Berislav Lisnic, PhD
Berislav Lisnić obtained his undergraduate degree in Biotechnology from the Faculty of Food Technology and Biotechnology, University of Zagreb and his PhD in Biology from the Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb. During that period, his research was focused mostly on elucidating the mechanisms of genome instability caused by repetitive DNA sequences and to a lesser extent to investigating the principles of gene targeting. After obtaining his PhD, he moved to a postdoctoral position at the Center for Proteomics, Faculty of Medicine in Rijeka, where he currently investigates the biology of the murine cytomegalovirus using next-generation sequencing, bioinformatics, yeast-two hybrid and genome recombineering techniques. He has published 8 scientific papers, received several awards for his work as a scientist and a teacher, and participated in several science popularization events such as “Researchers’ Night” in 2013 and ”Science after dark” in 2014. He has also translated the web-exhibition “Get inside your immune system” and is a reviewer for the Food Technology and Biotechnology journal.
