Nenad Pavin
Associate Professor

Principal investigator of the group. We have regular meetings with Tolic group on Fridays at 3pm.

Marcel Prelogović
PhD student

Marcel investigates the role of cross-linking proteins in formation of microtubule bundles. His theory includes the angular movement of microtubules and kinetics of cross-linking proteins.

Maja Novak
PhD student

Maja investigates formation of the mitotic spindle in fission yeast. Her theory includes the role of motor proteins and angular movement of microtubules in formation of antiparallel structures. Maja also investigates force balance in mammalian spindles.

Agneza Bosilj
PhD student

Agneza investigates positioning of kinetochores during metaphase and anaphase. Her theory includes k-fiber and bundle of nonkinetochore microtubules as well as molecular motors that link these two populations of microtubules.
