I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree in Molecular Biology and Physiology at the Faculty of Biology, University of Belgrade. During my undergraduate studies, I did an internship and later my Master's thesis project in the Laboratory for Molecular Biology at the Institute of Molecular Genetics and Genetic Engineering, one of the leading scientific institutions in Serbia, where I gained laboratory skills in genetics and biochemistry techniques. My master’s thesis project was focused on investigating the effects of montelukast treatment on bronchial epithelial cells. With this knowledge, experience and motivation, I was selected as a participant in Kupcinet-Getz International Summer School at the Weizmann Institute, where I had the opportunity to work in Prof. Yosef Yarden's Lab. There, I was introduced to the EGFR family, investigating the role of EGFR/ErbB2 role in cancer. Later, I decided to proceed with my career in a similar field. In 2018, I was awarded a place on the SEMM PhD program in Molecular Oncology at IEO. I joined the Endocytosis, Signaling and Cancer group of Prof. Pier Paolo Di Fiore, with a project focused on the molecular characterization of non-clathrin endocytosis. In 2021, I was awarded a 3-year AIRC Fellowship to conduct a project on dissecting the role of non-clathrin endocytosis of the EGFR in cell physiology and in breast cancer.
