Master thesis defense of Jovana Lovren



One of our students from Serbia, Jovana Lovren, successfuly finished and defended her Master thesis `Cryopreservation of spermatogonia in Common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.)` at the Department of Biology and Ecology of the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Novi Sad in Serbia. She spent with us more than one month working in our laboratories as well as on field in Hungary and Slovenia. We are  proud on our collaboration and want to congratulate Jovana.
Ákos and Jelena together with dr Desanka Kostić and dr Nebojša Andrić were members of the defense committee, while dr Željko Popović was the supervisor.

Trip to Tokyo



In the period between September 16th and 26th Jelena and Zoran were in Tokyo in their second visit to the Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology and the lab of prof. Goro Yoshizaki. 

During this stay they perform some experiments in collaboration with prof. Yoshizaki`s team and participated at the International Symposium `Fisheries Sciences for Future Generations` organized by the Japanese Society of Fisheries Sciences. More than 900 delegates from all over the world attended this Symposium and contributed with 750 presentations during 14 sessions.  It was our pleasure to be part of this outstanding meeting. We would like to thank to prof. Yoshizaki and his team for invitation and good work once again.
