- PhD Student
Born in Serbia, I obtained my BSc diploma in Molecular Biology and Physiology at University of Belgrade, Faculty of Biology (2014-2018). Afterwards, I enrolled MSc program in Human Molecular Biology at the same faculty and started working on my Master thesis, which was dealing with effects of hypoxia on the maintenance and neural differentiation of neural stem cells, in the lab of academician Milena Stevanovic at Institute of Molecular Genetics and Genetic Engineering, University of Belgrade. After obtaining MSc diploma, I enrolled PhD in Cancer Biology at the University of Zurich in the group of Prof. Lorenza Penengo in December 2019. My PhD project is focused on the role of Interferon signaling and especially Interferon Stimulated Gene 15 (ISG15) in the genome stability. Now, I am in the second year of my PhD studies, thrilled and motivated to see how my project will develop and where that will get me. When I am not in the lab, I enjoy skiing, cycling and traveling.
