The University of Ljubljana’s Rector Activity Report for 2015

The University of Ljubljana’s Rector Activity Report is printed and posted in electronic version (uni-lj.si).

The title page, except for the slogan of “A Way to Success through Integration” is adorned with the Zika virus under a high-powered electron microscope. A sample of this virus was not chosen by chance. This is an outstanding discovery of the scientists from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Ljubljana, who first proved the link between the Zika virus and brain damage in an embryo that leads to microcephaly, cerebral palsy, and other severe ailments of new-borns (svet24.si).

The resonance of this discovery, of course, influenced the growth in popularity and prestige of the University of Ljubljana among the general public worldwide.
