Nina Milevoj graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2016. She enrolled in the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme in Biomedicine in the same year and in 2020, she successfully defended her doctoral dissertation entitled »Evaluation of the procedures of electrochemotherapy and gene electrotransfer of plasmid DNA encoding canine interleukin-12 for the treatment of spontaneous cutaneous and oral tumours in dogs«, made under the mentorship of prof. dr. Nataša Tozon.

She spent two years as an exchange student at Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro in Portugal. Before graduation, she completed six months of practical training at the Royal Veterinary College London, Veterinary Referral and Critical Care Centre in Essex and University College Dublin.

Nina continues her research work at the Small Animal Clinic of the Veterinary Faculty, University of Ljubljana, within the basic research project »Monitoring of the clinical and immune response to improve the outcome of combined electrochemotherapy and IL-12 gene therapy in dogs with spontaneous peripheral tumours«, led by prof. dr. Nataša Tozon. In addition to research, she also performs clinical work and teaching of undergraduate students, mainly in the fields of oncology and computed tomography.
