Early Stage Researchers (ESRs)


Project 5: Genetic and stress effects on the geoarchitecture and transcriptions of the central amygdala

Locations:  Lleida University with secondments at University of St-Andrews and Hendrix Genetics

I received my BSc in Molecular Biology and Physiology from the University of Belgrade, Serbia. For my Bachelor’s thesis I focused on the role of molecular chaperons in various oxido-reductive states in bacteria. After my Bachelor’s degree I completed my Master’s degree in neurosciences that culminated with a thesis defense in Berlin. The topic of my research was transcriptional dysregulation in Huntington’s disease.  Apart from science I am passionate about nature, hiking and travelling.  I have lived in France, travelled to Morocco, Egypt, UK, Spain and the Czech Republic.  I'm interested in all sorts of art: literature, photography, music, movies, theatre but most of all folk tales.  I find happiness in moments of deep connection with my friends and family, moments of freedom and childlike joy in dancing and nature.
