Radoslav Savic, PhD

  • ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Genetics and Genomic Sciences

Research Topics:

Adipose, Aging, Anti-Tumor Therapy, Apoptosis/Cell Death, Cell Biology, Diabetes, Drug Design and Discovery, Gene Expressions, Gene Therapy, Genomics, Image Analysis, Intracellular Transport, Lipid Signaling, Lysosomes/endosome, Mitochondria, Nanotechnology, Oxidative Stress, Pharmacology, RNA, Signal Transduction, Systems Biology, Technology & Innovation, Translational Research, Two-Photon Imaging

Dr. Savic obtained his Ph.D. degree from Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University, Montreal, Canada. He then completed postdoctoral training at Mount Sinai in laboratories of world experts in diabetes (Dr. LeRoith); liver diseases (Drs. Friedman and Llovet); and lysosomal storage disorders (Dr. Schuchman). Working with clinician/translational scientists enabled Dr. Savic to experience firsthand the processes and challenges of progression of small molecule drugs and biologics from laboratory and pre-clinical research to clinical trials. Dr. Savic also conducted advanced pre-clinical studies of select clinical grade enzymes, e.g., those used in treatment of rare lysosomal storage disorders, repurposed for potential use as adjuvant treatments of cancer.
