Fascinated by photosynthesis? Keen to work on the most amazing molecular machinery evolved by nature?

Photosynthesis is a fundamental biochemical process on Earth evolved by cyanobacteria around 3 billion years ago. During the process of photosynthesis two large membrane protein complexes called photosystem I and II work as a couple to convert energy of photons into chemical energy. Assembled from tens of protein subunits and many cofactors photosystems belong to the most complex nano‐machines evolved by nature.

Our group studies biogenesis of photosynthetic membrane and the life‐cycle of photosynthetic complexes. In the laboratory we use a very broad spectrum of techniques including construction of mutants, various ‐omics, state‐of‐art biochemistry (protein pull‐down, different chromatography, 2D gels, radiolabelling), biophysics, confocal and electron microscopy. Our favorite model is the unicellular cyanobacterium Synechocystis PCC 6803.

There is a PhD position in a multidisciplinary project dealing with the regulatory role of tetrapyrroles (chlorophyll and heme) during the biogenesis of photosynthetic apparatus. The project builds upon our recent discoveries revealing the role of (heme‐producing) ferrochelatase enzyme as the master‐controller of the whole photosynthetic metabolism.

Probiotics are mostly useless and can actually hurt you
Probiotics are living micro-organisms that are taken by millions of people to boost their microbiome or to restore their gut ecosystem after a dose of antibiotics. Yet questions remain about whether they actually work.

The urinary microbiome associated with bladder cancer
An international group of scientists led by dr. Terzić, including Croatian microbiological society member dr. Viljemka Bučević Popović as a first author, have recently published a paper on the association of urinary microbiome and bladder cancer.

Veterinarska klinička imunologija

Iako je riječ o sveučilišnom udžbeniku, knjiga je po svom sadržaju i opsegu namijenjena i kolegama veterinarima koji rade u praksi, ponajprije onima koji se u svagdašnjem radu bave tzv. malom praksom.
