Tadej Satler has obtained MSc in Biochemistry from the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology at the University of Ljubljana. This year he wants to pursue his career in science as a PhD candidate. During his studies, he gained the most of his research experience at the Department of Synthetic Biology and Immunology at the National Institute of Chemistry, where he also did his master thesis supervised by prof. dr. Roman Jerala. He was involved in the preparation and characterization of modular protein nanostructures made from coiled coils. Tadej also participated in a research exchange at Stockholm University where he studied the regulation of nitrogen fixation in photosynthetic bacteria. Currently, he is doing an internship at the University of Bristol, where he is developing computational and experimental skills in the field of de novo protein design.
As part of the ASEF fellowship program, Tadej will have an opportunity to visit the Prof. Andrej Šali at the University of California San Francisco, where he wants to deepen his knowledge in computational and structural biology.
