JOKSIC, Dr. Gordana
Dr. Gordana Joksic, biologist, PhD, research professor at the Vinča Institute has a background in radiation biology and genetic toxicology. She was the first to characterize the role of mitochondrial superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) in modulating the radiosensitivity of human cells, and provided experimental evidence that MnSOD determines the relative biological effectiveness of ionizing radiation. During recent years the focus of her main line of research is selection of substances with radioprotective and antimutagenic properties with potential medical use. She collaborates with the University of Bologna, Italy and with the Brunel University, UK.
