Za ekonomiju (F)BiH nisu prihvatljive stope ekonomskog rasta niže od 5-7% godišnje. Nužno je povećavati produktivnost za minimalno 2-3% (radi postizanja zadovoljenja EU kriterija konkurentnosti), uz istovremeno povećanje zaposlenosti od barem 1.5 %. Tek dvocifrena stopa rasta od oko 10.5-11.0 % na deset godina osigurava dostizanje dohotka p.c. od 1...

Bilo kada, kad moramo presaditi organ ili organe s jedne osobe na drugu, primateljevo tijelo teži da odbaci strano (inplantirano) tijelo (tj. organ). Kako bi se spriječila ova odbacivanja moderna medicina koristi moćne imunosupresive. Danas, imunosupresivna terapija je dizajnirana za suzbijanje svih imunosnih reakcija, uključujući i one na: bakteri...

In practical terms, whenever tissues are transplanted from one person to another it is essential to suppress the immune response of the recipient, no matter how perfect the HLA matching has been. When cellular (i.e. histo) compatibility differences exist, between donor and recipient, it is necessary to modify or suppress the immune response in orde...

Question
The understanding of transplant immunology has advanced from gross allograft rejection to cellular response and to current molecular level. More sensitive assays have been developed to characterize patient sensitization and to detect pre-existing donor-specific antibodies (DSA) in pre-transplant cross-match. After a transplant, pre-existing or de novo DSA are increasingly monitored to guide clinical management. Therefore, it is important for clinicians to understand the basic concepts and key components of transplant immunology as well as be familiarized with the modern immunological techniques used in kidney transplantation.
When a foreign organ, such as a kidney, is transplanted into a non-identical individual of the same species, the organ is called an allograft. The immune response from the recipient to the allograft is termed an (allo)-immune response.

Project
There are three main research goals: to examine the (1) role of individual-level factors in adopting beliefs in just war ; (2) universality (vs. cultural specificity) of beliefs related to just war; and (3) macro-level factors moderating the concept of just war across national and religious backgrounds. To examine the concept of just war we use three-dimensional model of beliefs in just war: (1) just war – restricted view on reasons and means of war, as self-defensive and targeted only toward military goals; (2) utilitarian war – unrestricted view on war reasons, accepting war as a way of intergroup conflicts resolutions; (3) dirty war – unrestricted view on war means, accepting any means useful in defeating the enemy.
Project
A key objective of the project is to present the latest achievements in the field of public management, with a particular focus on the realization of the idea of so-called smart cities. Ideas, scientific publications and good practices will be exchanged.
