Bjelic Lab


We are interested in understanding molecular interactions in biology.

To our help we use a combined computational and experimental approach; we often start by applying molecular modelling to build proteins or small-molecules that in theory will interact with a target followed by biochemical validation.

For opportunities in the lab, research interests, etc. please visit our website


I am involved in teaching mainly biochemistry on undergrad level, where I'm also the course responsible and examiner. We also supervise students on the undergrad and graduate levels mainly with projects that are carried out in our laboratory with focus on protein engineering.
