Pavle R. Andjus 2014 International Biophysics Congress

Pavle R. Andjus

Prof. Andjus is current Head of Centre for laser microscopy, University of Belgrade Faculty of Biology and president of the Biophysical Society of Serbia. In 1981 he graduated in Molecular Biology and Physiology at the University of Belgrade and obtained his MSc and PhD in Biophysics at the same University. He was trained in the Institute for Biological Physics - Pushchino (USSR), MBL - Woods Hole (USA) and obtained a postdoc fellowship in SISSA, Neurobiophysics, Trieste (Italy). He started his research carrier in the Institute for General & Physical Chemistry, Belgrade as a young head of Biophysics lab where he developed studies on the biophysics of water and ion transport through cell membranes (1981-1999). His academic carrier started in 1989 at the University of Belgrade Faculty of Biology, where he is still employed and where he has been head of Chair in General Physiology and Biophysics, head of Department (Physiology & Biochemistry), vice dean for research and where he holds full professorship in Physiology and Biophysics since 2003 and chairs the PhD programme in Neurosciences. Outside his home institution he has been member of the committee of the Network of European Neuroscience Schools, delegate to the EC ESF/COST Domain Committee for Biomedicine and Molecular Biosciences, member of the University Council for Natural Sciences, and member of the Interdisciplinary Science Board for Biomedicine at the Ministry of Science. He was a visiting scientist at SISSA, Trieste (1994-1996) studying the electrophysiology of excitotoxicity in cultured neurons and at the Department for Neuroscience, University of Turin (1999-2002), where he explored the role of plasticity in the development of neuronal networks in the cerebellum. His current research within the Centre for laser microscopy that he founded in 2004 is mainly devoted to the cellular mechanism of pathophysiology in models of neurodegenerative diseases and conditions.
