Biography

Bojana Gligorijevic, PhD, graduated Chemistry at University of Belgrade with an honors thesis in analytical chemistry, isolating active compounds from endemic plants. At Georgetown University, Dr. Gligorijevic’s PhD chemistry thesis took a turn when she first saw a fluorescent microscope. She ended up developing new technologies for automated 4D imaging and analysis of malaria division and metabolic processes. During her postdoctoral training in cancer biology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, she developed new tools for intravital imaging in mouse models and contributed to the current view of tumor cell intravasation mechanism in tumor microenvironment context.
