Connect with Ivana Gantar
Ivana is amazed by what microscopes are able to show us and wants to continue discovering the world with these remarkable tools.
Ivana Gantar joined the Wyss Center in August 2020 as Microscopy Research Technician. Her main task is to image cleared samples with lightsheet microscopes. She is also responsible for preparing the samples with the Clarity protocol and for basic post-processing of the images obtained by the microscopes.
Ivana studied Biology at University of Ljubljana, Slovenia and obtained her master’s degree in Ecology and Biodiversity at the same university. During her studies she explored different dimensions of biology, from cells to ecosystems. She got the opportunity to work with a confocal microscope during her internship at CBM Severo Ochoa in Madrid and electron microscopes (SEM and TEM) during her master’s thesis project.
