Nermin presented his work at the 11th ISABS conference in Split


One of the most beautiful Croatian cities, Split, was in in the sign of science this week, where the 11th ISABS Conference on Forensic and Anthropological Genetics and Individualized Medicine was held from 17 th to 22 nd June. The conference was organized by the International Society of Applied Biological Sciences (ISABS), Mayo Clinic and the St. Catherine Specialty Hospital, and in cooperation with the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, featuring a large number of experts and scientists from all over the world, including four Nobel Prize winners who discussed the impact of science and medicine on the future development of society.

This year’s conference was also attended by a member of our Foundation and Genetics and Bioengineering student, Nermin Đuzić, who had the opportunity together with his colleagues from the International Burch University to attend a number of lectures on regenerative medicine, pharmacogenomics, molecular diagnostics, stem cell therapy and gene therapy, immunotherapy, forensic and anthropological genetics.


A special opportunity for active participation Nermin got on the poster session, where he presented his work about MTHFR gene variants and their association with genetic disorders and diseases such as schizophrenia, homocystinuria, neural tube defect and so on. Through the poster session, Nermin also had the opportunity to get familiar with other researches being conducted in the neighboring Balkan countries as well as all around the world. It is also worth mentioning that Nermin’s abstract “MTHFR polymorphisms and associated phenotypes - Evidence from clinical reports” was accepted for publication in the ISABS Conference’s Book of Abstracts.


We congratulate Nermin on his success and engagement, and we wish him good luck in further work and specialization. Bosnia and Herzegovina Futures Foundations always willingly follows the commitment and engagement of its students.
