  2. 2. Page 2 - Curriculum vitae (eCVf_en) TEACHING ACTIVITIES- Graduate teaching at the University of Split School of Medicine and University of Mostar School of Medicine: Core curriculum: Histology and Embryology Elective courses: "Development and congenital kidney diseases", “Diseases and Anomaly of head and neck”. - Postgraduate teaching; Postgraduate school of the University of Mostar School of Medicine: Elective u course: "Factors that influence early human development" RESEARCH EXPERIENCEIn Investigation in the field of normal human development with special emphasis on the differentiation of th the neural crest and formation of peripheral and central nervous system and pituitary gland (the pr processes of proliferation, differentiation, morphological diversity of dying cells, apoptosis and pr programmed cell death). In In my exchange postdoctoral fellowship (November 2009 – June 2010) at the Department of Bi Biochemistry and the Department of Medical Genetics and Microbiology, University of Toronto, I was w working on the project whose goal was to understand a physiological role of the recently indentified pr protein-protein interactions between a cytosolic deacetylase HDAC6 and numerous human receptor tyr tirosine kinases involved in the onset of cancers in humans, where I was also trained in the pr proteomics techniques developed by their laboratory (MYTH-membrane yeast two hybrid systems).
