Dr. Mirsada Ćehić


Dr. Mirsada Ćehić received her doctorate at the Faculty of Science, the University of Zagreb, in the domain of natural sciences, the field of chemistry. The title of the doctoral dissertation is “Study of novel fluorophore-guanidine conjugates as ligands of human dipeptidyl-peptidase III combined experimental and computational approach”, in which in vitro and in silico studies were carried out at the Ruđer Bošković Institute in Zagreb.

Dr. Ćehić is an employee at the University of applied sciences in security and safety. Her work is related to lectures on comprehensive courses on undergraduate and graduate level, mentoring students, writing publications, and research work.

During her doctoral studies, she participated in teaching at the Faculty of Science, and through research as part of her doctoral dissertation, she participated in two HRZZ research projects at the Ruđer Bošković Institute: HRZZ-IP-2018-01-2936 – Biological importance of dipeptidyl peptidase III and its impact on human health and HRZZ-IP-2018-01-5475 – Multichromophoric probes for the recognition of individual DNA, RNA, and protein structures.

As a postdoctoral researcher, she was an employee at the Ruđer Bošković Institute as part of the HRZZ project: HRZZ-IP-2018-01-1754 – Identification of the interactome of SSB paralogous proteins in the multicellular prokaryote, Streptomyces coelicolor, and is a collaborator on the HRZZ project: HRZZ-UIP-2020- 02-4857 – Light-driven functionalization of non-reactive positions using oxidative amination at the Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry, University of Zagreb.

Research work is attentive to the interdisciplinary field of natural sciences.
