Short biography:

Tamara Lah Turnšek was born in Ljubljana, Slovenia. She holds a BS in Organic Chemistry, a PhD in Biochemistry, both from the University of Ljubljana.

Prof. Tamara Lah is the Director of National Institute of Biology in Ljubljana, leading the 3rd largest public research institution for natural sciences in Slovenia with approximately 140 employees since 1996. Before becoming Director, she was Head of Department of Genetic Toxicology and Cancer Biology and is still the programme leader of the research group. Since 1999 she is also Associate Professor at Biotechnical Faculty and Faculty of Chemistry Chemical Engineering of the University of Ljubljana, teaching Biochemistry and Cancer Biology and giving a course in Tumour Biology for graduate students in the scope of the Biomedicine study programme at the Medical Faculty. She is an Associate Professor at Josef Stefan Postgraduate School as well.

Tamara Lah started and developed her scientific career at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Josef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, where she worked between 1980 and 1995. Her professional career outside Slovenia has included the positions of Visiting Research Assistant at University of Bonn, Germany, and Visiting Research Associate, at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, where she worked on her PhD thesis in the field of protein biochemistry. She gained her postdoctoral experiences at the Department of Pharmacology, School of Medicine, Wayne State University, Detroit Michigan, USA, where she became an Assistant Professor (1984-1987); from 1991 to 1994 she was Visiting Professor and Director of Metastasis Research Laboratory at Albert Einstein Medical Centre, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. 

As the director of the National Institute of Biology, for twenty consecutive years, Tamara Lah actively participates in national and international science policy. At present she is president of The Science and Technology Council of the Government of Slovenia. Prior to that (1993-1994), she was appointed as a Counsellor for Medical Sciences at the Ministry of Science and Technology of Slovenia. Between 2000 and 2008 she was president of Committee for Equal Opportunity for Women Scientists, and was an active member of the EU Helsinki group “Women in Science” for eight years.  In 2013 she was nominated by the Government of Slovenia to be the President of Committee for National  ZOIS Awards for Science.

Research - major achievements in the field:

Basic research interests of Prof. Tamara Lah Turnšek comprise the role of proteases and their inhibitors in physiological and pathological conditions, in particular in cancer, such as breast and brain tumours, e.g. glioma. The use of proteases is applicable in clinical practice, both in diagnostics and in therapy as biomarkers. She collaborated with KRKA company in the production of diagnostic immunoassays. She is an elected member of the European Organisation of Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC). In carcinogenesis research, her group recently published on the interesting mechanisms of arsenite (Trisenox) treatment of glioblastoma. Aside from that, her research team has focused on the chemopreventive, as well as cytotoxic effects of natural flavonoids, such as xanthohumol and resveratrol. Their recent efforts are focused on the possible use of selective cathepsins’ inhibitors in combination with chemo therapeutics.

As the tumour microenvironment also contributes to cancer progression and related proteolysis, her recent research is focused on the cross–communication between tumour and stromal cells. Among them are the stem cells, originating either from tumours or normal tissue. Recently she has been involved mostly in studying cellular interactions of cancer associated stem cells at transcriptomics and proteomics levels, using systems biology approaches. The potential application of mesenchymal stem cells is currently being investigated in collaboration with industrial partners, such as company Sanoz-Le. in Slovenia.

Tamara Lah was the leader of National research Projects as well as leading partner in joint International Grants including GLIOMA - Interreg Programme, Slovenia-Italy cooperation (2007-2013). Prior to that she was the Slovenian coordinator of the German - Slovene Virtual Institute in the field of “Industrial important molecular life sciences - INREMOS” project: “Systems Biology Tools Development for Cell Therapy and Drug Development - SYSTHER” (Co-PI- 2006-2011). She participated in EU-6FP Integrated Project # 503297: CANCERDEGRADOME: Extracellulaar Proteases and the Cancer Degradome: Innovative Diagnostic Markers, Therapeutic Targets and project Tumour Imgaing Agents: PI : Dylan Edwards, UK; Co-PI :Tamara Lah Turnšek, partner # 17, 2004-2009.

Tamara Lah Turnšek is a member of several national and international professional and scinetific societies, a member of EU Advisory Board and Comittees in the field of Life sciences and biomedicine and has served as evaluator in EU projects. She has also supervised over 30 Ms and PhD students in various fields of  her expertise.
