthetics, dietetics, nursing and elderly care. Its mission is to implement the undergraduate and postgraduate education in health care and nutritional counselling-dietetics and to simultaneously carry out a fundamental, applied and advanced research work in the field of conservation and recovery of health and health related issues. Some of the best Slovenian and International experts in their field participate in the educational as well as research process at the Faculty. The Faculty provides a continuous cooperation between the teaching staff and researchers as well as various partner Institutions. This strong cooperation between reseacrh and education is not transmitted just on the under and post-graduate students but-through lifelong learning and sustainable development on other human resources in the field of health sciences as well.

The members of the Department of Nursing covers expert knowledge on: different area in nursing such as medical and surgical nursing, nursing of elderly people, paediatrics nursing, gynaecology and obstetrics, mental health, physiotherapy and rehabilitation, ethics in nursing, palliative care, public health, health promotion and health education, nursing management and quality of health services, teaching methods with ICT, simulations in healthcare, psychology and sociology.

Main Electroporation related topics

Evaluation of effects of electroporation and electrochemotherapy on the cytoskeleton of cultured human endothelial cells.

Design, preparation and evaluation of plasmid DNA for effective and save gene electrotransfer. 

Main Electroporation related research techniques and equipment

  • in-ouse built electroporator (UL Faculty of Electrical Engineering)
  • cell culture lab (incubators, laminar air flow cabinets, spectrofluorimeter for 96 well plates, fluorescence inverted microscope equipped with camera)
  • molecular biology lab (real time PCR equipment, gel electrophoresis for DNA and protein samples, gel doc documentation station)
 

 

Research topics, techniques and equipment not related to Electroporation

Members from the Department of Natural and Medical subjects are performing studies of gene-nutrient interactions: the objective is to determine the relationship between TNF- , IL-6, adiponectin, resistin, and visfatin gene polymorphisms with obesity and investigate whether specific dietary compounds (with anti-inflammatory and/or antioxidant effects intake modulate these associations and how the specific dietary compound modulates adipokines secretion. 

The members of the Department of Nursing covers expert knowledge on: different area in nursing such as medical and surgical nursing, nursing of elderly people, paediatrics nursing, gynaecology and obstetrics, mental health, physiotherapy and rehabilitation, ethics in nursing, palliative care, public health, health promotion and health education, nursing management and quality of health services, teaching methods with ICT, simulations in healthcare, psychology and sociology.
