Samantha Cristoforetti

She holds a degree in Engineering, but above all she is the first Italian astronaut who joined the European Space Agency. As a result of her 199 day long stay in space, she holds two records: one for the longest time a female astronaut has spent in space and another one for the the longest time a European astronaut has spent in space (199 days).

BJB4Internet access is now taken for granted on practically every corner of Slovenia. For this, we can thank our scientist Borka Jerman Blažič, who 25 years ago, during the Slovenian independence, practically single-handedly brought internet to our country. Slovenia thus became one of only sixteen countries in the world with an internet connection.

Ασχολούμαι με τον σχεδιασμό αντικαρκινικών φαρμάκων μέσω υπολογιστή. Ο κάθε άνθρωπος μπορεί να εμφανίσει διαφορετικό υπο-τύπο καρκίνου για διαφορετικούς λόγους - είτε λόγω μίας συγκεκριμένης μετάλλαξης σε μία πρωτεΐνη είτε λόγω υπερ-έκφρασης ή αλλαγής στη σηματοδότηση μίας άλλης πρωτεΐνης. Τα νέα φάρμακα στοχεύουν στο συγκεκριμένο τύπο καρκίνου που εμφανίζει ο ασθενής και δεν εντάσσονται στην κατηγορία της χημειοθεραπείας γιατί έχουν συγκεκριμένο στόχο. Ο στόχος αυτός συνήθως είναι μια πρωτεΐνη η οποία είναι απαραίτητη για την ανάπτυξη του καρκινικού κυττάρου. Αν μπλοκάρουμε αυτή τη συγκεκριμένη πρωτεΐνη με ένα χημικό μόριο-φάρμακο τότε μπορούμε να σταματήσουμε την εξέλιξη του καρκίνου. Δουλεύουμε λοιπόν για να εξελίξουμε φάρμακα συγκεκριμένα για κάθε τύπο, ο οποίος διαγιγνώσκεται μετά από βιοψία, και όχι γενικά, όπως συμβαίνει με τις χημειοθεραπείες” μας εξηγεί, βάζοντάς μας στο κλίμα των ερευνών της.

Αν μπλοκάρουμε αυτή τη συγκεκριμένη πρωτεΐνη με ένα χημικό μόριο-φάρμακο τότε μπορούμε να σταματήσουμε την εξέλιξη του καρκίνου
