Duje Buric

Duje Buric (born in Split, Croatia) studied Molecular Biology in Zagreb, Croatia. During his masters, he did his final project in the laboratory of Prof. Ivan Dikic at the Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences on novel proteins containing ubiquitin binding zinc finger domains. In 2010, he enrolled in the Molecular Life Sciences PhD program at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) where he worked in the laboratory of Professor Cathrin Brisken, which is also a part of the Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research (ISREC). During his PhD, he focused on the role of Notch signaling in the development of the mammary gland, particularly in differentiation of the epithelial cells expressing hormone receptors. Since November 2015, he is a Postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Research in Oncobiology and Oncopharmacology (C.R.O.2) in Marseille, France where he is developing novel therapy approaches for glioblastoma and lung cancer using theranostic agents.
