|Head: Prof. Dr. Brigita Lenarcic|
The Chair of Biochemistry is located at the J. Stefan Institute (JSI) and is closely linked to JSI Departments of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The only undergraduate Biochemistry programme in Slovenia is taught at the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology in Ljubljana since 1998/99. It is a 4 year programme + preparation of the B.Sc. thesis in the 5th year.
Lecturer of biochemistry for students of pharmacy, chemistry and biochemistry. Since October 2005, she is vice-dean of the FCCT.
Professor Brigita Lenarcic is lecturer of biochemistry and enzymatics. In 2001, Dr. Lenarcic was awarded by ISI as most cited Slovenian woman scientist in the period 1991-2001. Since 2005, she is head of the Biochemistry Chair.
