    Ivana Martinic

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford

    BioIvana Martinić is currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the department of radiology at Stanford University. She received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Molecular Biotechnology from University of Zagreb (Croatia), in 2011 and 2013, and M.Sc. degree in Bioindustrial Techniques from University of Orléans (France), in 2013. Her research during M.Sc. was focused on: `Exploring of a New Nuclear mRNA Surveillance Pathway in Saccharomyces Cerevisiae`. She received her PhD degree in biology/biochemistry in 2016 at the University of Orléans (France) under supervision of Prof. Stéphane Petoud and Dr. Svetlana V. Eliseeva and support of a Marie Curie fellowship. Her research interests were focused on development of near-infrared (NIR) optical imaging agents based on lanthanide ions (e.g. small molecules, polymetallic complexes, Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs), polyamidoamine dendrimers and nanoparticles) for applications in cancer research and diagnostics. As a complement and continuation of her PhD work she has worked on a maturation project financially supported by the Technology Transfer Company (SATT Grand Centre, France) that has the main goal to create and characterize imaging agents as commercially valuable products. She is co-inventor of five patents and has published a few peer-reviewed papers in high ranking journals and gave several talks at international conferences.
