Hi! Welcome to my blog. My name is Franjo Ivankovic and I am currently working on a Ph.D. in Genetics and Genomics and the University of Florida’s Genetics Institute. Long story short: I’m an aspiring scientist. Ever since I was a kid, I have had an unquenchable thirst for science and learning.
I’m passionate about human and mammalian biology! I enjoy learning about the biomolecular mechanisms triggering pathologies and molecular biology that drives disorders. I am particularly interested in the transient effects causing lasting pathologies, which is why I enjoy working on problems concerning RNA biology.
Besides science, I also enjoy pondering issues of social relevance – most often pertaining to religion. I consider myself to be a bookworm, and some of my favorite authors are R. Dawkins and C. Hitchens.
On this website, you can find my resume, list of publications I (co-)authored, and my ever-growing reading list with links to my reviews on Amazon.com.
Feel free to get in touch via the social media in the right side-bar. You can also fill out the contact form to shoot me an email – I promise I will get to it as soon as possible.
