Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s Tanja Dominko Named Slovenian Ambassador of Science for 2013
Date:12/10/2013

Worcester, MA (PRWEB) December 10, 2013

Tanja Dominko, DVM, PhD, associate professor of biology and biotechnology at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), is the 2013 Slovenian Ambassador of Science, a national award given to one Slovenian native each year in recognition of outstanding achievements and global scientific impact. The award also honors Dominko's international engagement in developing programs that bring together WPI students and faculty members with Slovenian colleagues to address important biomedical challenges.

Slovenian President Borut Pahor presided at the awards ceremony on Nov. 22, 2013, in the city of Maribor, where Dominko joined nine other scientists and engineers who received national awards for a range of accomplishments. At the event, President Pahor spoke of the vital need to support scientific research and education on a global basis to help improve the human condition—a message that Dominko says resonates deeply with her personal and professional goals to discover and translate new knowledge of human physiology to help cure disease.

"When I learned that I was selected, it was a special moment," she said. "Knowing that after working in the United States for 23 years, that the people of my homeland recognized the value of what we have been doing here gave me a sweet feeling inside. What is most important, though, is the work we are continuing to do, both here at WPI and at the University of Nova Gorica in Slovenia, to help make regenerative cell therapies a reality for all people, regardless of where they live or their ability to pay for treatment."

In a written statement congratulating Dominko for her award, Dr. Božo Cerar, Slovenian Ambassador to the United States, said, "I wish to express my sincere compliments for your outstanding work in the area of stem cell research, regenerative medicine, and tissue engineering, moreover for your valuable rol
