Sanja Glisic, Ph.D, is a Senior Research Associate at the Center for Multidisciplinary Research, Institute of Nuclear Sciences Vinca. Prior to that, she was working at the same Institute in Molecular Genetics and Antioxidants Research Laboratory. The research of Dr. Glisic is centered on monitoring and evaluation of epidemic / pandemic potential of pathogens, host-pathogen interactions, identification of new biological targets and selection of potential therapeutic molecules by using bioinformatics and chemoinformatics methods. For this purposes, her group utilizes the approach based on calculation of the electron-ion interaction potential (EIIP) determining the specific long-range intermolecular interactions in biological systems. Sanja Glisic received both her B.S. in Molecular Biology and Physiology and MSc in Molecular Biology and Genetic Epidemiology from the University of Belgrade and then earned her PhD in Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics under the direction of Veljko Veljkovic at the University of Belgrade. Her thesis work was focused on bioinformatics assessment of mutations in lipoprotein lipase as a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.. She has authored more than 40 peer-reviewed publications.
