Tamara Topalović

Tamara Topalović was born in Zagreb in 1998. She graduated from the XV Gymnasium in Zagreb in 2017 and became a pharmacy student at the Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry. From her first year at the faculty she has been a member of the Croatian Pharmacy and Medical Biochemistry Students’ Association (CPSA) and she became a member of Recipe in the academic year 2020/21. Studying pharmacy was not always her first plan but looking back, it was inevitable since she always had an interest in exploring various plants, preparing tinctures from these plants and she was never ready to accept that a cure for a disease does not exist. Today her interests gravitate more towards pharmacology, clinical pharmacy and new drug delivery systems, but drugs isolated from natural sources still fascinate her.
