Andreja Jovic is a postdoctoral research fellow working in the laboratory of Dana Pe’er. As a graduate student at the University of Michigan Department of Biomedical Engineering, his thesis work focused on the elucidation and manipulation of cellular signaling through the use of microfluidics. His current work in the Pe’er lab focuses on understanding cancer signaling through the use of mathematical modeling. Andreja has been the recipient of the ACS Postdoctoral Fellowship and the Rackham Predoctoral Fellowship.
