    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse Overview
    Goran earned his Ph.D. at North Carolina State University (environmental and molecular toxicology), and M.S. at San Diego State University (Environmental Health). He is interested in gene-environment interaction: how individuals and natural populations respond, cope, and adapt to stress. This work is interdisciplinary and utilizes natural populations and model organisms, field sampling, chemical abiotic and biotic analyses, in vivo and in vitro biology (morphology, histopathology, cardiac physiology, gene expression), and analyses of large gene expression data sets.

    Goran’s research expertise is in developmental and evolutionary biology, toxicology, and genomics. He teaches bioinformatics, genetics, and molecular biology / biochemistry-related technical laboratory courses at the UCSD Division of Biology, and serves as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at SDSU Graduate School of Public Health. Several main themes drive his current research interests:

    1. Individual and natural population genomic responses and adaptive mechanisms to environmental stress during embryogenesis;
    2. Stress-induced, gender-specific metabolic gene expression in the brain;
    3. Ecological and human health risk assessment.

    Goran’s goal is to help establish a modern and dynamic science research and learning program where future leaders ask important questions, collaborate on exciting projects, and innovate life science education.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
