Veljko Veljkovic was born in January 17, 1947, in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. He obtained a Ph.D. degree, 1973, in theoretical physics from the University of Belgrade, Yugoslavia, M.S. degree, 1971, in chemical engineering, and B.S. degree, 1969, in metallurgy from the same university. He worked at the Laboratory for Theoretical Physics, Institute of Nuclear Science Vinca Belgrade, Yugoslavia from 1969 to 1985. His research areas include Solid state physics and material science, Biophysics Center for Multidisciplinary Research, Institute of Nuclear Science Vinca, Belgrade, Yugoslavia, since 1986, bioinformatics, protein engineering, AIDS research, influenza research, and drug discovery. His scientific interests include Solid state physics: the development of the general model pseudo potential and its application in research of electronic properties, phonon spectra and superconductivity of metals and intermetallic compounds from 1969 to 1975, biophysics: chemical carcinogenesis, toxicology, and molecular pharmacology from 1976 to 1980, bioinformatics: development of the informational spectrum method and its application in structure/function analysis of nucleotide and protein sequences from 1981 to 1987, AIDS research: interactions between HIV envelope protein and immune system and the role of the molecular mimicry in pathogenesis of AIDS since 1988, and bioinformatics: protein-protein interactions, Structure/function analysis of protein, and nucleotide sequences.
