Academic Degree: Molecular Biologist and Physiologist, PhD in Biological Sciences
Current Position: Research Associate
Master’s in Molecular Biology and Physiology, Faculty of Biology, University of Belgrade, Serbia (2007). Master’s Work: “The polymorphism of CYP2E1 gene as a potential predisposing factor for the development of oral planocellular carcinoma”.
PhD in Biological Sciences, Faculty of Biology, University of Belgrade, Serbia (2015). PhD Work: “The role of Trichinella spiralis ESL1 antigens in shaping immune response in Dark Agouti rats”.
Research on mechanisms used by the parasite Trichinella spiralis and their molecules involved in immunomodulation in order that the findings be applied to the treatment of inflammatory diseases.
Actively participates in the research project funded by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia: “Mechanisms of the immune response to parasitic infection, or exposure to parasite antigens, and the concomitant modulation and/or prevention of unrelated diseases”. Participant in the international projects: COST Action BM1305: Action to Focus and Accelerate Cell-based Tolerance-inducing Therapies (A FACTT) (2014-2018) and FA COST Action FA1408: A European Network for Foodborne Parasites. Participated in the International FP6 project: “Reinforcement of the Serbian Centre for Parasitic Zoonozes” (2007-2009).
Other responsibilities involve laboratory diagnosis of autoimmune and parasitic diseases as well as Trichinellosis surveillance and monitoring of the Trichinella species circulation in Serbia.
