University of Belgrade, Serbia


Zoran Vujcic received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in biochemistry from the Department of Biochemistry, Belgrade University, Serbia, in 1987, 1992, and 1997, respectively. In 2009, he was appointed as an Associate Professor at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Belgrade, Serbia. His research areas include production and purification of enzymes (e.g., peptidases, peroxidases, amylases, invertase and glucose oxidase, and phenol oxidase) from various sources, improvement of micropreparative techniques for protein purification and development of zymogram procedures, enzyme immobilization techniques (using natural, synthetic, and composed materials) and their use in continual substrate biotransformations (bioreactors), chemical modifications of proteins, examination of effects of modification on the structure and function of proteins, application of biocatalyst in bioremediation (enzymatic removal of phenols and dyes from wastewater) and bioethanol and invert sugar production, with a special emphasis on renewable natural materials as a source of new products and connection between chemistry of natural products with food chemistry and natural food contaminants.
