Short summary (English)

The scientific work of prof. Lacković Venturin research group includes: • the study of phenotypic characteristics and tissue distribution of lymphoid cells and mucosal immune response of pigs to infection with the bacteria E. coli. • prediction of the effects of metals in natural aquatic ecosystems and determination of specific histological changes and damage in relation to the type of metal, its concentration and exposure time to ensure protection of aquatic biodiversity. • basic biological research (reproductive biology and demographics) applicable in the planning of scientifically based conservation of endangered and potentially endangered species. Our research group is specialized for a wide range of animal tissue preparations and stainings, their analysis, digital image and image analysis (quantitative measurements) services using standard computerized software and finally interpretation of the results. Our methods are widely used in basic biological research and in numerous industries such as medicine, veterinary medicine, pharmacology and toxicology. In combination with other branches of biology, histology is indispensable discipline that can reconstruct the possible etiology of identified damage, monitor and predict the course, prognosis and outcome of pathological processes.

Short summary (Croatian)

Znanstveni rad istraživačke grupe prof. Lacković Venturin obuhvaća: • proučavanje fenotipske osobitosti i tkivne raspodjele limfoidnih stanica te mukoznu imunost svinja na infekcije bakterijom E. coli. • predviđanje utjecaja metala u prirodnim akvatičkim ekosustavima te određivanje specifičnih histoloških promjena i oštećenja u odnosu na vrstu metala, njegovu koncentraciju i vrijeme izloženosti radi određivanja dopuštenih koncentracija u vodi kako bi se osigurala zaštita akvatičke bioraznolikosti. • temeljna biološka istraživanja (reproduktivna i demografska biologija) primjenjiva u planiranju znanstveno utemeljene zaštite ugroženih i potencijalno ugroženih vrsta. Naša istraživačka grupa osposobljena je za izradu histološko-histokemijskih preparata svih vrsta životinjskog tkiva, njihovu analizu, kvantitativna mjerenja te interpretaciju dobivenih rezultata. Naše metode imaju široku primjenu u temeljnim biološkim istraživanjima te u brojnim granama poput medicine, veterine, farmacije i toksikologije. U kombinaciji s drugim granama biologije, histologija je nezaobilazna disciplina koja može rekonstruirati moguću etiologiju nađenih oštećenja, pratiti ali i predvidjeti tok, prognozu i ishod patološkog procesa.
