Janez Strancar graduated from the Department of Physics, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 1996 with thesis Študij transporta spinsko oznacenih lipofilnih molekul skozi biološke membrane z metodo elektronske paramagnetne resonance. In 2000, Strancar received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Ljubljana in biophysics with thesis EPR spectroscopy of cell membrane surface. From 2002 to 2003, he received postdoctoral training at the Institute of Biophysics and X-ray structure research, Graz, Austria. He held several posts, for example, in 2007, he served as Visiting Professor at the University of Provence, Marseille, France, Lecturer at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, University of Maribor, Maribor, Slovenia, in 2008, and Lecturer at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Ljubljana in 2009. Currently, he serves as Head of the Laboratory of Biophysics and Research Program of Experimental biophysics of complex systems. Moreover, He is Head of the Biogroup (RRP5) at the Center of Excellence NAMASTE, Ljubljana, Slovenia. Further, he held other responsibilities: from 2004 to 2007, he was Vice-President of the Slovenian biophysical society and from 2007 to 2011, he served as President of the Slovenian Biophysical Society. His areas of expertise include membrane and protein biophysics; EPR and ATR-FTIR spectroscopies; fluorescence microspectroscopies; spectral analysis and structure modeling.
