Pegi Ahlin Grabnar is a lecturer in three different study programmes on Faculty of Pharmacy: Uniform master programme of pharmacy
University study programme Cosmetology
Master’s study programme Industrial Pharmacy
Doctoral degree programme of Biomedicine
She mentors students through thesis or dissertation research. If you are interested in writing a diploma or dissertation in her field, write to her at Pegi.AhlinGrabnar@ffa.uni-lj.si.
Her main research areas are nanotechnology and lyophilization of biopharmaceuticals.
Her work in the field of nanotechnology focuses on methods for the preparation and evaluation of various nanodelivery systems for active substances (solid lipid and polymer nanoparticles, polyelectrolyte nanocomplexes).
In the field of lyophilization of biopharmaceuticals, she investigates the influence of formulation and process parameters on the rate of drying. The main focus of her research is on optimising lyophilisation cycles, i.e. on the shortest possible and thus cost-effective processes for drying solutions of biological molecules.
She has presented on the above topics at several scientific meetings in Slovenia and abroad and published articles in national and international journals together with her professional colleagues. She is a reviewer of various international scientific journals. She leads and participates in industrial projects that have also ended with patents granted.
She is a member of the Commission for the Recognition of Foreign Education and the Slovenian Pharmaceutical Society.
Pegi Ahlin Grabnar has finished the study of pharmacy on Faculty of pharmacy, University of Ljubljana in 1995 with the defense of diploma entitled Design of in vitro method for monitoring the transport of active ingredients through the skin under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Julijana Kristl. The same year she was employed as young researcher at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Pharmacy, the Department of Pharmaceutical Technology. She received PhD in pharmaceutical sciences in 2000 with the defence of the dissertation entitled Development and study of solid lipid nanoparticles with the EPR method, carried out under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Julijana Kristl. She conducted part of research at Free University Berlin, Institute of Pharmaceutical Technology, Biopharmacy and Biotechnology and Jozef Stefan Institute. Since 2019 she has the position of Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical technology. In 2018, she visited the University of Padua, Department of Pharmaceutical and Pharmacological Sciences for 3 months, where she conducted research and gave lectures.
