Event Type: 

Tina graduated from University of Zagreb with a degree in Molecular Biology during which she worked in Ivan Dikic's lab as an undergraduate. Tina did her PhD at MRC-LMB with Sarah Teichmann, working together with Cyrus Chothia and Jane Clarke on the evolution of protein complexes. In 2013 Tina moved to UCSF as a Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellow to work with Tanja Kortemme and Nevan Krogan on the mechanism of functional multi-specificity in a small GTPase switch.
